In his presentation, Buckhurst will discuss coatings that meet the needs of users, emphasizing the importance of these coatings having built-in safety margins. These margins can increase the lifespan of a coating even when temperatures exceed what the coating was designed to accommodate, which is known to occur in refineries.
