Introduction to AWWAC210 standard
Pipeline coating is a critical aspect of pipeline construction that protects the pipeline from corrosion, abrasion, and other types of damage. To ensure the longevity and durability of pipeline coating, it’s essential to follow strict standards and guidelines. One such standard is the AWWAC210 standard, which is considered the gold standard for pipeline coating.
The AWWAC210 standard, also known as the Liquid-Epoxy Coating Systems for the Interior and Exterior of Steel Water Pipelines, is a set of guidelines developed by the American Water Works Association (AWWA) for the application of pipeline coatings. The standard outlines the minimum requirements for the coating material, surface preparation, and application techniques to ensure the coating’s quality and performance.
The AWWAC210 standard specifies the dry film thickness, adhesion, and other physical properties that a pipeline coating must meet to protect the pipeline effectively. For instance, the standard requires a dry film thickness of at least 16 mils (406um) and adhesion of 800psi (5115kPa) to ensure that the coating remains firmly attached to the pipeline surface.
Moreover, the AWWAC210 standard is designed to ensure that the coating is applied correctly and uniformly, regardless of the environmental conditions or location. The standard outlines specific preparation steps that must be taken before applying the coating, including the cleaning and drying of the pipeline surface. It also specifies the appropriate conditions for curing the coating to ensure that it reaches its maximum performance potential.
