Care, Handling, and Installation of Internally Plastic- Coated Oilfield Tubular Goods and Accessories
|Publication Date:||24 June 2005|
This standard presents guidelines for the proper care, handling, and installation of IPC oilfield tubular goods and accessories.
The function of the internal coating system is to form a protective barrier between the metal surface and the environment to prolong the useful life of the tubular goods and accessories.
If the coating is damaged during storage, handling, transportation, or installation, the protective barrier may be broken. This reduces coating performance and may result in premature failure.
This standard addresses specific areas of concern to help prevent or minimize damage to IPC material during all phases of handling, transportation, storage, and installation.
