The application of thin-film coatings is a method to protect armatures, accessories, and control elements on offshore facilities against corrosion and mechanical damages. The performance of a dual-layer thin-film (30 mu m) coating system under simulated Arctic offshore exposure was investigated. The coating system consisted of polyamide-based primer and molybdenum-disulfide (MoS2)/polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE)-modified topcoat. The investigations involved the following tests: accelerated corrosion protection/ aging tests, coating adhesion tests, scanning electron microscopy (SEM)/energydispersive X-ray (EDX) inspections, static contact angle measurements, specific surface energy measurements, hoarfrost accretion, and abrasion resistance tests. The test conditions were adapted to Arctic offshore conditions. Effects of accelerated offshore aging on surface morphology, surface chemistry, and hoarfrost accretion were also investigated.
