Validation of corrosion monitoring sensors through accelerated disbonded coating corrosion testing

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_acf field_group=”3279″ field_from_3279=”field_5b7cf545d605d” show_label=”yes” el_class=” “][vc_acf field_group=”3279″ field_from_3279=”field_5b7cf51dd605c” show_label=”yes”][vc_acf field_group=”3279″ field_from_3279=”field_5b7cf568d605e” show_label=”yes”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Abstract Disbonded coatings are a major concern for the pipeline industry because not only they could give place to several forms of localized external corrosion, but also because they are extremely difficult to locate, identify and evaluate through above surface surveys. In order […]

Anticorrosive Testing of Less Toxic, Environmentally Friendly Coating Systems Designed for Military Aircraft

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_acf field_group=”3279″ field_from_3279=”field_5b7cf545d605d” show_label=”yes” el_class=” “][vc_acf field_group=”3279″ field_from_3279=”field_5b7cf51dd605c” show_label=”yes”][vc_acf field_group=”3279″ field_from_3279=”field_5b7cf568d605e” show_label=”yes”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Abstract Military aircraft employ coating systems formulated to provide good long-term exterior durability performance, including resistance to corrosion and topcoat degradation. Other desirable properties include chemical resistance, flexibility, adhesion and cleanability. These coating systems are traditionally formulated with volatile organic solvents and use […]

The Role of Computed Tomography in Understanding Inhibitor Release from Coatings

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_acf field_group=”3279″ field_from_3279=”field_5b7cf545d605d” show_label=”yes” el_class=” “][vc_acf field_group=”3279″ field_from_3279=”field_5b7cf51dd605c” show_label=”yes”][vc_acf field_group=”3279″ field_from_3279=”field_5b7cf568d605e” show_label=”yes”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Abstract The mechanism of inhibitor release from coatings containing corrosion inhibitors is important in many industries from aerospace to infrastructure. Models of release often assume Fickian diffusion and treat the polymer matrix as a medium through which this occurs. However, the details of […]

Determining the required voltages for holiday testing dual layer fusion bonded epoxy coatings

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_acf field_group=”3279″ field_from_3279=”field_5b7cf545d605d” show_label=”yes” el_class=” “][vc_acf field_group=”3279″ field_from_3279=”field_5b7cf51dd605c” show_label=”yes”][vc_acf field_group=”3279″ field_from_3279=”field_5b7cf568d605e” show_label=”yes”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Abstract A standard test for detecting coating holidays is to apply a high voltage to a coated pipe that would break down the air gap between the metal surface at the holidays and a test electrode travelling over the coated surface.
