Abstract:

The objective of this task was to determine the relative merit and economy of various types of external protective coverings for underground metal, cold pipes in the highly corrosive soil at the Naval Ordnance Test Station, China Lake, California. Final results showed no corrosion on galvanized steel pipe that was factory-wrapped with resin-impregnated glass cloth. Black steel pipe that was wrapped with black polyvinylchloride plastic tape was in excellent condition. Extreme care was necessary during installation to prevent cuts or nicks in the tape. The black steel pipes protected by bituminous coating, cured gilsonite, and uncured gilsonite had deteriorated badly.
