Abstract:

Conclusions 1 It has been claimed that electrical measurements on coatings immersed in an electrolyte can be used to predict coating performance. 2 No published papers show detailed correlation of electrical measurements with exposure results for a large number of coatings and the validity of the methods has not been proven. 3 Further investigations of some of the electrical methods, including measurements of the dissipation factor, D. C. resistance, and capacitance, are needed to determine their validity as accelerated tests. Author
