Abstract:

Paint - and - varnish coatings are not a reliable means of protection from corrosion and fouling of ship hulls for the inter-docking period. In Soviet and foreign shipbuilding, electrochemical protection is used in combination with paint - and - varnish coatings. Protector-type galvanic shielding and the impressed current cathodic protection system are discussed and evaluated.
