Abstract:

This final report, supplement to CEL Technical Report TR-711, presents additional results of the investigation of protective coating systems of various generic types that were applied to 10-foot steel panels. These simulated steel pilings were suspended from a corrosion dock in the mouth of Port Hueneme Harbor so that the bottom portion was in continuous immersion, the middle portion in the tidal zone, and the top portion in the atmosphere. Results are given for coating systems that were performing satisfactorily at the time TR-711 was issued. Exposure times for the 85 coating systems suspended from the corrosion dock ranged from 9 to 21-12 years. Author
