Abstract:

Various over-rust primers top-coated with government specification paint TT-E-489D were applied over brush-off sandblasted and wire-brushed rusted steel specimens and were exposed 5 yr at three Civil Engineering Laboratory CEL marine atmospheric test sites. The performance of the coating system at the CEL test sites was compared with that of the government specification test standard coated over sandblasted, brush-off sandblasted, and wire-brushed steel specimens. The results indicate that a coating system using a superior over-rust primer can provide protection comparable to that of the test standard applied over the sandblasted steel specimens. However, most of the over-rust primers tested provided less protection than the test standard. A test standard coated with a wash primer Formula 117 provided poorer protection than the same coating system without the wash primer when applied over the rusted steel specimens. Estimating anticipated durability of coating system at one site from data obtained from another site by a regression analysis is also illustrated. Author
