Abstract:

Specifications on zinc-rich paints that are now in use or proposed have been collected from governmental agencies, industry associations, and manufacturers. A tabulated comparison of 48 specifications, which were received in time for compilation, is presented. Complete copies of all those received, 78 in number, are appended. The choice of requirements for a new specification depends upon the selection of the formula, performance, andor qualified product approaches. Statements of requirements in current specifications are adequate to cover all aspects except the characterization of the basic electrochemical protective function peculiar to the zinc-rich paints. Development of suitable electricalelectrochemical test specifications is recommended. Author
