Abstract:

The use of protective coatings is a common method of corrosion control in the marine industry. To ensure that these coatings remain intact and effective, they must be inspected periodically so that damaged areas are discovered and repaired. Currently there are no widely accepted standard methods for shipboard inspection of anticorrosive coating systems. Therefore, the Navy, the Maritine Administration, and the shipbuilding industry cosponsored a program directed at standardizing the methods used for shipboard inspection of coating systems and for reporting inspection data. The output of this program was the development of four inspection standards for different ship areas. These four standards have been adopted by the American Society for Testing and Materials ASTM as ASTM standards. This report discusses the development of these inspection standards.
