The research described in this paper was carried out with the objective of establishing any correlation between coating performance and the results of cathodic disbondment testing. Experiments were carried out using 13 coatings. Nine samples of each coating were studied in a total of 117 experiments.
This paper will consider the performance and relevance to static situations of the key types of Cathodic dip painting (CDP) Antifoulings (Rosin Modified types), the current tin free polishing types (typically acrylates of various types), and low energy surface types. Both field experience and laboratory work will be considered.
