Chloride induced corrosion is the prime reason for the degradation of embedded rebar in reinforced concrete marine structures. The present study experimentally investigates the effectiveness of traditional two-component epoxy (EPX), and moisture-cure polyurethane coatings (MC) applied on the concrete surface in reducing the rate of chloride ingression compared to the conventional concrete with and without mineral admixtures like fly ash and GGBS. Coatings used in the present study are characterized by XRD, EDAX, FEG-SEM, water uptake, adhesion strength and contact angle tests. Rapid chloride migration tests (RCMT) were conducted on concrete with and without coatings. Resistivity offered against the chloride migration monitored during the RCMT test indicated that concrete with MC shown higher resistivity in the initial period and continued to decrease over the test duration at a faster rate, unlike EPX. The non-steady-state migration coefficients of the concrete cured for 28days and coated with MC and EPX coatings were found to be nearly 22% and 48% of that of concrete with SCM cured for 84days respectively. The study is further extended to monitor the corrosion of rebar embedded in coated concrete subjected to corrosion acceleration until the first crack appeared on an uncoated specimen. Variation in current flow, half-cell potentials recorded during the acceleration test and actual mass loss of embedded rebar estimated by gravimetric analysis are presented in this paper.
Polarization measurements were conducted over a 21-year period on bare and coated steel "H" pilings 6 inch by 6 inch by 30 feet (15.2 cm by 15.2 cm by 9.1 m) installed in seawater. A DC power source was used to shift from the corrosion potential of each pile to -0.85V. The amount of potential shift was recorded as 6V. The current (6I) required to shift the potential was measured, and a nonlinear pseudoresistance (6V/6I), called the Cathodic Protection Index (CPI), was calculated. The CPI was compared with the coating condition of the steel pilings as determined visually using ASTM standards. Results of these tests will be presented and discussed.
HISTORICAL DOCUMENT. This technical committee report describes the major thermal spray coatings used in the oil and gas production industry. These coatings include a variety of metallic, ceramic, and cermet materials applied as relatively thin overlays on metallic substrates (components). No attempt is made to be all-inclusive in the coverage of process variants.
