For reinforced concrete (RC) structures that are in drier locations but still need of cathodic protection (CP), impressed current cathodic protection (ICCP) systems are preferred. In this study, the performance of activated zinc anodes installed on dry or high resistance concrete on Florida Bridges was evaluated.
This updated NACE International standard test method specifies test methods to evaluate the performance of liquid coating systems for seawater immersion services. This test method is intended for use by facility owners and coating manufacturers.The test method covers liquid exterior protective coating systems for offshore platform steel structures, piers, docks, pilings, subsea valves, and wellheads at normal seawater temperature.
Included are four test methods—including cathodic disbondment, seawater immersion resistance, aging stability, and edge coverage—used to evaluate coating systems. The test method also includes two tables; Table 1 details fingerprinting of coating materials, and Table 2 details the test panel geometry, size, substrate material, and minimum quantity.
