Coating systems to include passivation, primer and topcoats comprise the most widely used methodology for corrosion protection. As new coating systems are developed we often compare them to the standard chromated systems. However, the mechanism of coating degradation is not always constant and can change with various environmental stimuli as well as with the coating system. In this technical session we will explore various methods for obtaining reliable accelerated aging data which can replicate actual field observations of coating degradation.
