Soluble Salt Opinions?

May 17, 2017
Elzly Technology Corporation is conducting a survey of coating inspectors on the detection and remediation of soluble salts. We invite all coating inspectors to participate in the survey. The survey should take most users 10-15 minutes to complete (dependent on the extent of experience with salt detection and remediation). The survey can be accessed at the following link:

The subject paper presents updated inspection data from a Federal Highway Administration study of the effect of local environments on the degradation of alternative bridge coating materials. Exposure data covers up to nine years of service in several diverse environments, including sites representative of marine, industrial and rural service environments. Paint deterioration is characterized as the result of local atmospheric parameters, time of wetness and airborne contaminants.

Title
Coating Assessment for Prediction of Service Life
Abstract
Protective coatings are the primary method of corrosion control for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) weapon systems and infrastructure. Coating selection is often based on laboratory and field testing and careful monitoring of new materials as they are introduced. Ultimately a life is ascribed to these coatings and budgets and schedules are bui...

Protective coatings are the primary method of corrosion control for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) weapon systems and infrastructure. Coating selection is often based on laboratory and field testing and careful monitoring of new materials as they are introduced. Ultimately a life is ascribed to these coatings and budgets and schedules are built around these expectations. Significant ?scatter? may be observed in coating performance during tests and initial use. This is often ascribed to ?uncontrolled? application conditions and the results may be discounted. A common application requirement is the control of a coating?s dry film thickness (DFT). Using a simple Monte Carlo model, the authors illustrate the impact of application thickness on the observed coating life. The discussion supports an alternative view of both laboratory and field data collection and analysis for a meaningful prediction of coating life

Title
Coating Inspection Data Reproductibility
Abstract
An NSRP-sponsored project investigating the cost of coatings QA suggested that current QA/QC processes have a high tendency to lead to conflict. Survey data collected during the project indicates that one in 20 inspection checkpoints is likely to result in a dispute. Some of these disputes may simply arise from the expected variability in standard ...

An NSRP-sponsored project investigating the cost of coatings QA suggested that current QA/QC processes have a high tendency to lead to conflict. Survey data collected during the project indicates that one in 20 inspection checkpoints is likely to result in a dispute. Some of these disputes may simply arise from the expected variability in standard coating QA test methods. Data regarding the reproducibility of coating QA measurements is generally not well understood and, in some cases non-existent. The paper will discuss the reproducibility of various measurements used in the industrial protective coatings industry.

Corrosion Control Performance Evaluation of Environmentally Acceptable Alternatives for Cadmium Plating
Abstract

Cadmium is also a toxic heavy metal that is coming under increasingly restrictive EPA/OSHA rules.

Cadmium plating processes are a major source of hazardous wastes at Army production and maintenance facilities. Cadmium is also a toxic heavy metal that is coming under increasingly restrictive EPA/OSHA rules. To avoid generation of cadmium bearing wastes and to improve worker health/safety, the Army Acquisition Pollution Prevention Support Office initiated the subject program. The program objective is to identify environmentally acceptable alternatives for cadmium coatings and to implement these alternatives at Army field activities. The Phase I program was designed as a screening test for a wide range of cadmium substitutes. Fifteen potential alternatives were applied to complex steel test panels and exposed for a period of one-year to actual marine, industrial, and rural atmospheres. Screening tests included corrosion control performance, adhesion, lubricity and resistance to stress corrosion cracking. The Phase I program results indicate that coatings based on zinc alloys and ion vapor-deposited aluminum are the most effective cadmium substitutes. Based on these Phase I results, a Phase II program was developed to address specific technical requirements associated with Army implementation. A proposed Phase II test program has been presented to the United States Army Tank and Automotive Command. The program primarily addresses the lubricity of cadmium substitutes on representative tactical vehicle fasteners, currently a significant area where cadmium is used.

Corrosion Performance of Common Materials of Manufacture for Military Vehicles and Weapon Systems in the Hawaiian Islands
Abstract
In 2004 a test program was initiated that exposed materials commonly used in the manufacture of military vehicles and weapon systems in various climates within the Hawaiian Islands.

In 2004 a test program was initiated that exposed materials commonly used in the manufacture of military vehicles and weapon systems in various climates within the Hawaiian Islands. These samples were exposed at test sites established under the Pacific Rim Corrosion Research Program (PRCRP), which represent various micro-climates (marine, tropical, alpine and volcanic). At each location test samples installations were performed allowing for up to three years of total exposure. In June 2007 the first set of samples from the marine and tropical test sites completed three years of exposure. This paper presents the results of these sample exposures.
