For marine infrastructure, there is the requirement for the applied paint or coating to protect steel from a salt fog test. The latest version of ISO 12944 <Paints and varnishes - Corrosion protection of steel structures by protective paint systems> gives a guideline and requirement for the material and application.
However, the end-users are still facing damage and failure on their assets, even though the material and application is fully compliant with the product specification and surface preparation requirements. Why is this?
Through a scientific study program, Advance Technology will be able to address the main technical reason for this kind of failure and develop an optimized application procedure to slow down the coating failure
