This article reports on the response of a commercially available self-healing epoxy coating to damage designed to simulate microcracking typically observed in protective coatings in the field.
The Southwest Research Institute has been awarded a $1.3-million project to build a robotic inspection system designed specifically to inspect the bottoms of massive underground double-shell tanks.
When Eastman Chemical opted for a new urethane coating system on tanks at the front of its flagship plant, not just any applicator could do. The client needed expertise in access, aesthetics, and containment for removal of the prior lead-based coating.
To keep you updated on the coronavirus pandemic, MP is compiling this regular guide of news and interviews as it pertains to the corrosion industry and its path forward in the era of COVID-19.
The ROVs measure metal thickness, paint thickness, and cathodic protection (CP) voltage—a corrosion prevention technique the Navy uses that charges the hull at a certain voltage to slow down corrosion.
The nominating period is now open for next year’s Corrosion Innovation of the Year Awards, with winners recognized in a wide range of categories related to corrosion prevention and mitigation.
The electrochemical corrosion behavior at different current densities was studied by using the potentiodynamic polarization and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy tests in combination with scanning electron microscopy.
