Paints and varnishes - Corrosion protection of steel structures by protective paint systems - Part 2: Classification of environments
|Publication Date:||1 November 2017|
|ICS Code (Paint coating processes):||87.020|
This document deals with the classification of the principal environments to which steel structures are exposed, and the corrosivity of these environments. This document
- defines atmospheric-corrosiv
- describes different categories of environment for structures immersed in water or buried in soil, and
- gives information on some special corrosion stresses that can cause a significant increase in corrosion rate or place higher demands on the performance of the protective paint system.
The corrosion stresses associated with a particular environment or corrosivity category represent one essential parameter governing the selection of protective paint systems.
