Standard Test Method for Cathodic Disbondment Test of Pipeline Coatings (Attached Cell Method)
|Publication Date:||1 July 2007|
|ICS Code (Other pipeline components):||23.040.99|
This test method covers accelerated procedures for simultaneously determining comparative characteristics of coating systems applied to steep pipe exterior for the purpose of preventing or mitigating corrosion that may occur in underground service where the pipe will be in contact with natural soils and will receive cathodic protection. They are intended for use with samples of coated pipe taken from commercial production and are applicable to such samples when the coating is characterized by function as an electrical barrier.
This test method is intended to facilitate testing of coatings where the test cell is cemented to the surface of the coated pipe specimen. This is appropriate when it is impractical to submerge or immerse the test specimen as required by Test Methods G 8, G 42, or G 80. Coating sample configuration such as flat plate and small diameter pipe may be used, provided that the test procedure remains unchanged.2
This test method allows options that must be identified in the report.
