Paints and varnishes - Corrosion protection of steel structures by protective paint systems - Part 6: Laboratory performance test methods
|Publication Date:||1 January 2018|
|ICS Code (Paint coating processes):||87.020|
This document specifies laboratory test methods and test conditions for the assessment of paint systems for the corrosion protection of carbon steel structures.
The test results are intended to be considered as an aid in the selection of suitable paint systems and not as exact information for determining durability.
This document covers protective paint systems designed for application to uncoated steel, hot dip galvanized steel according to ISO 1461 and steel surfaces with thermal-sprayed metallic coating according to ISO 2063-1 and ISO 2063-2.
This document does not apply to protective paint systems for electroplated or painted steel.
The environments for corrosivity categories C2 to C5 and Im1 to Im3 defined in ISO 12944-2 are considered.
