We were required to do an adhesion test for a client on about 9 vessels. All vessels were new construction and the coating system was the standard IOZ, Epoxy, Polyurethane 3 coat system. The products specified have been used for various projects for the same client before. We had to prepare 3 test panels of the same material the vessels were constructed of and apply the coating system in steps. Panel 1 just IOZ. Panel 2 IOZ and Epoxy. Panel 3 all coats of the system. Each panel needed to have a minimum pull of of about 725 psi. Has anyone ever done anything like this on new construction?

I am in similar situation. But, I’m going to perform adhesion test by ASTM D3359 method B in the Panel 1 (only IOZ) and ASTM D3359 method A and ASTM 6677 in panel 2 (IOZ+Epoxy) and panel 3 (IOZ+Epoxy+Polyurethane). It's also new construction. I'd like to know if anyone has a done this before.
