New in 2005. Evaluates the performance characteristics of organic-based conductive coating anode materials applied to steel-reinforced concrete surfaces for the purpose of supplying cathodic protection current to the embedded steel. Provides methods to test the durability of the organic conductive coating anode under defined laboratory conditions, i.e., conditions present when current discharges from the anode as it would in a working cathodic protection system. Tests consist of resistivity, adhesion, coating appearance, anode life, and water vapor permeation tests. Key words: adhesion, cathodic protection, coating appearance, coating application, electrochemical test, organic-based conductive coating, resistivity, test panel, water vapor permeation.
