Revision Date: July 08, 2013

Editorial Change:
 
4.1 The exposed metal surfaces at joints, fittings, and damaged areas in an otherwise coated pipeline will be subjected to corrosion if allowed to come in contact with the soil environment. The performance of joint and patching materials designed to function as protective coverings will depend upon such factors as the ability of the material to bond to both the pipe coating and exposed metal surfaces, the integrity of the moisture seal at lapped joints, and the water absorption characteristics of the joint material.

4.2 The existence of substantial leakage current through the coating joint, patch, or fitting is reliable evidence that the material has suffered a significant decrease in its performance as a protective barrier. In a similar manner, measured changes in joint capacitance and dissipation factor are useful because they are related to the water absorption rate of the joint material. Water permeating an insulating barrier increases its capacitance and its progress can be measured through the use of a suitable impedance bridge.
