Revision Date: July 08, 2013
Updated On: July 10, 2013
Editorial Change:
3.1 Holidays in pipeline coatings may be repaired by circumferential wrapping with a suitable pipe wrap tape. However, this technique is not always practicable and patching may be required. The effectiveness of a patch material depends upon its adhesion to the original pipeline coating to effect sealing.

3.2 The results of this accelerated test have been found to yield comparative data useful for the selection of patching materials. The user is cautioned against the use of this method for absolute material properties characterization.

3.3 This procedure provides an accelerated method by exposing the patch to a severe radius of curvature on small-diameter pipe. The specimen is also exposed to a stress voltage in the presence of a highly conductive electrolyte.
