What is the correct gauge type and probe for measuring coating thickness of a super duplex stainless steel system with epoxy and polyurethane?


What is the best method for preparing newly galvanized steel to be overcoated with an epoxy system?


What can be done to prevent rust bleed in crevices when applying a zinc/epoxy/urethane system?


How do you gauge the remaining service life of an aging FBE system on a buried transmission pipeline?


Can an epoxy polyamide zinc phosphate primer be overcoated with a synthetic enamel alkyd-based topcoat? If no, why not?


What would be a reasonable service life for a two-coat, zinc-rich epoxy/epoxy mastic system, about 200-250 microns, in a marine environment? What evidence is there from the field?


What are the significant performance differences between an inorganic zinc primer (ethyl silicate) and an organic zinc primer (epoxy), given the same application and exposure conditions?


Why would a pull-off adhesion test give a high value (no failure) for a solventless epoxy that later showed poor adhesion in service?


What is the effect of the wind-chill factor on the curing of epoxy and PU when temperatures are similar?


What is the maximum temperature that an epoxy powder coating can resist when applied on steel substrate?


What causes amine blush in epoxy topcoats?


What causes bubbling or cratering of epoxy intermediate coat when applied over epoxy zinc-rich primer?


On guardrails on a marine wharf, grating panels consisting of mild steel bars about 1/8-inch by 1-inch on a 2-inch-square grid were painted with a three-coat zinc/epoxy/urethane system. Inspectors are finding numerous pinholes in the finish coat along the inside corners of the grating where the 1-inch-thick bars meet at a 90-degree angle. These pinholes were not noticed in the zinc or epoxy coats, but the final coat's visual inspection is more detailed. What is the likely cause of the pinholing, and what could be done to prevent it on future applications? Also, what should the disposition of the parts with pinholes be, as in, repair, accept as is, reblast and recoat, or an alternative?


What is the recommended coating system and procedure for repairing deteriorated inorganic zinc/epoxy/polyurethane 3-coat systems? Does the repair system or procedure vary with the degree of deterioration and if so, how?


If an atmospheric coating system of a zinc-rich epoxy, epoxy mid coat and polyurethane color topcoat has properly cured with no visual defects, should I be worried if the thickness of any coat exceeds any specified maximum?


Where would you use epoxy and cementitious intumescent coatings?


How does a lower-metallic-content zinc-rich epoxy affect the life of a paint system?
