Which is the ideal test method (ASTM/ ISO) to test the flexibility of a lining product (organic coating) to be applied on concrete storage tanks to store brine water?


How can I determine the cleanliness of stainless steel for painting after blast cleaning?


Should pull-off adhesion tests be carried out on a zinc-rich primer alone, or only on a complete system?


What is the best way to remedy over-thickness of a topcoat after it has dried and cured?


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


How do concrete admixtures such as hardeners and anti-dust compounds affect coating adhesion? What can be done to minimize negative effects?


In reviewing the testing data for adhesion, some manufacturers indicate ASTM D4541 results while others show ASTM C3359 results. Is it possible to compare one against the other? For example, does 1037 psi provide better adhesion than 4A?

Where are errors most likely to occur when measuring dry film thickness on steel, and how can they be avoided?


For coatings with a high-solids content (95 percent or more), what kinds of defects, such as holidays or micropores, are possible or likely to occur in the applied film? How can these be prevented or remedied?


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


How do you accurately measure the adhesion of inorganic zinc?


How does the concave or convex curvature of a surface affect the dry film thickness reading?


In what circumstances is third-party inspection recommended for commercial coating work?


How does the concave or convex curvature of a surface affect the dry film thickness reading?


How do you adequately assess the adhesion of a newly applied coating?
