What is the most important factor to determine in a failure investigation and why is it so?


What coating problems are likely in storage tanks that have dissimilar metal sides and floors?


How can it be determined if moisture within a CMU wall is causing repeated coating failure? If so, can the source of moisture entry be accurately identified for correction?

How does rapid depressurization affect lining performance in vessels and line pipe, and how can you identify any failure that might result?


Does the presence of non-burst blisters in a coating system always mean that the coating requires replacement?


What is the Cold Wall Effect? Can it cause premature coating failure and, if so, how do I prevent it?


During a week of heavy rain, we painted the interior of a heated concrete building. The paint blistered badly a week later on the walls with an outside exposure. What’s the best way to remove the coating, prepare the surface, and recoat to prevent future blistering?


During a week of heavy rain, we painted the interior walls of a heated concrete building. On the interior of walls that had an outside exposure, the paint blistered badly a week after the rain subsided. Could the rain have caused the blistering and, if so, how?

What causes blistering/crater formation in freshly applied polyurethane topcoats, and how can this be avoided?


How can it be determined if moisture within a CMU wall is causing repeated coating failure? If so, can the source of moisture entry be accurately identified for correction?


Under what conditions should small-diameter blisters (<1.5 inches) in a water tank lining be repaired/repainted? Should the blisters be broken and the substrate examined?
