REAFFIRMATION. This AMPP standard test method specifies procedures to evaluate cathodic disbondment resistance of the steel structure coating systems under cathodic protection, such as buried or submerged pipeline and tank linings. The standard covers all test specimen geometries and test temperatures. This standard also takes into consideration all test parameters with the goal of the standard to be used during the selection of protective coating systems for use under cathodic protection. This test method is intended for use by facility owners, coating applicators, and coating manufacturers.
This coating material standard is intended primarily for use by coating manufacturers, specifiers, and applicators. It contains requirements for the formulation of the coating material as well as requirements for material properties of the formulated coating and instructions for proper application of the coating. The coating is intended for use in environments that are not exposed to ultraviolet light. Its use may be restricted in some areas due to its coal tar content.
