Studies for paint coatings and rubber linings are part of the operational reliability research of seawater piping systems. Failure analyses and immersion tests of seawater pipe coatings were made in order to determine the lifetime limiting factors. Based on the operational experience as well as coating and corrosion experience quality control guidelines for coating were developed. Cleanliness and carefulness are extremely important in the coating process. Short lifetime of the pipe material without coating makes it important to control the quality of the coating and the pipe within certain intervals. Draft of the guidelines for the repair of the coating of the used pipes were also given.
