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.
