About the Short Course

Testing of organic coatings for heavy duty corrosion protection is an intensive and time-consuming process. Therefor many attempts were done to gain early insights into the performance of coating materials even during the early state of development of new products.
Short term testing or accelerated testing is often used and delivers early results, but their correlation with real world conditions is questionable. Outdoor exposure of coated specimen would give good correlation, but it appears too time consuming in an industrial context. More sensitive testing methods and measuring techniques promise the detection of first deterioration steps and small defects, but such methods are not always easy to interpret. The presentation will give an insight into this complex subject.
