Product Type: Cathodic Disbondment Testing
The disbondment test is a simple way of assessing the effectiveness of the bond between the protective coating and the metal structure that it is designed to preserve.
Steel structures such as pipes and tanks that are submerged are usually protected by coatings bonded to its surface and by cathodic protection. Many pipelines are protected by ICCP (Impressed Current Cathodic Protection) as are large Boats and Ships. Any protective coating using this kind of protection will need to be evaluated for Cathodic Disbondment.
There are a number of International Standards that define the Disbondment test, however the use of a Reference Electrode is common to all.*
EDT manufacture and supply all types for the Cathodic Disbondment test.
