PAINTING OF COLD AND WET STEEL SURFACES

Report on experimental program related to studies of corrosion resistance of paint systems. It was shown that application of primers and paint systems in cold weather tended to result in a slightly higher rate of rusting than at normal temperatures. Condensation, moisture, and ice were more harmful than low temperature alone on the performance of both primers and finish coats. The type of surface-partially rusted or blast-cleaned-and the type of formulation ultimately determined the durability of the primer and of the paint system in these adverse conditions of painting cold and wet steel. Description of test procedure is included. Test results are tabulated.
