This paper discusses some actual problems. The examples given are: case of the disappearing zinc -- This particular problem involved the coating of steel on the substructure of a series of highway bridges; The tiger stripe phenomena -- It involved the use of an inorganic zinc primer as a lining for the suppression chamber of a boiling water nuclear power generating facility; the case of the spongy membrane -- This problem involved the application of a rapid curing elastomeric polyurethane membrane, specifically developed, for use as a waterproofing membrane on highway bridge decks; the case of the mysterious crystals -- This problem was manifested as excessive tip clogging during airless spraying of high build epoxy polyamide coating; and the case of the lining failure -- This involved the application of a modified phenolic, tank lining coating to a multi-stage flash evaporation distillation unit.
