Thermally Sprayed Metallic Coatings to Protect Steel Pilings: 5-Year Performance Update

National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Project 24-10, "Thermally Sprayed Metallic Coatings to Protect Steel Pilings," which was completed in 2003, developed a Thermally Sprayed Metal Coating (TSMC) Guide that provides TSMC application procedures for corrosion control on piles used in highway construction. The guide includes information on the selection, specification, and application of metal coatings for steel piles in freshwater, brackish, and seawater environments; it is contained in NCHRP Report 528, "Thermally Sprayed Metal Coatings to Protect Steel Pilings: Final Report and Guide." This Research Results Digest presents the results of NCHRP Project 24-10(02), which evaluated the performance of several TSMC types applied over steel in conformance with the aforementioned guide and immersed in seawater in a controlled, 5-year experiment.
