Active Coating Failure Forum

March 25, 2019

By Stephanie Marie Chizik, CoatingsPro Editor-in-Chief      

Premature coating failures are an unfortunate reality in the corrosion mitigation industry. In a perennial CORROSION favorite, Michael O’Brien of Mark 10 Resource Group and Bill Jenkins of International Paint offered a forum titled,“Coating Failures: Common and Uncommon Causes with Various Coating Types on Different Substrates.”

The session, which took place from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., covered overviews of real-life investigations regarding various substrates, including steel, iron,and concrete. This year, a new section was also added to the form: “Principles of Sample Collection for Failure Analysis.” O’Brien covered common manifestations of coating failures, specific examples of projects where premature failures occurred, and ideas on how to minimize premature coating failures.

O’Brien dedicated the session—his 19th out of the past 20 years of CORROSION—to his late wife Nancie. He offered a relaxed format, encouraging an active discussion with the approximately 60-person audience.
