This report presents the results of research undertaken to assess the anticorrosion performance of both proprietary and in-house formulated non-chromate containing primers. Four main test regimes were employed for the assessment: adhesion testing, natural weathering, accelerated corrosion testing (ECCA tests) and electrochemical testing. The results obtained were compared to determine the relative aggressiveness of each test method. Current electrochemical techniques have been evaluated and their usefulness in determining the protective properties of organic coatings has been validated. The results from the accelerated corrosion tests and the electrochemical tests have been compared to determine the correlation between the two tests.
