Dissecting Coating Disbondments

An examination of numerous coated pipeline segments is proposed, with characterization of the properties and microstructural features of both disbonded and well bonded regions on each segment received. The intent of the project is to answer a simple question that nobody in the industry can truthfully answer: what really causes a pipeline coating to disbond and fail?
