A coating in which the binder or vehicle is a combination of coal tar with a polyurethane resin.
A number of coats separately applied in a predetermined order at suitable intervals to allow for drying or curing.
A liquid, liquefiable, or mastic composition that has been converted to a solid protective, decorative, or functional adherent film after application in a thin layer. A coating is an electrical insulating covering applied to a metal surface as passive protection against external corrosion.
Two or more paints or varnishes that can be mixed without producing any undesirable effects such as precipitation, coagulation, or gelling are said to be compatible. Different coats of paint that can be associated in a painting system or other coating systems without producing undesirable effects are also compatible.

Field adhesion testing
Test the adhesion of the coatings after application.
Finish coat (topcoat)
The final coat in a painting system.
The impingement of an intensely hot flame to the surface of structural steel, resulting in the removal of mill scale and the dehydration of any remaining rust, leaving the surface in a condition suitable for wire brushing, followed by the immediate application of paint.
Thermal spraying in which coating material is fed into an oxyfuel gas flame, where it is melted.
Material used during welding, brazing, or braze welding to clean the surfaces of joints, prevent atmospheric oxidation, and to reduce impurities.
The application of a coating of zinc to steel by a variety of methods.
To produce a zinc-iron alloy coating on iron or steel by keeping the coating molten after hot-dip galvanizing until the zinc alloys completely with the base metal.
A discontinuity in a coating (such as porosity, cracks, etc.) that allows areas of base metal to be exposed to any corrosive environment that contacts the coated surface.

Leakage or coating resistance
Leakage resistance of pipe or resistance of pipe radially to remote earth.
Includes hand cleaning and power tool cleaning.
The person, firm, or corporation that manufactures and provides the coatings under the provisions of relevant standard.
Application of a spray coat of metal (usually zinc or aluminum) onto a prepared surface.
One or more layer of metal on a steel base (base material).
Mill scale is the term used for the surface oxides produced during hot rolling of steel. It breaks and flakes when the steel is flexed and paint applied over it may fail prematurely.
Being or composed of hydrocarbons or their derivatives, or matter of plant or animal origin.
Any pigmented liquid, liquifiable, or mastic composition designed for application to a substrate in a thin layer that is converted to an opaque solid film after application. Used for protection, decoration, or identification, or to serve some other function.
A coating (usually green) that forms on the surface of metals, such as copper and copper alloys, exposed to the atmosphere.
Forming an adherent phosphate coating on a metal by immersion in a suitable aqueous phosphate solution.
Pickle / pickling
A form of chemical and electrolytic removal or loosening of mill scale and corrosion products from the surface of a metal in a chemical solution (usually acidic). Electrolytic pickling can be anodic or cathodic, depending on the polarization of metal in the solution.
A solution, usually acid, used to remove mill scale or other corrosion products from a metal.
Deposition on critical areas of metal coatings resistant to wear and abrasion, by means of a high-velocity, high-temperature ionized inert gas jet.
