Finishes for Metals. Paintability of Galvanized Steel, Corrosion Resistance of Metallized Coatings.
Building Research Inst., Inc., Washington, DC.
Two papers are presented. The first, "Report of the AISI Research Project on the Paintability of Galvanized Steel," was a project aimed at determining optimum procedures for painting bright-spangled galvanized sheet steel products using three classes of trade sales paints--metallic zinc-dust, portland cement-in-oil, and water base emulsion paints. Both treated and untreated galvanized stell were tested. Test panels were exposed to three types of atmospheric environments, and results are given. The second paper, "Corrosion Resistance of Metalized Coatings", considers corrosion protection of aluminum and zinc coatings applied to low-carbon steel. Panels coated with these metals were exposed to urban, industrial, and marine environments over a nine year period. Thicknesses of coating, effect of methods of steel preparation and effect of seal coats were studied. (RH)
