Monitoring the paint coating's breakdown is key to predicting the remaining service life of a coating. This ability will save companies significant costs over the life of an asset. One of the ways paint coatings deteriorate over time is by absorbing water, which is referred to as water uptake.
The use of advance electrochemical techniques to monitor coating water uptake can provide information regarding the performance of a coating.
In this research project, you will use electrochemical and data processing to monitor, evaluate and report on the water uptake of commercial paint coatings.
We expect this research will be published in a Q1 journal.
