Overview

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.

Research activities

In this research project, you will use electrochemical and data processing to monitor, evaluate and report on the water uptake of commercial paint coatings.

Outcomes

We expect this research will be published in a Q1 journal.

Skills and experience

To be considered for this project, you should have chemical and electrical knowledge.
