ISO 12944-9 : 2018 replaces ISO 20340 : 2009

Manufacturers of high durability paint systems should be aware that the laboratory performance test for off-shore and related structures has been replaced by ISO 12944-9 : 2018. There are no changes to the test cycle but the long exposure period of 4200 hours may be reduced when systems are tested alongside other laboratory performance tests in accordance with ISO 12944-6. These may include water condensation, water or chemical immersion and neutral salt spray testing depending on the durability rating required.
