AWL are pleased to be helping Strictland Tracks Ltd confirm their chosen corrosion and durability category for their painted product according to ISO 12944. This test protocol is fast becoming the chosen standard for corrosion protection of steel structures using paint systems and other coatings. AWL would like to remind prospective clients that there are 2 test regimes used as routes for qualification and certification. Use test regime 1 if UV degradation is not of major concern (i.e. underbody automotive components). Use test regime 2 if UV degradation and low temperature durability is of major concern (i.e.. any coating exposed outdoors). Test regime 2 has been the most popular choice of our clients since the latest version of ISO12944 parts 6 and 9 were added to our scope of UKAS accredited test protocols.
