“We are getting all of our products CSA and UL approved. One of the tests that we must meet is a corrosion test for hydrogen sulfide and sulphur dioxide – carbon dioxide. The paint that we use is TGIC polyester powder. Is there a general specification out there that will tell the certification laboratory about the performance of this powder paint with respect to these chemicals?”


“Each powder coating formulation offers a different resistance to corrosion. The coating formulator (manufacturer) may be able to tell you what the corrosion resistance is for your particular powder. However, since you are testing this performance using specific chemical agents, the coating formulator may have to perform the same tests with these agents in order to determine the actual performance. It is not unusual to empirically test powders for determining their performance.”
