FORUM ON “TOWARDS POLYMERIC COATING FINGERPRINTING” V
Forum no.5 will present the progress report of Phase 3 (2018-2020) which include the study of FTIR analysis on more coating products such as Inorganic Zinc Coating, Epoxy-Zinc Coating, High Solids Epoxy Coating, Polyurethane Coating, Glass Flake Polyester Coating and Silicone-Aluminium Coating plus comparison of aged (1-2 years old) products.
Phase 1 (2013-2014) initiated the application of Fourier-Transform InfraRed (FTIR) Spectroscopy as a simple and reliable tool for the study of reproducibility (i.e. to fingerprint) of the epoxy coatings (Resin and Hardener). The fingerprinting regions of FTIR for epoxy resin and hardener were identified and the confidence level of acceptance for QA & QC control was proposed at ≥ 90.0%. These were presented in Forums 1 & 2.
Phase 2 (2015-2016) involved the appreciation of the root causes of coating failures throughout the world and the adoption of the Coating Fingerprinting initiative by the Malaysian Oil & Gas Operators as one useful QA/QC tool for ensuring coating quality. It also led to the establishment of the 1-day Foundation Course on Coating Fingerprinting and the 2-day Certification Course for Coating Fingerprint Quality Controller. These were presented in Forums 3 & 4.
