The coating was developed to perform in corrosive environments, commonly found in water storage tanks, where blistering occurs through four mechanisms: osmotic blistering due to substrate surface contamination; osmotic blistering due to water soluble species within the paint film itself; due to cathodic disbondment; and the imposition of a temperature gradient across the paint film.
The subsequent osmotic influx of water through the film can lead to delamination and blistering of the film.
