Designation G8 96 Reapproved 2019Standard Test s forCathodic Disbonding of Pipeline Coatings1This standard is issued under the fixed designation G8; the number immediately following the designation indicates the year of originaladoption or, in the case of revision, the year of last revision.Anumber in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval.Asuperscriptepsilon indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval.1. Scope1.1 These test s cover accelerated procedures forsimultaneously determining comparative characteristics of in-sulating coating systems applied to steel pipe exterior for thepurpose of preventing or mitigating corrosion that may occur inunderground service where the pipe will be in contact withinland soils and may or may not receive cathodic protection.They are intended for use with samples of coated pipe takenfrom commercial production and are applicable to suchsamples when the coating is characterized by function as anelectrical barrier.1.2 This test is intended for testing coatings sub-merged or immersed in the test solution at room temperature.When it is impractical to submerge or immerse the testspecimen, Test G95 may be considered where the testcell is cemented to the surface of the coated pipe specimen. Ifhigher temperatures are required, see Test G42.Ifaspecific test is required with no options, see Test G80.1.3 The values stated in SI units to 3 significant decimals areto be regarded as the standard. The values given in parenthesesare for ination only.1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of thesafety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is theresponsibility of the user of this standard to establish appro-priate safety, health, and environmental practices and deter-mine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.1.5 This international standard was developed in accor-dance with internationally recognized principles on standard-ization established in the Decision on Principles for theDevelopment of International Standards, Guides and Recom-mendations issued by the World Trade Organization TechnicalBarriers to Trade TBT Committee.2.

Summary of Test 3.1 Both of the two test s described subject thecoating on the test specimen to electrical stress in a highlyconductive, alkaline electrolyte. Electrical stress is obtainedeither by means of a sacrificial magnesium anode or from animpressed current system. The coating is perforated beforestarting the test.3.1.1 In A, a magnesium anode is used with noelectrical monitoring during the test period. The results aredetermined by physical examination after the test period isconcluded.3.1.2 In B, either a magnesium anode or an im-pressed current system may be used. Electrical instrumentationis provided for measuring the current in the cell circuit. Theelectrical potential is also measured, and upon conclusion ofthe test period, the test specimen is physically examined.3.1.3 In both test s physical examination is con-ducted by comparing the extent of loosened or disbondedcoating at the perforations in the immersed area with extent ofloosened or disbonded coating at a new test hole in the coatingmade in an area that was not immersed.4. Significance and Use4.1 Breaks or holidays in pipe coatings may expose the pipeto possible corrosion, since after a pipe has been installed1These test s are under the jurisdiction of ASTM Committee D01 onPaint and Related Coatings, Materials, and Applications and are the directresponsibility of Subcommittee D01.48 on Durability of Pipeline Coating andLinings.Current edition approved June 1, 2019.

Normal soil potentials as well asapplied cathodic protection potentials may cause loosening ofthe coating, beginning at holiday edges, in some cases increas-ing the apparent size of the holiday. Holidays may also becaused by such potentials. While apparently loosened coatingand cathodic holidays may not result in corrosion, this testprovides accelerated conditions for loosening to occur andtherefore gives a measure of resistance of coatings to this typeof action.4.2 The effects of the test may be uated by eitherphysical examination or monitoring the current drawn by thetest specimen and both of these two. Usually there is nocorrelation between the two s of uation but boths are significant. Physical examination consists ofassessing the effective contact of the coating with the metalsurface in terms of observed differences in the relative adhesivebond. It is usually found that the electrically stressed areapropagates from the holiday to a boundary where the loosenedcoating leaves off for the more effective contact or bondattributed to an original condition throughout the specimenbefore electrical stressing was applied.Assumptions associatedwith test results include the following4.2.1 Attempting to loosen or disbond the coating at a newtest hole made in the coating in an area that was not immersedrepresents maximum adhesion or bond as measured by thelifting technique used, and that the same lifting technique canbe used at a test hole that was immersed thereby providing ameans of comparing relative resistance to lifting.4.2.2 Any relatively lesser bonded area at the immersed testholes in the coating was caused by electrical stressing and wasnot attributable to an anomaly in the application process.Ability to resist disbondment is a desired quality on a com-parative basis, but disbondment per se in this test is notnecessarily an adverse indication. The virtue of this test is thatall dielectric type coatings now in common use will disbond tosome degree thus providing a means of comparing one coatingwith another. Bond strength is more important for properfunctioning of some coatings than others and the same mea-sured disbondment for two different coating systems may notrepresent equivalent loss of corrosion protection.4.2.3 The amount of current in the test cell is a relativeindicator of the extent of areas requiring protection againstcorrosion; however, the current density appearing in this test ismuch greater than that usually required for cathodic protectionin natural, inland soil environments.5.
