This document specifies laboratory test methods and test conditions for the assessment of paint
systems for the corrosion protection of carbon steel structures.
The test results are intended to be considered as an aid in the selection of suitable paint systems and
not as exact information for determining durability.
This document covers protective paint systems designed for application to uncoated steel, hot dip
galvanized steel according to ISO 1461 and steel surfaces with thermal-sprayed metallic coating
according to ISO 2063-1 and ISO 2063-2.
This document does not apply to protective paint systems for electroplated or painted steel.
The environments for corrosivity categories C2 to C5 and Im1 to Im3 defined in ISO 12944-2 are
considered.

Dieser Teil von ISO 12944 legt Laborprüfverfahren und Prüfbedingungen für die Bewertung von Beschich-tungssystemen für den Korrosionsschutz von Stahlbauten fest.
Die Prüfergebnisse werden als Hilfsmittel zur Auswahl von geeigneten Beschichtungssystemen angesehen und nicht als genaue Angaben zur Bestimmung der Schutzdauer.
Dieser Teil von ISO 12944 gilt für Beschichtungssysteme für unbeschichteten Stahl, feuerverzinkten Stahl nach ISO 1461 und Stahloberflächen mit thermisch gespritzten Metallüberzügen nach ISO 2063.
Dieser Teil von ISO 12944 gilt nicht für Beschichtungssysteme für galvanisierten oder beschichteten Stahl.
Es werden die in ISO 12944 2 festgelegten Umgebungsbedingungen für die Korrosivitätskategorien C2 bis C5 und Im1 bis Im3 berücksichtigt.

Peintures et vernis - Anticorrosion des structures en acier par systèmes de peinture - Partie 6: Essais de performance en laboratoire (ISO 12944-6:2018)

ISO 12944-6:2018 spécifie des méthodes et des conditions d'essais en laboratoire pour l'évaluation des systèmes de peinture pour la protection contre la corrosion des structures en acier.
Les résultats d'essai sont destinés à être considérés comme une aide dans le choix des systèmes de peinture appropriés et non comme des informations exactes permettant de déterminer la durabilité.
ISO 12944-6:2018 couvre les systèmes de peinture anticorrosion conçus pour être appliqués sur acier non revêtu, sur acier galvanisé au trempé à chaud conformément à l'ISO 1461 et sur acier métallisé par projection thermique conformément à l'ISO 2063‑1 et l'ISO 2063‑2.
ISO 12944-6:2018 ne s'applique pas aux systèmes de peinture anticorrosion pour acier électroplaqué ou peint.
Les environnements de catégories de corrosivité C2 à C5 et Im1 à Im3 définis dans l'ISO 12944‑2 sont pris en compte.

Barve in laki - Protikorozijska zaščita jeklenih konstrukcij z zaščitnimi premaznimi sistemi - 6. del: Laboratorijske preskusne metode (ISO 12944-6:2018)

Ta dokument določa laboratorijske preskusne metode in preskusne pogoje za ocenjevanje premaznih sistemov za korozijsko zaščito jeklenih konstrukcij.
Rezultati preskusa naj bi šteli kot pomoč pri izbiri primernih zaščitnih premaznih sistemov in
ne kot natančne informacije za določitev trajnosti.
Ta dokument zajema zaščitne premazne sisteme, namenjene nanosu na nepremazano jeklo, vroče pocinkano jeklo v skladu s standardom ISO 1461 in jeklene površine s termično razpršenim kovinskim premazom v skladu s standardoma ISO 2063-1 in ISO 2063-2.
Ta dokument se ne uporablja za zaščitne premazne sisteme za galvansko ali lakirano jeklo.
Upoštevana so okolja za kategorije korozivnosti od C2 do C5 in od Im1 do Im3, določene v standardu ISO 12944-2.

Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards

bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out

through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical

committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International

organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.

ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of

electrotechnical standardization.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular the different approval criteria needed for the

different types of ISO documents should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the

editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www.iso.org/directives).

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. Details of

ISO 12944-6:2018(E)
Introduction

Unprotected steel in the atmosphere, in water and in soil is subject to corrosion that can lead to

damage. Therefore, to avoid corrosion damage, steel structures are normally protected to withstand

the corrosion stresses to which they will be subjected during the service life required of the structure.

There are different ways of protecting steel structures from corrosion. ISO 12944 (all parts) deals with

protection by paint systems and covers, in the various parts, all features that are important in achieving

adequate corrosion protection. Additional or other measures are possible but require particular

agreement between the interested parties.

In order to ensure effective corrosion protection of steel structures, owners of such structures, planners,

consultants, companies carrying out corrosion protection work, inspectors of protective coatings

and manufacturers of coating materials need to have at their disposal state-of-the-art information in

concise form on corrosion protection by paint systems. It is vital that such information is as complete as

possible, unambiguous and easily understandable to avoid difficulties and misunderstandings between

the parties concerned with the practical implementation of protection work.

ISO 12944 (all parts) is intended to give this information in the form of a series of instructions. It is

written for those who have some technical knowledge. It is also assumed that the user of ISO 12944 (all

parts) is familiar with other relevant International Standards, in particular those dealing with surface

preparation.

Although ISO 12944 (all parts) does not deal with financial and contractual questions, attention is

drawn to the fact that, because of the considerable implications of inadequate corrosion protection,

non-compliance with requirements and recommendations given in this document can result in serious

financial consequences.

ISO 12944-1 defines the overall scope of ISO 12944. It gives some basic terms and definitions and a

general introduction to the other parts of ISO 12944. Furthermore, it includes a general statement on

health, safety and environmental protection, and guidelines for using ISO 12944 (all parts) for a given

project.

This document provides a way of assessing paint systems by means of laboratory tests in order to be

able to select the most suitable.

Cyclic ageing testing according to Annex B is introduced within this document. It is currently used in C5

VH/ H and C4 VH. In case of C5 H and C4 VH the test regime including salt spray and condensation test

can still be used as alternative to cyclic ageing test. For the future, it is intended to remove salt spray

and condensation tests as alternative tests for C5 H and C4 VH.

The test results are intended to be considered as an aid in the selection of suitable paint systems and

not as exact information for determining durability.

This document covers protective paint systems designed for application to uncoated steel, hot dip

galvanized steel according to ISO 1461 and steel surfaces with thermal-sprayed metallic coating

according to ISO 2063-1 and ISO 2063-2.
