Abstract

The aim of this study is to evaluate the ability of three nondestructive techniques—ultrasound, thermography and eddy current—for the detection of defects that can occur in metallic substrate with anticorrosive coating and compare the results regarding the advantages and disadvantages of each one of these inspection techniques. For this study, samples were made from a metallic substrate in which a composite anticorrosive coating and two types of defects were introduced: localized corrosion (defects of different geometries and depths inserted into the metallic substrate) and adhesion failure between the coating and the substrate. According to the results, all three techniques showed to be able to detect defects simulating localized corrosion on the substrate. However, the adhesion failure was only effectively detected by thermography and ultrasound and a high correlation between these two techniques was observed.
