The IICL Technology Committee and the Container Owners Association have published guidelines for a standard water test procedure, to assist quality control inspectors assess the application of water-based paints on the interior of containers
The procedures were created for new build containers in container factories. The use of water and the high humidity created by the test will help to expose areas where the paint layers have not dried sufficiently becoming vulnerable to flash rust.
In parallel, the test will assist to show and highlight voids, pinholes, cracks and low dry film thickness areas
