A Globally Recognised Standard For Corrosion Protection

ISO 12944 has the best practices in protecting structural steel surfaces. It all starts by ‘Selecting the environment’ and ‘Selecting the lifespan’ to pick out your desired durability.

Corrosivity Category EXTERIOR INTERIOR
Very low
- Heated buildings with clean atmospheres, e.g. offices, shops, schools, hotels
Atmospheres with low level of pollution:
mostly rural areas
Unheated buildings where condensation can occur, e.g. depots, sports halls
Urban and industrial atmospheres, moderate sulfur dioxide pollution; coastal areas with low salinity Production rooms with high humidity and some air pollution, e.g. food-processing plants, laundries, breweries, dairies
Industrial areas and coastal areas with moderate salinity Chemical plants, swimming pools, coastal ships and boatyards
Very High
Industrial areas with high humidity and aggressive atmosphere and coastal areas with high salinity Buildings or areas with almost permanentcondensation and with high pollution
Offshore areas with high salinity and industrial areas with extreme humidity and aggressive atmosphere and subtropical and tropical atmospheres Industrial areas with extreme humidity and aggressive atmosphere

Note: Corrosivity categories can also be estimated by considering the combined effect of the following environment factors: yearly time of wetness, yearly mean concentration of sulfur dioxide and yearly mean deposition of chloride (see ISO 9223). The loss values used for the corrosivity categories are identical to those given in ISO 9223.


IM1 Fresh water River installations, hydro-electronic power plants
IM2 Sea or brackish water Immersed structures without cathodic protection(e.g. harbour areas with structures like sluice gates, locks or jetties)
IM3 Soil Buried tanks, steel piles, steel pipes
IM4 Sea or brackish water Immersed structures with cathodic protection(e.g. offshore structures)

Note: For corrosivity category IM1 and IM3, cathodic protection can be used with a paint system tested accordingly

Up to 7 years
7 to 15 years
15 to 25 years
Very high
More than 25 years

Nippon Paint protective coatings are a type of coating that is applied to surfaces to protect against corrosion, rust, and other environmental factors that can weaken structures, create potential safety hazards, and result in high maintenance costs.

Nippon Paint protective coatings include Conventional Protective Coatings (single-pack coatings), Heavy-Duty Protective Coatings (2-pack coatings), Heat Resistance Coatings, and Chemical Resistance Coatings.

Nippon Paint protective coatings offer several benefits, such as corrosion resistance, chemical resistance, UV resistance, weathering resistance, and heat resistance for various environments, including immersion services, non-immersion, and even food-safe tank lining.

Nippon Paint protective coatings are suitable for many surfaces but are primarily applied to steel surfaces, such as structural steel, storage tanks (both internal and external), pipes, piles, vessels, and bridges.

The lifespan of a protective coating depends on several factors, such as the type of coating, the surface it is applied to, and the environment it is exposed to. Generally, protective coatings can last anywhere from a few years to several decades.

There are several methods for steel surface preparation, including solvent cleaning to remove wax, oil, and grease; power tool or wire brushing; and abrasive sandblasting to create a suitable surface profile (recommended 50 – 100 microns). For more information on suitable surface preparation, please refer to the Technical Data Sheet (TDS) or consult with our experts at faq 1-800-88-2663, or drop a note at https://professional.nipponpaint.com.my/contact-us.

In some cases, protective coatings can be applied over an existing coating if the surface is properly prepared. However, it is best to consult with a professional to determine if this is a suitable option.

The right protective coating depends on the type of surface, the environment it is exposed to, and the desired level of protection. For more information, please consult our experts at 1-800-88-2663, or drop a note at https://professional.nipponpaint.com.my/contact-us.

Nippon Paint protective coatings can be applied using various methods, including spraying (air spray and airless spray), brushing, and rolling. The application method will depend on the thickness, surface area, finishing of the surface being coated, the coating system, and the type of project (i.e., new construction or maintenance).

The types of protective coatings include acrylic, alkyd, epoxy, polyurethane, silicone coatings, and many more.
