In order to make a quantitative evaluation of degradation in coatings by the electrochemical impedance spectroscopy method, it is necessary to be able to understand the relationship between each coating method and coatings' degradation phenomena and the behavior of the impedance. In this research, using test pieces for different coating methods, salt slay test, sunshine weather meter test and combined cyclic corrosion test were performed, and evaluations were made by means of the electrochemical impedance spectroscopy method and surface observations. As a result, though it was difficult to determine the corrosion resistance from the impedance prior to the test, from impedance measurements performed over time, it was found that it was possible to detect the presence of cracks and blistering. As a simple method of determining the degradation, investigations were performed observing the time rate of change of the impedance. From variations in the time rate of change of impedance, it was found that it would be possible unambiguously to detect degradation regardless of the coating method employed. © 2015, Japan Society of Corrosion Engineering.
