Abstract
From November 2021 to May 2022, a corrosion-prevention experiment was conducted at the Marine Corps base in Twentynine Palms, California. The experiment consisted of 21 bare steel coupons exposed to the desert environment and 30 bare steel coupons subjected to accelerated testing. Of the 21 test coupons, three were left untreated to act as a control group, six were coated with CorrosionX, six were coated with Carwell CP-90, and six were coated with Fluid Film. Of the 30 test coupons subjected to accelerated aging, 10 were coated with CorrosionX, 10 were coated with Carwell CP 90, and 10 were coated with Fluid Film. After the experiment was finished, the test coupons were analyzed by the analysis of variance statistical method. The results of the test suggested CorrosionX or Fluid Film was effective in slowing corrosion. Due to a small sample size, a relatively short experimental period, and unusual weather, however, further testing is recommended.
