Abstract Aircraft protective coatings are primarily used to protect structural elements from a corrosive environment. The durability of these coatings is a primary concern, since environmental degradation from moisture, high temperature, ultraviolet radiation and chemical factors can significantly reduce the effective service lifetime of paints and sealants. The magnitude of applied loads and the effect of load history are also likely to be contributors to the process of coating degradation. This aspect of work so far has received little attention in the literature. This paper describes the key characteristics of coatings at aircraft joints.
