55%Al-Zn alloy coated steel sheets pre-treated with 5% Fe (NO3)3 + 15% H3PO4 solution, coated with acrylic (AC), alkyd (AQ), vinyl (VL), solvent-based epoxy (ES) or waterborne epoxy (EA) corrosion-inhibiting primers + a barrier topcoat alkyd paint, and exposed to different media were studied. Exposure conditions included salt spray or continuous immersion in solutions containing chloride or sulphate ions. The state of the exposed samples was evaluated by visual inspections, standardized physicochemical tests and electrochemical impedance (EIS) measurements. Their results allowed inferring that: 1) under immersion conditions, the best performance was offered by the ES samples; 2) most of the painting systems performed satisfactorily during their exposure to the salt spray chamber; and 3) the correlation between them permitted to explain some problems arising in service and opened the door to extend the useful life by adjusting the painting system formulation.
