Author(s): Robert Gummow

The 100mV cathodic polarization criterion is being used more extensively on piping in the oil and gas industry which has prompted a discussion on the limits of its use. This paper summarizes the
technical literature on the validity of this criterion with respect to elevated temperature, sulfate reducing bacteria, mill-scale, type of metal, mixed metal structures stress corrosion cracking soil moisture and AC corrosion.
