By means of electrochemical impedance spectroscopy(EIS),the electrochemical behaviors of organic coating/metal substrate were studied under simulated deep sea environment in the laboratory.Effects of seawater pressure on the transportation behavior of water through coating and the protective performance of coating were analyzed.The experimental results showed that,compared to normal pressured seawater,there were different impedance characteristics of coating in 3.5 MPa pressured seawater.The main observations were that high seawater pressure accelerated the process of water uptake and invalidation of coating,increased water absorption,and lowered the anti-corrosion property of coating.
