Using electrochemical impedance spectroscopy method, the performance of vinyl acrylic coating containing polyaniline on steel in 0.1N HCl, 3% NaCl and cement extract (pH 13.0) has been evaluated. The resistance of the paint coating in all the media has been found to decrease initially from 108 to 106 cm2. On subsequent exposure to the aqueous media, the resistance of the coating has been found to increase steadily. Further, the open circuit potential values have been found to shift in active direction initially and then move in noble direction with longer immersion period due to the passivating effect of polyaniline pigment.
