Compilation of coating inspection and corrosion prevention information

This content is a source of information for inspectors, engineers, managers, designers, and contractors. The descriptions and reviews I’ve listed are intended to highlight awareness of the referenced topic and to promote the use of standardized methods. I will make every effort to only provide information which is based on accepted industry resources.

Information Organized by Materials

Materials of Construction

Excerpts from standards and technical publications organized by type of material. This can be useful for researching or locating reference documents from a central source. The information listed is to provide a synopsis of the publication for general information about the topic.

Information Organized by Components

System Components

The main purpose for this information is to identify items that require protective coatings which may be shop-applied, field applied, or a combination of both. It’s crucial for corrosion planning, project coordination, and inspection planning to know the configuration of the major components and the service conditions they’re exposed to.

Information Organized by Service Conditions

Service Conditions

Industry standard descriptions and classifications of typical environments for the selection of appropriate protective coating systems. This information can be cross-referenced with System Components and Materials of Construction for corrosion planning and project development.

Reference Standards

Reference

Searchable tables with official citations and links to the individual publications organized by type of material and service topic. This provides a convenient, centralized point of reference for the standards and other publications needed for protective coatings projects and inspection tasks.

NACE CIP
