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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Information for inspection planning and understanding the inspection process. Knowing the content of the NACE Coating Inspector Program allows project stake holders seeking to hire consultants, or train staff, get a better understanding of coating inspection principles. Course details can be found on NACE.org/education/.
Accurate information is vital to the success of all coating projects, from the planning stage of new construction through maintenance of existing facilities. Knowledge and understanding of the referenced publications will provide a foundation for quality management and inspection planning.
The content of reference standards not only gives methods, procedures, and acceptance criteria, but is also a valuable source of knowledge about the covered subject matter. SWPCI.com is a central location to research and learn about technical publications and resources that are available for coating inspection and related fields.
