Purpose

The purpose of this Standard is to describe the general corrosion protection requirements applicable to the surface treatment and finishing of space flight hardware. This Standard contains the minimum requirements necessary to qualify materials and processes for corrosion control of space flight hardware. Additional testing may be required to meet the requirements for materials and processes used in space flight hardware systems contained in NASA-STD-6016, Standard Materials and Processes Requirements for Spacecraft.

Materials and processes used in interfacing ground support equipment, test equipment, hardware processing equipment, hardware packaging, and hardware shipment are to be controlled to prevent damage to or contamination of flight hardware.

Applicability

This Standard is applicable to all National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) space flight hardware, including launch vehicles.

This Standard is approved for use by NASA Headquarters and NASA Centers, including Component Facilities and Technical and Service Support Centers, and may be cited in contract, program, and other Agency documents as a technical requirement. This Standard may also apply to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory or to other contractors, grant recipients, or parties to agreements only to the extent specified or referenced in their contracts, grants, or agreements.

Requirements are numbered and indicated by the word "shall." Explanatory or guidance text is indicated in italics beginning in section 4.

a. Programs shall apply these controls to program/project hardware. Programs, projects, and elements are responsible for flowing requirements down to contractors, subcontractors, and the lowest component-level suppliers.

b. Programs shall be responsible for demonstrating compliance with these requirements.
