Standard Practice for Conducting a Patch Test to Assess Coating Compatibility
|Publication Date:||1 December 2016|
|ICS Code (Other treatments and coatings):||25.220.99|
This practice covers the procedures for assessing coating compatibility when maintenance of an in-place coating system is being contemplated. It does not address procedures for assessing the integrity of the existing coating to determine if it can be repainted, nor does it establish the compatibility of the maintenance coating system with the substrate or corrosion products. The practice is intended for use in the field. SSPC-TU 3 discusses the risks associated with the maintenance painting practice known as overcoating.
NOTE 1-Pass-Fail Criteria (for example, adhesion requirements) are not established by this practice. These should be established by the user or specifier with input from the coating manufacturer.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
