NPFC - MIL-STD-1568
MATERIALS AND PROCESSES FOR CORROSION PREVENTION AND CONTROL IN AEROSPACE WEAPONS SYSTEMS
|Publication Date:||28 February 1989|
This standard establishes the requirements for materials, processes and techniques, and identifies the tasks required to implement an effective corrosion prevention and control program during the conceptual, validation, development and production phases of aerospace weapon systems. The intent is to minimize life cycle cost due to corrosion and to obtain improved reliability.
This standard is applicable for use by all Air Force procuring activities and their respective contractors involved in the design and procurement of aerospace weapon systems. The detailed corrosion prevention and control plan and the finish specification applies to all elements of aerospace weapon systems, including spares. Materials and Processes required for corrosion prevention and control in support equipment are covered in MIL-STD-808. Materials and Process Requirements for Air Force Weapon Systems are covered in MIL-STD-1587. This standard when used in conjunction with MIL-STD-808 and MIL-STD-1587 will result in reliable aerospace systems having a good balance between acquisition costs and life cycle cost. The requirement for the establishment of a corrosion prevention advisory board shall pertain to major aerospace systems approved for Air Force use as defined by AFR 800-2, Acquisition Program Management.

This standard is to provide a mechanism for implementation of sound materials selection practices and finish treatments during the design, development, production and operational cycles of the aerospace weapon systems. This standard defines requirements to insure establishment and implementation of a corrosion prevention advisory board (where applicable), a corrosion prevention and control plan and its accompanying finish specification as directed in Section 4. The corrosion prevention and control plan will dictate the organization of the boards, their basic duties, operating procedures, and the finish philosophies used in the systems. The finish specification will therefore be required to specify the detailed finish and coating systems to be used on the respective aerospace weapons system in accordance with the finish philosophies as approved in the corrosion prevention and control plan. This standard is derived from experience gained on protection of aerospace weapons systems against corrosion by the military services and industry. It represents technical guidance and requirements for incorporation in the corrosion prevention and control plan and finish specification.
This standard is intended to provide Air Force Systems Program Offices with a procurement document that provides timely and comprehensive consideration during systems design of corrosion prevention and control processes and of the lessons learned over the years from operational systems worldwide. System reliability and maintainability will be significantly improved by the use of this standard. It should be used in conjunction with MIL-STD-1587 in selection of materials and processes which will meet the requirements of the systems being designed in accordance with MIL-STD-1530.
