RE: QUERY: SSPC Definitions

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I guess I was hoping for a little more, like surface appearance, etc.

I realize I can buy these off the SSPC webiste (which says that it is no
longer the Structural Steel Painting Council, but is now SSPC: The Society
for Protective Coatings. I wonder why they just didn't shorten the name to
"SPC"?)

Bill,

You can also check out the following web page for definitions of various
surface preparation standards:

http://www.corrosion.com/prep.html

It contains similar definitions to those provided by Pat Symons below.
