This standard is issued under the fixed designation D ; the number 1 This practice is under the jurisdiction of ASTM Committee D01 on Paint and. Related. In nearly the same timeframe, the version of ASTM D, “Standard Practice for Nondestructive Measurement of Dry Film Thickness of. ASTM D describes three operational steps that must be performed prior to coating thickness measurement to help assure the reliability of.

If a one-point verification procedure is adopted, the coated standard should be selected based on the intended range of use. However, because Type 1 gages are non-linear, one cannot assume a linear mil-for-mil correction value across the full range of the gage.
The number of spot measurements along the edge will vary, depending on the total length of the coated edge. Acceptability of Gage Readings, Spot Measurements, and Area Measurements While individual gage readings that are dd7091 high or low and cannot be repeated consistently can be discarded, there are limitations on the thickness values representing the spot measurements the average of three gage readings.
Contained a minimum gage accuracy requirement to qualify for use. Special attention will be given in the article to how PA 2 7d091 the required number of coating thickness measurements; the acceptability of gage readings, spot measurements, and area measurements; nonconforming thickness; measuring DFT on coated edges; and measuring DFT on r7091 exteriors. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
The user of this equipment must be knowledgeable in the proper operation of these devices, including methods for verifying the accuracy of the equipment prior to, during and after use as well as measurement procedures. The actual minimum and maximum spot r7091 area thickness requirements are shown in Figure 12 for each of the five restriction levels.
SSPC-PA 2 has undergone significant changes in an attempt to make it more complete; more in concert with ASTM D; easier to use in the shop and field; and more flexible in providing the specifier with options for coating thickness restrictions based on the type asmt structure, the coatings to be applied, and the service environment.
Please email me back with price and where to purchase standards on paint thickness. The following general guidance is provided for measuring coating thickness on larger surfaces.
Measuring Dry Film Coating Thickness According to SSPC-PA 2
asm Dry film thickness gages are calibrated by the equipment manufacturer, its authorized agent, or an accredited calibration laboratory under controlled conditions. I am no doubt leaving out other bells and whistles, but my point is that while we are able to do a lot with the readings obtained, measuring DFT involves four or five basic steps.
A one-point or two-point accuracy verification procedure can be performed as described earlier for Type 1 gages. The magnetic force of attraction to the steel substrate beneath the coating is opposed by a spring or coil. Special tensioned ring s7091 are also available. We have allowed technology to make it more complex, yet easier.
For these gages, a permanent magnet is brought into direct asstm with the coated surface. December 28, at 6: Level 1 is the most restrictive and does not allow for any deviation of spot or area measurements from the asstm minimum and maximum thickness, while Level 5 is the least restrictive. Your email address will not be published. The user should consult the manufacturers instructions regarding the use of coating thickness gages on these types of coatings.

Verifying accuracy of Type 2 gage on a certified coated standard. A superscript epsilon e indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval. For these gages, a permanent magnet is brought into direct contact with the coated surface. 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. However, the reference standard should contain the stated value and the degree of accuracy.
SSPC-PA 2 contains three definitions that are critical to understanding this next area of discussion. Use of the gage outside of this range may generate false coating thickness measurements and may damage the instrument. Unless explicitly permitted by the gage manufacturer, shims certified or measured are not permitted for verification of accuracy of Type 1 gages.

Appendix 9 non-mandatory was created: Inspection Instruments Pipeline Coatings — Volume 2: No other units of measurement are included in this standard. The force necessary to pull the magnet from the surface is measured and converted to coating thickness, which is displayed on a scale on the gage. Less force is required to remove the x7091 from a thick coating, while more force is required to remove the magnet from a thinner one.
The number of areas to measure is dependent on the size of the structure or part. This will determine whether the d0791 is operating correctly 3. These steps are 1 gage calibration, 2 verification of gage accuracy and 3 gage adjustment.
The total number of spot and area measurements is based on the total square footage of pipe on d0791 cart or rack. It describes the methods and recommended frequency for verifying the accuracy of gages and for adjusting astj equipment and lists the reporting recommendations. For example, if the intended use is between 4 and 6 mils, then a five-mil coated standard is appropriate.
The user should consult the manufacturers instructions regarding the use of coating thickness gages on these types of coatings.

First, once the surface is coated for example, with a primeran uncoated surface may no longer be available for subsequent gage adjustments, so the user may want to have a similar aatm surface prepared and reserved for future gage adjustments on a given project. All definitions related to gage calibration, accuracy and adjustment are incorporated by reference in ASTM D Unusually high or low gage readings that cannot be repeated consistently are discarded.
As a result, obtaining single-point measurements may not d0791 represent the actual coating system thickness.
