    Revision of D5162 - 08 Standard Practice for Discontinuity (Holiday) Testing of Nonconductive Protective Coating on Metallic Substrates

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D5162 - 15

    Developed by Subcommittee: D01.46 | Committee D01 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    Some minor changes have been made to update the Practice with particular reference to the NACE documents, which have been changed from RPs to SPs. A reference to a relevant ISO standard has been added. This standard uses a similar test method but has an inspection plan and acceptance criteria.
