This specification defines the size composition and surface preparation requirements for the preparation of test samples used for qualification testing of coatings utilized in nuclear power plant construction and maintenance. All panels should be carbon steel. Materials shall be tested for abrasion, and shall conform to specified requirements of steel samples, and concrete blocks.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application.

Significance and Use
4.1 This specification provides uniform requirements for the preparation of test samples used for testing of coatings and linings to be used in nuclear power plants.
4.2 At the users discretion, this standard may also be used when preparing samples to be tested for the purpose of assessing performance attributes for coating and lining systems that may be applied in other types of power plants or for other industrial facilities.
4.3 Users of this guide must ensure that coatings work complies not only with this guide, but also with the licensee’s plant-specific quality assurance program and licensing commitments.
1.1 This specification defines the size, composition, surface preparation, and coating application variables for preparing samples for evaluating coatings and linings over various substrates.
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
1.3 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.
