Some nuclear power plant licenses may include requirements for Coating Service Level II coatings; these requirements must be satisfied when selecting Coating Service Level II coating materials and systems.
1.1 This guide provides a common basis on which protective coatings for the surfaces of nuclear power generating facilities may be qualified and selected by reproducible evaluation tests. This guide also provides guidance for application and maintenance of protective coatings. Under the environmental operating and accident conditions of nuclear power generation facilities, encompassing pressurized water reactors (PWRs) and boiling water reactors (BWRs), coating performance may be affected by exposure to any one, all, or a combination of the following conditions: ionizing radiation; contamination by radioactive nuclides and subsequent decontamination processes; chemical and water sprays; high-temperature high-pressure steam; and abrasion or wear.
1.2 The content of this guide includes:
|Significance and Use||4|
|Coating Material Testing||5|
|Surface Preparation, Coating Application, and Inspection for|
Shop and Field Work
1.2.1 In addition, this guide addresses technical topics within ANSI N5.12 and ANSI N101.2 that are covered by separate ASTM standards, for example, surface preparation, (shop and field) and coating application, (shop and field).
1.2.2 Applicable sections of this guide and specific acceptance criteria may be incorporated into specifications and other documents where appropriate.
1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
1.4 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.
