    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers the requirements for cleaning, coating, or surface modification, or combinations thereof, of conductive materials, primarily metals.

    1.2 This specification covers any conductive material treated or processed by the electrolytic plasma process (EPP) including: products designated as long products, including wire and fine wire; flat-rolled materials; fasteners; connectors; bolts; assemblies; structural materials; hardware items; and medical items.

    1.3 Products created under this process shall specifically specify requirements for the specific product being processed using the EPP process.

    1.4 This specification is applicable for orders in either inch-pound or SI units.

    1.5 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system are not necessarily exact equivalents; therefore, to ensure conformance with the standard, each system shall be used independently of the other, and values from the two systems shall not be combined.

    1.6 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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

    1.7 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
