Specifications and Industrial Guidance

Specifications and industrial guidance have been developed by the Steel Structures Painting Council committees. These specifications are used for industrial applications. A second source of standardization data and guidance is the Department of Defense publications. The standardization documents include military handbooks that reference federal and military specifications. All these federal and military documents are listed in the Department of Defense Index of Specifications and Standards (DoDISS). The American Society for Testing and Materials issues consensus standards on paint constituents and the testing of paints; however, these standards currently do not cover paints as supplied by industrial producers or vendors. Other specifications and guidance are available from the National Association of Corrosion Engineers and the American Society of Naval Architects. Most of the documents are available in various libraries throughout the United States.
