ASTM F 1130—99 — STANDARD PRACTICE FOR INSPECTING THE COATING CONDITION OF THE SHIP
|D O W N L O A D|
This standard ASTM practice was prepared and released with the ultimate intention to describe the established regular procedures that are to be taken into consideration when conducting the inspections of the coating systems applied to the vessel's hull and superstructure, decks, tanks and voids, various machinery installed on the open decks, and bottom coating.
The authors have also provided a number of standard coating condition reporting forms, and some necessary diagrams supplementing the text data parts, for reporting of the extent of the damage that has occurred to the coating observed during inspection. However, please bear in mind that the procedures mentioned above should only be used by the experienced marine coating inspectors. In addition, this paper contains requirements for the coating inspectors, referenced standards, procedures to be used, form instructions etc.
Apart from all that, significant part of this regulatory publication has been dedicated to the corrosion and its classification, fouling of the underwater hull/boottop, as well as examination of corrosion and coating condition assessment, acceptability, measured properties, and recommendations - more or less everything the inspector has be familiar with to be able to assess the actual condition of the coating correctly.
