1.1 This specification covers post-applied coatings, pavings, and linings for corrugated steel pipe and corrugated steel structural plate pipe, pipe-arches, and arches coated, paved, or lined with specified materials over either metallic coatings or metallic coatings with polymer coatings. This specification includes asphalt, polymerized asphalt, polymer, mastic, and emulsion coatings and asphalt and concrete pavements and linings applied to the pipe in the producing plant, as well as, asphalt and mastic coatings applied in the field. Field-applied concrete pavements and linings are covered by Specification A979/A979M. The pipe to which the coatings are applied is described in Specifications A760/A760M, A761/A761M, and A762/ A762M.
1.2 There is no cleaning operation currently included in pipe coating practice. However, experience has shown that a clean substrate provides good adherence for both cold- and hot-applied post coatings. The performance of post coating or lining, or both, will depend on the surface cleanliness over which it is applied.
1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.4 The following safety hazards caveat pertains only to the test methods portions, Sections 10 and 11, of this specification. 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.
