Properly topcoated primers meeting this specification are suitable for exposures in Environmental Zones 1A (interior, normally dry), 1B (exterior, normally dry), 2A (frequently wet by fresh water), 2B (frequently wet by salt water) and 3C (chemical exposure, alkaline).

The specified primer is intended for application by brush, spray, or roller over steel surfaces prepared in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations. It is suitable as a shop primer, field primer, aintenance primer, or intermediate coat, and is to be applied in accordance with SSPC-PA 1, Shop, Field, and Maintenance Painting of Steel.
