This specification covers a coal tar emulsion coating to be used as a protective weather coat for hot or cold applied bituminous coatings on steel structures. It may also be used over suitable primers as a protective coating for above-ground steel structures subjected to atmospheric exposure in industrial areas.

This coating is suitable for use as a topcoat over hot or cold applied coal tar base coatings to provide protection against the deleterious effects of oxidation and ultraviolet radiation in Environmental Zone 1B (exterior, normally dry). It can also be used in heavy industrial environments such as Zones 3A (chemical exposure, acidic), 3B (chemical exposure, neutral), and 3C (chemical exposure, alkaline) where color is not a prime consideration.
