Revision Date: June 24, 2010
Updated On: July 26, 2010
Editorial Change:
This test method is designed to provide a uniform test to assess the suitability of coatings, used in nuclear power facilities, under radiation exposure for the life of the facilities, including radiation during a DBA (Coating Service Level I areas only). Specific plant radiation exposure may exceed or be less than the amount specified in 7.2 of this standard. If required by the licensee design basis, the gamma dose used may exceed the actual anticipated plant gamma dose to account for beta dose. Coatings in Level II and III areas (outside primary containment) are expected to be exposed to lower accumulated radiation doses.

This test method covers a standard procedure for evaluating the lifetime radiation tolerance of coatings to be used in nuclear power plants. This test method is applicable to Coating Service Levels I, II, and III.
