The New SSPC Surface Profile Measurement Conformance Standard
by William D. Corbett, KTA-Tator, Inc.
Organizations including ASTM, ISO, and NACE have published test methods for measurement of surface profile and surface roughness. However, none of these standards describe a process for determining whether the surface profile/roughness characteristics conform to the contract documents. This webinar describes a new SSPC standard intended to fill this void. A brief overview of measurement acquisition techniques is provided; however, the focus of the webinar is on the sections of the standard that describe how to establish a process control procedure, and the procedures associated with establishing a frequency of measurement and evaluating whether the measurements conform to the project specification.
