SSPC is offering a new standard, issued jointly with AASHTO and National Steel Bridge Alliance, on the application of thermal spray coatings to steel bridges.

SSPC-PA 18/AASHTO-NSBA S.82, developed by committee C.3.19, SSPC/AASHTO/NSBA Thermal Spray Coating Application, complements the existing standard SSPC-CS 23.00/AWS C.2.23/NACE No. 12, Specification for the Application of Thermal Spray Coatings of Aluminum, Zinc, and their Alloys and Composites for the Corrosion Protection of Steel.

The new standard is made to be adopted by transportation departments by reference in their standard specifications. It includes information on pre-production procedures, equipment, materials, surface preparation and application, as well as aspects like repairs and inspection.

The committee was chaired by Jeff Carlson of the National Steel Bridge Alliance.

The new standard is available online via the SSPC Marketplace and on the SSPC app.
