In mid-December, SSPC: The Society for Protective Coatings announced the release of four new and three revised technical standards. The new standards include SSPC-PA 19, “Standard for Visual Evaluation of Pinholes in a Concrete or Masonry Coating,” and SSPC-SP CAB 1, “Abrasive Blast Cleaning of Concrete and Cementitious Materials – Thorough Blast Cleaning,” among others.

The four new standards are:

  • SSPC-PA 19, “Standard for Visual Evaluation of Pinholes in a Concrete or Masonry Coating,” which is aimed toward assisting specifiers, contractors and inspectors with determining what is acceptable in terms of a coating applied to concrete or masonry substrates; and
  • A group of three new standards, including SSPC-SP CAB 1, “Abrasive Blast Cleaning of Concrete and Cementitious Materials – Thorough Blast Cleaning”; SSPC-SP CAB 2, “Abrasive Blast Cleaning of Concrete and Cementitious Materials – Intermediate Blast Cleaning”; and SSPC-SP CAB 3, “Abrasive Blast Cleaning of Concrete and Cementitious Materials – Brush Blast Cleaning.” All three deal with “levels of surface cleanliness for blast cleaned concrete substrates, parallel to the SSPC/NACE joint blast cleaning standards for steel substrates,” according to SSPC.

The three revised standards are:

  • SSPC Guide 17, “Guide to Developing a Safety Program for Industrial Painting and Coating Companies,” which sees changes to the original version issued in 2007;
  • SSPC-Paint 20, “Zinc-Rich Coating Inorganic and Organic,” which changes the standard from a hybrid formulation/performance-based standard to strictly performance-based; and
  • SSPC-Paint 40, “Zinc-Rich Moisture-Cure Polyurethane Primer, Performance-Based,” which is a revision of the 2007 “of Paint 40 incorporates language revisions parallel to the 2017 revision of SSPC-Paint 41,” according to SSPC.

SSPC-Paint 20 Revised. A great step toward the new Zinch Rich Primers with less than 65%.
