Lesson 5 - SSPC VIS 1

SSPC VIS 1 VISUAL STANDARDS

Objective:

The objective of this training unit is to give a full and comprehensive review of the SSPC-VIS1 Guide titled 'Guide and Reference Photographs for Steel Surfaces prepared by Dry Abrasive Blast Cleaning'.

On completion of this training unit the student should be able to use the visual standards in inspection duties and activities.

The SSPC: The Society for Protective Coatings has a number of visual standards which are used in conjunction with written standards, of which are also joint standards with NACE International (National Association of Corrosion Engineers). This training unit along with subsequent units will fully detail the visual standards and how they are used in the Protective Coatings Industry. SSPC has allowed the use of the photographs used in these training units, however the original visual standards must be used for coating inspection activities. These standards are available at SSPC: www.sspc.org

Lesson 6 - SSPC VIS 3
