Description / Abstract:

This standard establishes minimum requirements for finish systems for Air Force support equipment and also establishes a code system to specify those finish systems in a simplified manner on drawings by Air Force engineering activities and in contractor generated drawings as required by procurement officers.

Electronic equipment and munitions are excluded from the requirements of this standard.

For application of finishes to support equipment, surfaces are classified as follows:

     Type I (exposed)       Type I surfaces are areas either exposed
                            directly to the environment when equip-
                            ment is in operating or travelling con-
                            figuration, or areas not exposed directly
                            to the environment but subject to combined
                            direct action of environmental elements.
                            Environmental elements include temperature
                            extremes, humidity extremes, rain, hail,
                            snow, sleet, salt laden air, industrial
                            atmospheres, direct solar radiation, dust,
                            and the abrasive action of wind-blown sand.

    Type II (sheltered)     Type II surfaces are areas not exposed
                            directly to the environment during equip-
                            ment operation and travelling configuration
                            and are not subjected to direct action of
                            rain, hail, snow, sleet, direct solar rad-
                            iation, and wind-blown sand.




This standard is applicable for use by all Air Force procuring activities and their respective contractors involved in the design and procurement of support equipment. The detailed drawings and detailed finish specification applies to all elements of support equipment, including spares.
