This standard describes a procedure for on-site measurement of the surface profile of abrasive blast-cleaned steel surfaces that have a surface profile, as defined in Section 2, between 38 and 114 μm (1.5 and 4.5 mils). The procedure has been demonstrated to correlate well with the measurements obtained by the defined laboratory procedure on nonrusted panels prepared to NACE No. 1/SSPC(1)-SP 5,1 NACE No. 2/SSPC-SP 10,2 or NACE No. 3/SSPC-SP 6.3 Suggestions are given regarding the implementation and use of this procedure.
