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.
