The ACT Orange Peel Standards consist of ten 4×6 inch panels with graduated degrees of orange peel (flow) from rough to smooth. Each panel within the set is painted black and labeled with a corresponding flow rating (orange peel) from 1 to 10.
The Fitz’s Atlas 2 of coating defects is a reference manual with over 300 colour images, providing a clear and concise description of all problems that could occur, as well as their possible causes.The book is divided into the following sections:
In 2007 updated version of the standard measure for the visual evaluation of rust and purity levels of non-coated steel. Also known as the “Swedish steel blasting grades” SS 05 59 00 (Sa). Contains high-quality colour photographs for estimating the rust levels and purity levels after cleaning manually or by machine (also with blasting).
Target audience: Blasting and painting companies and their clients, paint technicians, advice bureaux and industrial coating businesses.
Guide and Reference Photographs for Steel Surfaces Prepared by Dry Abrasive Blast Cleaning.
SSPC’s most widely used visual reference features over 50 full-color photos of previously coated and uncoated, rusted steel surfaces before and after dry abrasive blast cleaning. Similar to the Swedish and British standards, but the pictures of the required final appearances match the written descriptions in the USA standards. Cleanliness requirements for conditions depicted are defined by the SSPC surface preparation specifications for white metal (SP 5), near-white (SP 10), commercial (SP 6), industrial (SP 14), and brush-off (SP 7) blast finishes. Appendix photographs show variations in white metal surfaces caused by different metallic and non-metallic abrasives, profile depth, angle of view, and lighting. Now with guides in both English and Spanish!
Standard Method of Evaluating Degree of Rusting on Painted Steel Surfaces.
SSPC’s popular rust standard features a series of 27 full color images and 27 black and white diagrams representing various degrees of spot, general, and pinpoint rusting on painted steel surfaces. Text and tables provide a guide to the use of the reference photographs; a scale and description of standard rust grades; a comparison of SSPC, ASTM, ISO, and other rust grade scales; and other useful information.
Guide and Reference Photographs for Steel Surfaces Prepared by Hand and Power Tool Cleaning
Contains a series of 43 full-color reference photographs to be used as a supplement to the SSPC standards for hand and power tool cleaned steel. Shows a total of seven different steel surfaces (four uncoated and three previously coated) before and after hand tool cleaning (SP 2), power tool cleaning with power wire brushes and sanding discs (SP 3), power tool cleaning to bare metal (SP 11), and commercial grade power tool cleaning (SP 15). Also contains photos of SP 11 surfaces with a restored profile, a revised guide to the use of reference photographs, a new table of standards and conditions depicted, and additional explanatory notes.
Guide and Reference Photographs for Steel Surfaces Prepared by Waterjetting
Shows a total of six different steel surfaces (two uncoated and four previously coated) before and after waterjetting. Photographs illustrate four separate degrees of cleaning (WJ 1, WJ 2, WJ 3, and WJ 4) for each initial condition, with additional photos that depict the appearance light, moderate, and heavy flash rust after cleaning. Also contains a written guide to the use of reference photographs and additional explanatory notes. Cleanliness requirements for conditions depicted are defined by the joint SSPC/NACE surface preparation specification for high- and ultrahigh-pressure water jetting (SP 12/NACE 5).
Guide and Reference Photographs for Steel Surfaces Prepared by Wet Abrasive Blast Cleaning
Pictorial Standard shows two uncoated, rusted steel surfaces (Conditions C and D) before and after wet abrasive blast cleaning. Photographs illustrate two degrees of cleaning (WAB 6 and WAB 10) for each initial condition, with additional photos that depict the appearance of light, moderate, and heavy flash rust after cleaning. Also contains a written guide to the use of reference photographs and additional explanatory notes. Cleanliness requirements for conditions depicted are defined by the joint SSPC/NACE surface preparation specifications for commercial (SP 6/NACE 3) and near-white blast cleaning (SP 10/NACE 2). Photos of commercial and near-white surfaces achieved by dry abrasive blast cleaning can be found in SSPC-VIS 1.
A guide to assist ship’s staff in the assessment of tank, hold and space coatings of existing ships for the purpose of determining compliance with the Rules and Regulations for the Classification of Ships. The guide handles the definition of the tank coating condition in Good / Fair / Poor classification. It also contains the IACS methodology to divide tanks into a number of smaller “areas under consideration” which can easily be identified. Further are included schematics to help defining area determination, percentage of coatings breakdown for specific ship structures and a comparison of common rust scales. A series of full color pictures of tank coatings in various conditions and a section that describes and shows the hotspots for corrosion and other common defects is also part of the guide.
The last section contains sketched indicating common nomenclature and terminology applied to typical structure of major ship types.

The Inspection of protective coating systems for corrosion control includes a wide range of test methods and techniques. In the Paint Inspector’s Field Guide( PIFG ) a wide range of these inspection methods are covered in an effort to aid individuals with the basic fundamentals of protective coating inspection whilst in the field.
Lee Wilson, who is a highly qualified and well-respected inspector with many years of field experience, provides an excellent description of the actions performed by an inspector and the tools they use. The Paint Inspector’s Field Guide covers all aspects from specification review and surface preparation works all the way through to application and final reporting.
The Paint Inspector’s Field Guide is complemented by a wide range of inspection and experience notes making it easy to solve those special problems which are commonly encountered in the field. Besides the textual support, the rich graphics provide clear visual reference to inspection techniques, standards and defects. The years of experience and the editing by Brian Goldie makes the Paint Inspector’s Field Guide a pleasure to read and the best reference book available.
The Paint Inspector’s Field Guide is a must have tool for any individual involved or interested in corrosion control by protective coatings and the inspections required to achieve this.
The price of the Paint Inspector’s Field Guide is 118.- EUR ex. works. For large quantities please contact us.
