Abstract : Specifications on zinc-rich paints that are now in use or proposed have been collected from governmental agencies, industry associations, and manufacturers. A tabulated comparison of 48 specifications, which were received in time for compilation, is presented. Complete copies of all those received, 78 in number, are appended. The choice of requirements for a new specification depends upon the selection of the formula, performance, and/or qualified product approaches. Statements of requirements in current specifications are adequate to cover all aspects except the characterization of the basic electrochemical protective function peculiar to the zinc-rich paints. Development of suitable electrical/electrochemical test specifications is recommended. (Author)
