Using SSPC-PA 2 Effectively

SSPC-PA 2 is one of the most frequently specified standards for frequency and acceptability of dry film thickness measurements.

This 90-minute eCourse demonstrates how to complete the measurements described in the SSPC-PA 2 standard. Through visual examples, many filmed at an actual job site, students will learn the frequency of spot measurements on pipe spools, test panels, coated steel beams and pipe sections. Students will also gain valuable practice in determining whether the film thickness in a given area conforms to the various coating thickness restriction levels outlines within the SSPC-PA 2 standard.
