Standard Method of Evaluating Degree of Rusting on Painted Steel Surfaces
Provides a method to evaluate the degree of rusting on painted steel (or iron) surfaces. Particularly useful for evaluating rust on test panels or on localized areas of structures. A scale and description of rust grades are given, and 27 full-color photographs and the corresponding black-and-white rust images illustrating the maximum percentage of rusting allowed for each rust grade from rust grade 9 to rust grade 1 for three different rust distributions are included.
