Scope This Specification defines the minimum mandatory requirements for qualifying coal tar epoxy coating products for use in Saudi Aramco's Approved Protective Coating System APCS-3 on steel and concrete. It shall be used when any of the following situations occur: 1.1 Initial Product Approval This specification shall be given to coating manufacturers, or other vendors of coating products, that wish to obtain initial approval for products that have not previously been qualified in accordance with this specification. 1.2 Purchase Requisitions/Purchase Orders This specification shall be attached to Purchase Requisitions or Purchase Orders when those documents address the procurement of coating products that have not been previously qualified in accordance with this specification. This specification does not apply to, and should not be included with, Purchase orders or requisitions for coating products that have been previously qualified per this specification. This specification should also not be included with purchase orders or requisitions for coated items or equipment when a Saudi Aramco approved protective coating system has been specified. 1.3 Periodic Product Compliance Checks This specification may be used for periodic product compliance checks on previously approved coatings. It shall be given to the organization conducting the compliance tests.

Conflicts and Deviations 2.1 Any conflicts between this specification and other Saudi Aramco Materials System Specifications (SAMSSs), Saudi Aramco Engineering Standards (SAESs), industry codes and standards, and Saudi Aramco Standard Drawings (SASDs) and Forms shall be resolved in writing by the Company or Buyer Representative through the Manager, Consulting Services Department of Saudi Aramco, Dhahran. Direct all requests to deviate from this specification in writing to the Company or Buyer Representative, who shall follow internal company procedure SAEP-302 and forward such requests to the Manager, Consulting Services Department of Saudi Aramco, Dhahran.

If coal tar epoxy coating for concrete, the panel shall be concrete coupons. The surface preparation of concrete shall be in accordance to technical guide ICRI 03730. 5.1.2 5.1.3 5.1.4 Abrasive blast the test panels to near white metal, SSPC SP 10 (SIS Sa 2-). The profile of the blasted surface shall be 65-100 micrometers. Coatings shall be mixed, applied and cured in accordance with the Vendor's recommendations. Dry film thickness shall be measured and recorded in accordance with SSPC PA 2, and shall meet the following requirements: Each coat for steel: 300 micrometers maximum per coat Total coating thickness for steel: 400 - 600 micrometers.
