Atmospheric Corrosion Inspection & Coating Condition Surveys

An atmospheric corrosion inspection and NACE coating condition survey will determine the condition of existing corrosion protections.

A Site-Visit consists of:

  • Review the condition of existing coatings

  • Determine the coating condition

  • Determine the severity of corrosion based on surface condition according to ISO 4628-3 / ASTM D 610 standards. Capital Inspectors custom designs a scale based off client’s specifications.

  • Characterize rust distribution according to SSPC-VIS 2 Standard Method of Evaluating Degree of Rusting on Painted Steel Surfaces.

  • Perform adhesion tests

  • Perform Dry Film Thickness (DFT) readings in a manner that complies with SSPC PA-2, Measurement of Dry Coating Thickness with Magnetic Gauges.


Comprehensive reporting of all findings is compiled into a detailed atmospheric corrosion inspection and coating condition survey report.
