This standard establishes the minimum requirements for training, examination, and certification of aerospace coatings application personnel applying liquid organic coatings to interior structural or exterior substrates. It establishes criteria for the certification of personnel requiring appropriate knowledge of the technical principles underlying aircraft surface preparation and coatings application for both protective and decorative purposes. Persons certified under this document shall receive documentation of certification by the Certifying Agency. Persons who successfully complete the requirements of this certification standard are considered to be able to successfully and consistently perform a broad spectrum of aerospace coatings application tasks to achieve the desired engineering purposes.
This standard defines a color index system used by, but not limited to, Government activities in a format suitable for color identification, color selection, color matching, and quality control inspection. It also describes the designation and use of color media that is available to conduct these activities. Use of the color index referenced in this standard is intended to promote standardization and consistency in the color of items produced for Government use. Color media is described as follows: Color Chip Representation, Fan Deck: Suitable for color identification and selection. Color Chip Representation, Color Book: Suitable for color identification and selection. Precise Color Matching, Individual Color Chips: Suitable for color matching and quality control inspection purposes. Precise Color Matching, Set of Color Chips: Suitable for color matching and quality control inspection purposes.
This standard presents the colors used by Government Activities in a format suitable for color selection, color matching and for quality control inspection. This document describes the designation and use of the color chips of this standard. Formats for color chip representation and precise color matching formats are as described below: Color Chip Representation, Fan Deck: Suitable for color identification and selection. Color Chip Representation, Color Book: Suitable for color identification, comparison and selection. Precise Color Matching, Individual Color Chips: A 3 × 5 inch color chip supplied in a 3 × 5 inch protective envelope, suitable for color matching and quality control inspection purposes. Precise Color Matching, Sets of Color Chips: A set containing one 3 × 5 inch color chip in its protective envelope for each Fed-Std-595 color, suitable for color matching and quality control inspection purposes.
The clear coating is an interior decorative coating used on metal substrates to enhance decorative value and for wear protection. Certain metal might tarnish if it doesn’t have a coating applied it to protect against scratches, and the clear coating allows you to protect the surface as well as bring up the gloss.
This specification covers the requirements for two classes and two types of rain erosion resistant coatings. This specification has been prepared as a direct replacement for the Military Specification MIL-C-83231A Notice 1. These products have been used for protecting glass fabric reinforced plastic laminates and other plastic parts used for exterior surfaces of aircraft and missiles, but usage is not limited to such applications.
