The 8 most relevant Surface Profile Standards

Standards are available from several organizations that provide direction for using various methods to obtain an anchor profile measurement. Available standards include but are not limited to the following:

ASTM D 4417: Standard Test Methods for Field Measurement of Surface Profile of Blast Cleaned Steel

ASTM D 7127: Standard Test Method for Measurement of Surface Roughness of Abrasive Blast Cleaned Metal Surfaces Using a Portable Stylus Instrument

NACE RP0287: Standard Recommended Practice – Field Measurement of Surface Profile of Abrasive Blast Cleaned Steel Surfaces Using a Replica Tape

SSPC PA-17: Procedure for Determining Conformance to Steel Profile/Surface Roughness/Peak Count Requirements – is intended for use by specifiers and contractors. It provides a method for determining whether the profile of a steel surface is in conformance with project specifications when using the instruments and procedures contained in ASTM D 4417 and D 7127

ISO 8503-1:2012: Preparation of steel substrates before application of paints and related products – Surface roughness characteristics of blast-cleaned steel substrates – Part 1: Specifications and definitions for ISO surface profile comparators for the assessment of abrasive blast-cleaned surfaces

ISO 8503-2: Preparation of steel substrates before application of paints and related products – Surface roughness characteristics of blast-cleaned steel substrates – Part 2: Method for the grading of surface profile of abrasive blast-cleaned steel – Comparator procedure

ISO 8503-3: Preparation of steel substrates before application of paints and related products – Surface roughness characteristics of blast-cleaned steel substrates – Part 3: Method for the calibration of ISO surface profile comparators and for the determination of surface profile – Focusing microscope procedure

ISO 8503-4z: Preparation of steel substrates before application of paints and related products – Surface roughness characteristics of blast-cleaned steel substrates – Part 4: Method for the calibration of ISO surface profile comparators and for the determination of surface profile – Stylus instrument procedure
