Requirements for sheet rubber lining of various equipment for protection against corrosion and/or abrasion. This standard can be used in design, installation, inspection, testing, and storage of rubber-lined equipment. Historical Document 1998
Sheet rubber linings are frequently used for the protection of surfaces such as metal, concrete, or fiberglass against chemical attack, abrasion, or both. Selection of proper lining materials and good lining workmanship are important components of lining performance.
The purpose of this standard recommended practice is to outline procedures for providing sheet rubber lining protection to new and used equipment, such as piping and vessels. Included are recommendations for surface preparation and the dimensions of piping that can be rubber lined. An explanation of types of rubber lining materials available and their methods of cure are also given.
This standard is useful to the specification writer as well as the end user. This standard can be used alone or in conjunction with detailed specifications addressing special needs of the end user.
This standard was prepared by NACE International Task Group T-6A-62, a component of Unit Committee T-6A on Coating and Lining Materials for Immersion Service, and is issued by NACE under the auspices of Group Committee T-6 on Protective Coatings and Linings.
1.1 This standard provides requirements for sheet rubber lining of various equipment for protection against corrosion and/or abrasion. This standard can be used in design, installation, inspection, testing, and storage of rubber-lined equipment.
1.2 This standard addresses sheet rubber (both natural and synthetic) applied over surfaces such as metal and concrete substrates.
1.3 Brushed, trowel-applied, or sprayed rubber linings are outside the scope of this standard.
