This standard specifies requirements so that:
? It is independent of the type of the thermally sprayed structure.
? It defines quality requirements for thermal spraying both in workshops and on site.
? It provides guidance for describing a manufacturer's capability to produce thermally sprayed constructions to
meet specified requirements.
? It may also be used as a basis for assessing the manufacturer in respect to his thermal spraying capability.
This standard is appropriate when demonstration of a manufacturer's capability to produce thermally sprayed
construction, fulfilling specified quality requirements, are specified in one or more of the following:
? a contract between involved parties;
? an application standard;
? a regulatory requirement.
The requirements contained within this standard may be adopted in full or may be selectively deleted by the
manufacturer if not applicable to the construction concerned. They provide a flexible framework for the control of
thermal spraying in the following cases:
? Case 1
To provide specific requirements for thermal spraying in contracts which require the manufacturer to have a quality
system other than EN ISO 9001 or EN ISO 9002.
? Case 2
To provide specific requirements for thermal spraying in contracts which require the manufacturer developing a
? Case 3
To provide specific requirements for thermal spraying in application standards which uses thermal spraying as part
of its requirements or in a contract between relevant parties. It may however be more appropriate for
EN ISO 14922-4 to be used in such cases.
