This document establishes the main requirements for:
— a choice of coating materials and coatings for space applications;
— processes and procedures for the verification of coating materials;
— processes of preparation and quality control of the painted surface;
— the quality control of the applied coatings.
This document also describes the causes of possible defects in coatings.
This document is applicable to coating materials and coatings based on them; it is intended for use by manufacturers of space systems products for various surfaces of spacecraft’s and its constitutive parts (on-board systems, facilities, tools, electronic component base products) with long active lifetimes.
