A. Hello Rajiv!

Federal standards such as QQ-Z-325 are maintained by the General Services Administration, a part of the US Government. They chose to cancel this one back in March of 1982. While they did not supersede the specification, they did mention in the cancellation notice that ASTM has a fine document numbered ASTM B633 [affil. link to spec at Techstreet] that people can use for acquisition.

That specification correlates the thickness of the coating to the service that the part is expected to take. There is no simple "Class 1". So, I expect you'll have to ask your customer what thickness they want.
