A. May I suggest that you go to the Assist quicksearch webpage, download copies of revisions E and F and do a gap analysis. The copies are free so all it will cost you is your time.

Ed. note: True, they're 'free'. American shops taxed to give their Chinese & Indian competitors a free leg up on them; and somewhere in the mix is probably a beltway bandit whose political donations are being returned to him 50X over   :-)

Q. Ken,

MIL-A-8625 Rev. F states that sealing can be specified to improve the corrosion resistance of Type III coatings. However, I do not believe it requires additional testing. Can you site the governing paragraph(s)?
