ASTM, NACE or SSPS standard for allowed amount of rust on new steel





December 12, 2011

Q. I am working in a company that sells steel and we have problems when selling steel when it is rusty.

For example, steel is stored in the open (gets sun and water) and the oxidation product causes customers to reject it.

The question is: is there is a standard by ASTM, NACE or SSPS to talk about the stages of oxidation?

Which is oxidation maximum allowed by the rule (standard) if I sell steel under ASTM A36 [affil. link]?
