ISO 12679:2011 includes general guidelines for the workmanlike production of metallic, metal-ceramic, oxide-ceramic and plastic coatings, by means of thermal spraying on metallic and non-metallic parent materials.
ISO 12679:2011 provides recommendations for an appropriate and practical spray set-up, faultless manufacturing, monitoring, quality assurance and for non-destructive and destructive tests on the component and accompanying specimen. It describes details about negative effects which can occur. It also gives advice on how to prevent such effects.
Permissible coating loads and evaluation categories for quality are not the subject of ISO 12679:2011, as they are dependent on the operating conditions.
ISO 12679:2011 can be used for contract purposes.
