This Standard defines requirements for inhibited lubricants and suggests types of tests that may be used to select such materials. 3. NACE Standard RP-O1-74 Recommended Practice: Corrosion Control of Electric Underground Residential Distribution Systems. This NACE Standard presents procedures and practices for the effective control of external corrosion on buried or submerged metallic com- ponents of electrical underground residential distribution systems, to be called URD systems in this document. 4. NACE Standard RP-02-74 Recommended Practice: High Voltage Electrical Inspection of Pipeline Coatings Prior to Installation. This standard covers detection and correction of defects in pro- tective coatings by high voltage electrical inspection of pipeline coatings prior to installation. 5. NACE Standard MR-02-74 Material Requirements: Material Requirements in Prefabricated Plastic Films for Pipeline Coatings This standard establishes material requirements of four types of prefabricated plastic films used for pipeline coating. It is intended that this Standard provide a basis for identification of these pipeline coatings by external parties. 6. NACE Standard RP-01-69 Recommended Practice: Control of External 'Corrosion on Underground or Submerged Metallic Piping Systems The purpose of this Recommended Practice is to present procedures and practices for achieving effective control of external corrosion on buried or submerged metallic piping systems. These recommenda- tions are also applicable to many other buried or submerged metallic structures. The Recommended Practice describes the use of electrically insulating coatings, electrical isolation and cathodic protection as corrosion control methods. u 7.

NACE Standard RP-01-72 Recommended Practice: Surface Preparation of Steel and Other Hard Materials by Water Blasting-Prior to Coating or Recoating. This NACE Standard presents specific data on the time factors in- volved in the cleaning of coated and uncoated steel by the water blast method and makes specific recommendations for safety pre- cautions which must be observed. 9. NACE Standard RP-02-72 Recommended Practice: Direct Calculation of Economic Appraisals of Corrosion Control Measures. This Recommended Practice establishes standard methods for economic appraisal of alternate corrosion control measures. Use of the cal- culation schedules in this Recommended Practice should permit the corrosion engineer to prepare an acceptable corrosion control pro- posal. 10. NACE Standard RP-03-72 Recommended Practice: Method for Lining Lease Production Tanks with Coal Tar Epoxy. This Standard covers the application of interior, protective, coal tar epoxy lining for lease production tanks. 11. NACE Standard RP-04-72 Recommended Practice: Methods and Controls to Prevent In-Service Cracking of Carbon Steel (P-1) Welds in Corrosive Petroleum Refining Environments. This Recommended Practice establishes a weld hardness limitation to prevent in-service cracking of welds on P-1 steel equipment used in the refining industry. Information is also given on the three primary factors believed related to in-service cracking of carbon steel welds. These factors are corrosive environment, hardness, and total stress. 12. NACE Standard RP-05-72 Recommended Practice: Design, Installation, .Operation, and Maintenance of Impressed Current Deep Groundbeds. This Recommended Practice presents procedures and practices for design, installation, operation and maintenance of deep groundbeds as applied to the control of external corrosion of underground or submerged metallic structures by impressed current cathodic pro- tection. 13.
