This standard describes protective coatings that consist of liquid adhesives and tapes and their applications to steel water pipe and fittings to be used for underground and underwater pipelines. Tape coatings conforming to this standard may be field- or shop-applied, without the use of heat (i.e., not hot-applied coatings), to uncoated pipe and fittings or as a joint coating to pipe and fittings protected with organic coatings. These liquid adhesives and tapes are not intended for use with either exposed steel joints or sections of steel pipe where coating of cement mortar or concrete has been applied directly onto the bare steel pipe.
