NACE International: The Corrosion Society

NACE International, founded as the National Association of Corrosion Engineers, is a nonprofit organization that develops and publishes standards focusing on the prevention of corrosion, a major issue concerning many far-flung industries. Headquartered in Houston, United States, NACE standards are used by over 22,000 members in over 100 countries. NACE also serves as the administrator for the U.S. TAGs (United States Technical Advisory Group) to two subcommittees in ISO/TC 35 (International Organization for Standardization/Technical Committee). Standards from NACE are available both individually, directly through the ANSI webstore, and as part of a Standards Subscription. If you or your organization are interested in easy, managed, online access to standards that can be shared, a Standards Subscription may be what you need - please contact us at: or 1-212-642-4980 or Request Proposal Price.

Below are NACE's best-selling standards. To find additional standards, please use the search bar above.

ANSI/NACE MR0175/ISO 15156 - 2015 SET

ANSI/NACE MR0175/ISO 15156, Petroleum and natural gas industries - Materials for use in H2S-containing environments in oil and gas production (includes parts 1, 2, and 3)

This standard describes general principles and gives requirements and recommendations for the selection and qualification of metallic materials for service in equipment used in oil and gas production and in natural gas sweetening plants in H2S-containing environments, where the failure of such equipment can pose a risk to the health and safety of the public and personnel or to the environment.

NACE No. 6/SSPC-SP 13-2018

Surface Preparation of Concrete

This NACE International/SSPC joint standard practice covers the preparation of concrete surfaces before the application of protective coating or lining systems. The standard includes two updated tables, Table 1 details classes of surface preparation, and Table 2 provides minimum acceptance criteria for concrete surfaces before coatings are applied and relevant test methods. The updated Appendix (nonmandatory) includes two additional tables, Table A1 provides typical surface properties of finished concrete, and Table A2 provides an extensive list of surface preparation methods for concrete surfaces. This standard should be used by specifiers, applicators, inspectors, and others who are responsible for defining a standard degree of cleanliness, strength, profile, and dryness of prepared concrete surfaces.

ANSI/NACE Standard MR0103/ISO 17945-1:2015

Petroleum, petrochemical and natural gas industries - Metallic materials resistant to sulfide stress cracking in corrosive petroleum refining environments

Establishes material requirements for resistance to SSC in sour petroleum refining and related processing environments containing H2S either as a gas or dissolved in an aqueous (liquid water) phase with or without the presence of hydrocarbon. This International Standard does not include and is not intended to include design specifications. Other forms of wet H2S cracking, environmental cracking, corrosion, and other modes of failure are outside the scope of this International Standard. It is intended to be used by refiners, equipment manufacturers, engineering contractors, and construction contractors.

NACE SP0287-2016

Field Measurement of Surface Profile of Abrasive Blast-Cleaned Steel Surfaces Using a Replica Tape

This standard details a procedure for on-site measurement of the surface profile of abrasive blast-clearned steel surfaces that have a surface profile between 38 and 114 ╡m. Included is a description of the equipment required to perform the procedure, and two appendices detailing results of round robin testing and a statistical summary. This standard is maintained by Task Group 419. 

NACE Standard SP0394-2013

Application, Performance, and Quality Control of Plant-Applied Single-Layer Fusion-Bonded Epoxy External Pipe Coating

This standard practice presents guidelines for establishing requirements to ensure proper application and performance of plant-applied single-layer fusion-bonded epoxy (FBE) coatings to the external surfaces of carbon steel pipe. It specifies methods for qualifying and controlling the quality of FBE pipe coatings, and identifies inspection and repair techniques to obtain the best applied FBE coating system. Included in this standard are several appendixes with additional information regarding FBE coatings, such as different types of testing and analysis. This standard also has several figures of examples, and tables with requiements and quality measurements. This standard is maintained by Task Group (TG) 031.

NACE Standard TM0173-2015

Methods for Determining Quality of Subsurface Injection Water Using Membrane Filters

This standard method is provided to improve available water quality data. This standard describes two methods for evaluating water quality for subsurface injection: Procedure A—rate versus cumulative volume test (for water-quality monitoring) and Procedure B—suspended solids test (for diagnosis or monitoring). The methods describe the apparatus required, test conditions, test procedures, reporting procedures, and supplementary tests. This standard is maintained by Task Group 408.


As the voice of the U.S. standards and conformity assessment system, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) empowers its members and constituents to strengthen the U.S. marketplace position in the global economy while helping to assure the safety and health of consumers and the protection of the environment.
