National foreword

This British Standard has been prepared under the direction of the Surface
Treatments and Coatings Standards Policy Committee and is the English
language version of EN 22063:1993 Metallic and other inorganic coatings —
Thermal spraying — Zinc, aluminium and their alloys, published by the
European Committee for Standardization (CEN). It was derived by CEN from
ISO 2063:1991, published by the International Organization for Standardization
(ISO). It supersedes BS 2569-1:1964 which is withdrawn.
The CEN common modifications have been implemented at the appropriate
places in the text and are indicated by a side line in the margin. Parts of the
original ISO text that have been modified by CEN have been quoted in national
annex NA.
A British Standard does not purport to include all the necessary provisions of a
contract. Users of British Standards are responsible for their correct application.
Compliance with a British Standard does not of itself confer immunity
from legal obligations.

Foreword
This European Standard has been taken over by the
Technical Committee CEN/TC 240, Thermal
spraying and thermally sprayed coatings, from the
work of ISO/TC 107, Metallic and other inorganic
coatings, of the International Organization for
Standardization (ISO).
CEN/TC 240 has decided to submit the final draft
for formal vote by its resolution 19/1992. The result
was positive.
This European Standard shall be given the status of
a national standard, either by publication of an
identical text or by endorsement, at the latest by
March 1994, and conflicting national standards
shall be withdrawn at the latest by March 1994.
According to the CEN/CENELEC Internal
Regulations, the following countries are bound to
implement this European Standard: Austria,
