The QP 6 program evaluates the qualifications of industrial thermal spray (metallizing) contractors by evaluating the contracting firm annually through an on-site field audit where an independent AMPP auditor observes whether the contractor has the capability to evaluate and accept the preparation of the surface to be metallized and to thermally spray:
- Coatings of aluminum, zinc, and their alloys for corrosion protection of steel and/or
- Zinc anodes on steel reinforced concrete, in accordance with the quality and safety requirements of QP 6
Contractors can achieve QP 6 accreditation for steel, concrete, or both.
