Category B/C2 (Mild Steel- Water Borne)

Category B: Low. Environments in this category include dry, rural areas as well as other regions remote from the coast or sources of pollution. Most areas of Australia and New Zealand beyond at least 50 kilometres from the sea are in this category, which can however extend as close as 1 kilometre from seas that are relatively sheltered and quiet. Typical areas occur in arid and rural inland regions, most inland cities and towns such as Canberra, Ballarat, Toowoomba, Alice Springs and Hamilton (New Zealand) and suburbs of cities on sheltered bays, such as Melbourne, Hobart, Brisbane and Adelaide (except areas within 3 to 6 kilometres of the coast near Adelaide). Unheated or non-air-conditioned buildings where some condensation may occur, such as warehouses and sports halls, can be in this category. Proximity to the coast is an important factor.
