GENERAL SAFETY PRACTICES DURING PAINTING OPERATIONS

13.1 Introduction. This section discusses general safety concerns during painting operations and appropriate actions to be taken to protect those conducting these operations and others in the immediate area. Installation safety and industrial hazards offices should be consulted to determine detailed requirements for worker safety, including protection from toxic materials. General concerns will be discussed, […]

PROGRAMMING MAINTENANCE PAINTING

12.1 Definitions of Programmed Painting and Maintenance Painting. Paint programming is a systematic planning process for establishing when painting is required, what painting should be done, by whom, at what times, and in what manner. Maintenance painting is a vital adjunct to programmed painting. It is defined as a field procedure for maintaining existing coatings […]

ANALYSIS OF PAINT FAILURES

11.1 Definition. Organic coatings deteriorate and fail with time. Failure analysis does not concern itself with this type of deterioration. It is defined as an investigation to determine the cause or causes of premature deterioration of coatings or coating systems. It is obvious, however, that failure analyses are often also directed at obtaining additional information […]

FIELD INSPECTION INSTRUMENTS

10.1 Introduction. This section describes field instruments commonly used in inspection of field painting. The References section of this handbook lists the full title and sources of standard test methods referenced in this section. For equipment descriptions having no referenced standards, no standards are available. Typical suppliers include: a) Paul N. Gardner Company, Inc., Gardner […]

INSPECTION OF PAINTING OPERATIONS

9.1 Scope of Section. This section describes the duties of an inspector, general inspection procedures, and specific inspection methods used in inspecting painting operations. Depending upon the job and the contract requirements, quality — control inspectors may be contractor-supplied (that is, contractor quality control — CQC) or Government personnel. In either case, the contracting officer […]

APPLICATION

7.1 Introduction. This section provides general information on paint application and on activities associated with application such as paint storage and mixing. Application procedures discussed include brushing, rolling, and spraying (conventional air, airless, air-assisted airless, high-volume low-pressure, electrostatic, plural component, thermal, and powder). 7.2 Paint Storage Prior to Application. The installation industrial hygienist should be […]

SURFACE PREPARATION

6.1 Introduction. Surface preparation is the single most important factor in determining coating durability. Available data and experience indicate that in most situations, money spent for a clean, well-prepared surface reduces life-cycle costs. A proper surface preparation: a) Removes surface contaminants (e. g., salts and chalk) and deteriorated substrate surface layers (e. g., rust and […]

COATING SYSTEMS FOR SPECIFIC USES

5.1 General. Section 4 of this document provides general guidance for the selection of coating systems for wood, concrete/masonry, steel, galvanized steel, and aluminum surfaces. This section provides more detailed information on systems for specific structures or components of structures. These structures include metal storage tanks, pipe lines, towers, waterfront structures, siding, fences, and hot […]

SELECTION OF COATINGS

4.1 Available Guidance. Guidance for specifying coating systems for original or maintenance painting of shore facilities is found in specialized guide specifications such as NFGS-13283 or CEGS 09900 or in Air Force Engineering Technical Letters. In these documents, surface preparation for the primer is usually considered a part of the system because of its importance […]
