Coating Procedure i) Coating System Painting system for the pipelines and other structures shall be as indicated in this specification. ii. Application Before application of primer, the surface shall be cleaned of dust etc. Surfaces shall not be coated in adverse weather conditions, rain, wind, snow, fog, mist, or / and in areas where injurious airborne elements exist. Cleaned surfaces shall be coated with one complete application of primer as soon as practicable but in no case more than three hours after surface preparation. Application of coats shall not be carried out if the atmospheric temperature is less than 5C or if the temperature exceeds 40C in the shadow, 50C due to the influence of sun or if relative humidity exceeds 85% or in case of adverse weather conditions like rain, fog, dust storm etc. All paints shall be thoroughly stirred up prior to and during their application. To the maximum extent practicable, each coat of material shall be applied as a continuous film of uniform thickness free of pores. Coating media shall be applied in uniform thickness. All slots, recesses, grooves, corners, angles and interstices shall be covered by paint. Sag and runs shall be distributed or removed and new paint shall be applied uniformly. Any thin spots or area missed in the application shall be recoated and allowed to dry before the next coat is applied. Each coat shall be in proper state of cure / dryness before the application of the succeeding coat. Material shall be considered dry for recoating when an additional coat can be applied without development of any detrimental line irregularities, such as lifting or loss of adhesion of the undercoat. When successive coats of the same colour have been specified, alternate coats shall be tinted, when practical, sufficient to produce enough contrast to indicate complete coverage of the surface. When the material is of the same colour as of the steel, or when the tinting of the final coat is objectionable, the first coat to be applied shall be tinted. Page 51 of 71
