6.2.1 Paints and primers shall be delivered to the store in the original containers bearing
the manufacturer's name, product designation and batch number. Shelf life and date
of manufacture. Material which have exceeded the manufacturer's recommended
shelf life shall not be used. Materials shall not be used or mixed into a new batch
after its recommended pot life has been expired. Material shall be used on a first-in,
first-out basis. Containers if stored for more than one month will be tumbled.
6.2.2 Paints, catalysts and thinners shall be stored in well ventilated buildings free from
excessive heat, sparks, flames and direct sunlight. Paints stored for short times on
the jobsite shall be protected from direct sunlight during the summer season.

6.2.3 Painting /Coating shall be applied in strict accordance with the coating
manufacturer's latest published instructions. In particular, the manufacturer's
recommended curing or drying time shall be allowed between coats of primer and
finish. Thickness of the coating shall be in accordance with the Coating Schedule or
the manufacturer's latest published instructions.
6.2.4 Two component (base and hardener) coatings like Air drying epoxy, Polyurethane
coatings etc shall be mixed in the ratio recommended by manufacturer to ensure
proper and complete curing of the coatings. Improper ratio leads to problems like
soft / non-dried film, poor performance, etc. The base and hardener are to be
separately mixed first to obtain a homogenous mixture. The hardener is to be added
to the base slowly, with continuous mixing / agitation and not the reverse. Power
agitation is preferred over hand mixing. Before application, Paint inspector will
oversee the operation to ensure the adherence to paint manufacturers instructions.
Only thinners of the type and quality specified shall be used. Care must be taken to
mix two pack materials components according to manufacturers recommendations.
6.2.5 Pump pressures and correct tip sizes shall be used to produce the most desirable
spray size pattern and thickness on airless spray equipment.
6.2.6 When using conventional spray equipment, the operator will ensure that the gun
parts and outlets are maintained in a clean and working order, to ensure the best of
cosmetic appearance upon application.
6.2.7 When mixing and spraying conventionally sprayed paints, straining of the material is
essential to avoid any gun blockage. Pressure pots are to be kept contamination free.
6.2.8 Paints containing heavy or metallic pigments that have a tendency to settle shall be
kept in suspension by continuous use of a mechanical agitator whilst being applied,
to ensure uniformity over the surface area, (e.g. zinc MIO's pigmented materials).
6.2.9 Dwelling time of two-pack components, once mixed, shall be no more than 30
minutes to enable the material to settle, and air bubbles to escape.
6.2.10 During application and whilst in a set state, the surface areas shall be inspected to
find holidays, runs, sags etc. Holidays will be coated in at this stage if detected prior
to full drying taking place. Care must be taken to ensure contact areas, if any, are
included in these criteria. Runs and sags will be brushed out.
6.2.11 Once dry, visual inspection will be carried out to establish any faults present. DFTs
will be taken and recorded. Any faults found will be rectified prior to application of
the successive coatings.

6.2.12 Prior to over coating, any previously applied coating, the DFT shall be taken and the
surface shall be inspected for pinholes, runs, sags etc. If any defects are found and
remedial action necessary, an NCR form will be utilized on the recommendation of
the QA Manager.
6.2.13 All edges, corners, webs and inaccessible areas, shall be stripe coated prior to full
application, to ensure integrity of WFT/DFT over surface areas.
6.2.14 All coatings shall be permitted to dry in accordance with their manufacturers
recommendations prior to being over coated. Attention to be given to drying
temperatures, etc.
6.2.15 Field application shall be by brush, roller or spray gun. Local regulations regarding
spray and roller coating shall be observed. A smooth uniform film shall be applied to
the surfaces to be coated. For Field joint coating where blast cleaning or clause 6.4.4
is not possible, minimum ST3 surface preparation to be achieved. The field paint
shall be compatible to ST3 surface finish as well as to existing paint at the adjoining
area.
6.2.16 The temperature of the substrate must be a minimum of 3C above the dew point
during abrasive blast cleaning and coating. The substrate temperature shall be a
minimum of 5C and a maximum of 60C during coating application.
6.2.17 Containers of paint, catalysts and thinners shall not be opened prior to use except
for spot inspection. They shall be tightly resealed after inspection.
6.2.18 The life time of any protective system is determined by the dry film thickness of the
paint system present on weld seams and sharp edges. Special attention should be
given to sharp edges to ensure that they are covered with an adequate coating
thickness.
6.2.19 Any addition of thinner to achieve the application viscosity should be made only
after the components are thoroughly mixed. Avoid using excess thinner than the
recommended volumes, since this will lead to lower DFT build up, sagging, longer
curing time, etc.
6.2.20 Painting should not be undertaken during fog or mist conditions or when rain or
snow is imminent, when the surface to be painted is wet with condensation or when
condensation can occur during the initial drying period of the paint.
6.2.21 The volume solids figure given in the product data sheets of paints is the percentage
of the film obtained from a given wet film thickness under specified application and
conditions. The theoretical coverage can be determined from the formula below:

8.1.6 Defective work shall be corrected by the Coating Subcontractor at his sole expense.

8.1.7 When more than one prime coat or finish coat is specified, then use a contrasting
colour in the first coat to distinguish between the first and second coats.
8.1.8 The average value of thickness readings taken over any square meter of a scheduled
area should be equal or exceed the nominal thickness specified and in no case
should any reading be less than 80% of the nominal thickness as mentioned in SSPC
PA 2.
8.1.9 Areas where coating thickness both thin and too thick locations are to be marked
and the Paint contractor shall carry-out repair at such areas. The surface areas shall
be inspected to find holidays, runs, sags etc. Holidays, if detected shall be coated
before full drying taking place. Runs and sags will be brushed out.
8.1.10 Determination of the thickness of each coat in a multi-coat system should be an
inspection hold-point. When using magnetic gages to measure multi-coat systems,
the average of the first coat must be determined prior to application of second coat.
Readings taken after the second coat is applied will obviously be the total thickness
of the two coats combined, and the specific thickness of the second coat can only be
determined by subtracting the average thickness obtained from the first coat
reading.
