DFT – As recommended by paint manufacturer


A length of 50 –100mm from the pipe ends shall be kept uncoated for field welding
purpose.
The detailed application procedures shall be submitted to purchaser for approval.
The primary coat shall be applied within 2 hours of blast cleaning. The manufacturers
instructions shall be observed on mixing, time limited for application of the missed paint
and on time limits between two coats.

Lining material application shall be by airless spray or as otherwise agreed with the
paint manufacturer and reviewed without objection by purchaser. Lining materials
shall be applied when the temperature of the prepared surface is below the dew point,
or when the atmospheric temperature is below 10 deg.C, or when the relative humidity
is above 85% or when airborne dust may be deposited on the painted surface.

Temporary protective coatings, oil, grease and paint (such as mill marking paint) shall
be removed. Lining materials shall be applied in two or more coats to a dry film thickness
of 0.127 mm to 0.152 mm also over welds DFT of 0.1 mm is acceptable or as suggested
by the paint manufacturers for Jet A-1 fuel. The finished lining material shall be smooth
and glossy and free from drips and runs. It shall be fully cured before the ends are sealed
and before external coating is commenced. The finished lining material film shall be
tested for cure and adhesion as detailed below:

Surface preparation shall be by blast cleaning to “near white” as specified in the


standards.

The proposed internal lining shall be compatible with Jet A-1 fuel and shall be reviewed
without objection by the purchaser prior to its use.

maximum amplitude of surface roughness shall be 0.1 mm.
The type of abrasive and its particle size shall be to BS 7079:1993
The blast cleaning procedure shall be to BS 7079:1993
The photographic standard of surface preparation shall be to Svensk Standard
SIS 055900-1967 Grade Sa.2.5

2.5 Application

Lining material application shall be to US MIL-STD-C-4556E standard. The brand and


type shall be without objection by BIAL The primary coat shall be applied within 2 hours
of blast cleaning. The manufacturer’s instructions shall be observed on mixing, time limits
for application of the mixed paint and on time limits between coats.

Lining material application shall be by airless spray or as otherwise agreed with the paint
manufacturer and reviewed without objection by BIAL. Lining material shall not be
applied when the temperature of the prepared surface is below the dew point, or when
the atmospheric temperature is below 10 ºC, or when the relative humidity is above 85
% or when airborne dust may be deposited on the painted surface.

Lining material shall be applied in two or more coats to a dry film thickness of
0.127 mm to 0.152 mm, as measured by an Elcometer inspector or equipment
instrument reviewed without objection by BIAL. Over welds, a minimum dry film
thickness of 0.1 mm is acceptable. The finished lining material film shall be smooth and
glossy and free from drips and runs. It shall be fully cured before the ends are sealed
and before external coating is commenced. The finished lining material film shall be
tested for cure and adhesion as detailed below.

▪ The entire internal surface of the pipe and fittings shall be lined except for a band of
width 50 mm at the butt welding end. Welding bevels shall be tape- masked during
application of the lining.

2.6 Testing Procedure

Before the lined pipe leaves the manufacturer’s works, the lining shall be fully cured as
indicated by Ketone Test. The coating shall be rubbed for 1 minute with a clean white
rag soaked in methyl ethyl ketone (MEK). The surface rubbed by the MEK rag shall show
no sign of discoloration.

The adhesion of each coat shall be checked separately. This is to be tested by the Cross-
cut Test as shown in BS 3900:1991 Part E6, or by cutting a grid pattern of approximate
square side dimension of 1 mm with a sharp knife. A strip of household transparent sticky
tape shall be pressed down on to the grid pattern and then ripped off. If squares of lining
appear on the tape, adhesion is not adequate.

To allow testing of the adhesion of the first coat in a fully cured state, test pieces shall
be provided. The test pieces shall be a minimum of 100 mm x 50 mm of 1.626 mm (16
gauge) mild steel which has been shot blasted to Sa 2.5 at the same time as the inside
of the pipe. Test piece shall be coated at the same time as the pipe.

The number of test pieces to be provided shall be whichever of the following is the sooner:
at the beginning, middle and end of each shift at the beginning and end of each paint
mix.

Test pieces shall be given a traceable serial number such that they can be identified
with given batches of pipe.

Subsequent to the adhesion and curing test specified above, test pieces shall be retained
and sent to Site for extended soak tests.

2.7 Inspection

The Contractor shall give twenty-eight days notice to the BIAL prior to pipe preparation
and lining works being carried out.

Any lining which fails the tests for cure and/or adhesion shall be blasted off to bare metal
and made good. Lining which is too thin may be built up provided that the full inter-coat
adhesion is achieved.
Each pipe shall be given a serial number (in chalk on the outside) after satisfactory
shot/grit blasting and inspection. The date and time of each of the various processes and
inspection shall be recorded.

Each batch of lining material shall be mixed to the manufacturer’s instructions under the
supervision of an inspector and the details of the mix recorded (see Annex 1). It shall be
possible to relate the paint batch mix number to specific lengths of pipe.

2.8 End Closures

The ends of each lined pipe shall be firmly closed and sealed with recessed plastic end
caps so as to prevent the ingress of foreign matter during shipping and handling of the
pipe. Before closing, the beveled ends shall be freed from any trace of paint material and
shall be protected from rusting by a layer of anti- corrosion tape. Lengths of pipe which
are received on site without such end closures shall be rejected.
