8.0 PAINT APPLICATION

8.1 General

Prior to its application, paint shall be mixed by mechanical methods according to


the manufacturer’s instructions. Hand mixing is permissible only for a single pack
of materials in 4-liter or smaller containers.

Paint mixed in original containers shall not be transferred until all pigment is
incorporated with the vehicle, although part of the vehicle may be poured off
temporarily to simplify mixing. Thinning is not permitted without CWCO’s
approval; it shall be limited to 5 percent by volume or the VOC limit (420 g/L) in
force, whichever is less.

The painting of steel surfaces shall be performed in a careful manner with high-
quality spray equipment in accordance with SSPC-PA 1. Airless spray is
preferred over conventional spray, except when use of the latter is necessary.
Use of brushes and rollers shall be limited to applications that make spraying
impracticable. The painted surfaces shall be free of drops, ridges, waves, laps
and skips.

Two pack or single pack heavy-duty materials shall not be used if a skin has
formed.

Surface shall not be painted in rain, wind, fog, mist or in areas where injurious air
borne elements exist. Blast cleaned surface shall be coated with one complete
application of primer as soon as practicable but in no case later then the same
day as sand blasted.

To the maximum extend practicable, each paint of material shall be applied as


continuous film of uniform thickness free of discontinuities. Any spots or areas
missed in the application shall be re-coated and permitted to dry before the next
paint coat is applied.

Each paint coat shall be in a proper state of cure or dryness before the application
of the succeeding paint coat. Material shall be considered to be dry for repainting
when an additional paint can be applied without the development of any
detrimental film irregularities, such as lifting or loss of adhesion of the under coat.

8.2 Temperature Constraints

Ambient conditions that place constraints on paint applications are as follows:

 Paint shall not be applied when the ambient air temperature is less than
4 C (40 F), the relative humidity is more than 85 percent, or the surface
temperature is less than 3 C (37 F) above the ambient air dew point.

 Paint shall not be applied to outside surfaces if there is a probability of


rain before it can cure properly.

 Paint shall not be applied when the surface temperature is below the
paint’s minimum curing temperature.

 Paint shall not be applied when the surface temperature is higher than
39 C (102 F).

 Paint shall not be applied when the wind velocity can blow insects, dust,
and dirt onto the paint film, or interfere with paint application.

Painting Specification
Page 9 of 13
In all cases, the paint manufacturer’s restrictions shall apply if they are more
stringent.

9.0 PRIME COAT

Bare surfaces shall be primed with one coat of primer as indicated in Tables 1 to 2 for the
type of exposure.

Constraints associated with applying the prime coat are as follows:

 A prime coat shall be applied within 4 hours of the start of blast cleaning.

 The complete coat shall be free of defects (e.g., pinholes, voids, bubbles, runs,
and sags). Defective areas shall be repaired by additional painting or removed
and repainted.

 Primed surfaces exposed to a marine or polluted atmosphere shall be scrubbed


with fresh water and dried prior to overcoating.

 When bare metal is exposed during the cleaning of previously painted steel, a
prime coat shall be applied to the exposed areas before proceeding with the
application of the intermediate or finish coat.

To secure a satisfactory thickness of primer, all bolt heads, nuts, edges, corners and
crevices shall be “striped” with primary paint by brushing on a single pass (if spraying)
before the steel receives its first full prime coat. Striping shall extend 3 centimeters from
all edges.

10.0 TOPCOATS

Topcoats shall consist of an undercoat and overcoat application of paint to the prime coat.
The undercoat shall be tinted slightly from the overcoat color specified to provide a color
difference. If thinners or retarders are approved for use by CWCO, the wet film thickness
shall be increased proportionally to produce the correct DFT specified in Tables 1 to 2.

Topcoat applications and color requirements shall be as follows:

 Each coat of paint shall be dry to the touch prior to application of the next coat.

 Paint mixed for topcoats shall be applied within the time limit specified by the
manufacturer for the mixture.

 Piping systems shall be color-coded to identify the fluid type flowing within; 15
centimeter wide circumferential bands that identify the systems service in
accordance with Tables 1 to 2 shall be used.

 Piping shall be coded with color bands on both sides of branches, valves and wall
penetrations. Color band spacing along horizontal piping runs shall be
approximately every 7 meters and shall end within 1 meter of attached
equipment.

 The tinting material shall be compatible with the paint system and shall not be
detrimental to its service life.

 If manufacturer’s maximum recoat times are exceeded, special surface


preparation shall be carried out as recommended by manufacturer and approved
by CWCO.

Painting Specification
Page 10 of 13
 Word or symbol coding may be used in addition to color coding, except for toxic
materials where word application is required. Word or symbol coding shall be in
either black or white to contrast clearly with the piping finish color or the base
color.

11.0 SPECIAL APPLICATIONS
