The purpose for which this comprehensive technical publication was written and prepared is to assist inspectors, engineers, contractors, construction managers and facility operators in the procedure and method of the application of a coating system. It applies to both new construction and in-service structural steel and piping. Countless hours of research over a two year period were performed to facilitate the compiling of the information. The use of this publication is voluntary and is intended for use in regards to the petroleum, petro-chemical and marine industry. This publication reflects in part, to a combined effort of engineers, chemists and related professionals who have over the years developed standards, procedures, methods and specifications in regards to the preparation of the substrate and the application and inspection of a multi-coat paint system. It explains in depth various types of coatings including epoxies, polyurethanes, vinyls, phenolics, silicones and silicates.
