This handbook covers virtually all aspects of coating fixed structures. These include surface preparation for painting; selecting, application, inspection of coatings for both original and maintenance painting; quality control methods and equipment; and painting different substrates and facilities. It does not cover painting of ships, aircraft, or motor vehicles. The coatings covered are limited to organic paint-type materials, with a few exceptions. Inorganic zinc, thermal spray metal, and powder coatings are included, because they are most commonly used as alternatives to conventional organic coatings and, like organic coatings, are usually applied by spray.
Purpose. This handbook presents information on the effective use of paint-type coatings to protect metal, concrete, and wooden structures at military activities from deterioration. In it, the words "paint" and "coating" are used interchangeably. Sometimes, the word "paint" is used to describe and architectural rather than protective material, but this is not the case in this document.
