Description / Abstract:

This manual discusses materials associated with painting operations, procedures for marking and camouflaging equipment, and methods of applying paint.

This manual is applicable to equipment under U.S. Army jurisdiction, whether assigned to active service or in wet or dry storage. Additional information for painting watercraft and aircraft are contained in TB 43-0144, Painting of Vessels, and TM 55·1500-345-23, Painting and Marking Army Aircraft. For additional information for painting military vehicles, construction equipment and m¡¡terial handling equipment, refer to TB 43-0 20 9. For detailed corrosion correction and prevention techniques, refer to TB 43·0 213.


TM43- 0139 This manual is published to provide information and guidance to personnel charged with painting and marking equipment for which the U.S. Army has responsibility. It contains instructions for treating surfaces to remove corrosion, and procedures for preventing corrosion by applying protective coatings. Although maily paint systems are covered, special emphasis is placed on the Chemical Agent Resistant Coatings (CARC), because they are particularly effective in resisting corrosion and chemical penetration, and are also decontaminated more easily than are other coatings.
