The Confusion Surrounding the Painting of Bolted Connections – What Should and Shouldn’t be Done” considers a range of issues associated with the painting of bolted connections.

Some of the issues Trimber will address are:

  • Should bolt holes be painted?
  • How are galvanized or black fasteners prepared for painting in the field, and what coatings should be applied?
  • What restrictions are associated with the use of coatings in slip-critical joints?
