Problem Solving Forum (21)


How does one apply thin polymer coatings to installed tubes or pipes with diameters of one to three inches and lengths of 20 to 60 feet?


Can fluoropolymer coatings that are still very glossy be overcoated (if, for example, the topcoat is losing color or the color needs to be changed)? If so, what type of coating can be used, and what surface preparation is required?


What are some ways to improve transfer efficiency of airless spray application?


Does roller nap decrease the lifespan of a three-coat OZEU (organic zinc prime coat, an epoxy intermediate coat, and a urethane finish coat) paint system? Is there a visual guide or specification for this in the industry or test results available for study?


What are the criteria for selecting coatings for application during extreme (atmospheric) heat?


If the walls of single-wythe CMU with core fill insulation become saturated, can they be adequately dried out for painting? If so, how?


What can be done to prevent rust bleed in crevices when applying a zinc/epoxy/urethane system?


What are the criteria for selecting coatings for application during extreme (atmospheric) heat?


What is the best way to ensure successful application of an acid stain to an existing horizontal concrete surface?


Where can I find industry standards for air quality during spray painting operations, specifically regarding moisture, oil and particulates?


Is it sufficient to specify simply that paint should be applied "according to the manufacturer’s instructions?" If not, what detail should be included?

How do you prepare flame-cut edges for application of thermal spray metallic coatings? The problem is that these edges are often harder than the abrasive, so a very low profile is produced, resulting in lower-than-specified adhesion of the thermal spray to the steel.


What are some ways to improve transfer efficiency of airless spray application?


What differences in performance and speed do you see among plural-component, conventional airless, and conventional air spraying equipment for field painting structural steel?


How many times can a building be repainted before the paint becomes too thick to perform properly?


How long after blasting can stainless steel be left before painting? If this time is exceeded, what further surface preparation is required?


How do you adequately assess the adhesion of a newly applied coating?


How do you successfully apply a chemical-resistant lining to the interior of small-diameter pipes (3 inches or less)?


What is the effect on the permeability of a coating when you add additional coats, either at the time of the original painting or as a maintenance activity?


Is it sufficient to specify simply that paint should be applied "according to the manufacturer’s instructions?" If not, what kind of detail should be included?
