Coating Information

The Painting and Surface Preparation Standard of S

Most of the industrial facilities are semi-permanent steel constructions with complicated structure, which, all the year round, are exposed to polluted environments where corrosion takes place very easily. In order to use coating to protect those facilities and equipments, and consequently to prevent corrosion and maintain normal production, it is demanded to utilize high-quality paints and employ qualified painting personnel who posses correct knowledge about coating performances and appropriate working procedures. Therefore, to paint industry, it is truly an important issue to conserve the service life of industrial facilities by understanding the characteristics of every kind of paints, selecting appropriate paints for different applications, and performing correct painting procedures.

Construction case for rustproof coating

The coating work must be performed according to the specific base material and environment as well as the paint coating system in order to achieve the desired rustproofing effect.

The construction cases provided below are for reference only. Should you have any question about the technical aspect, please contact our Technical Service Unit.

Painting Safety and Health

In general, paints are made of synthetic resin, which requires alcohol, ester, or another aromatic hydrocarbon with a low flash point as its dilution, and the vaporization of which is the main cause of explosion or fire during the painting process.

Due to its volatility and fats solubility, the solvent might be absorbed through the respiratory system and skin. Its difficult and slow elimination from the human body will cause hepatic failure or even liver cirrhosis, renal failure, and proteinuria.

The metallic compound powder in the paint and the powder from polishing may cause lead intoxication, silicosis, and other occupational diseases.

Referential example of estimating the paint consumption

Actual coating amount of the paint will be affected by the shape of the coated target, the type of paint, the climate conditions, the coating

equipment and the workmanship, etc. In view of this, it may lead to significant loss and the coating area that can be covered will also be much less than the theoretical value.

[Example]
Area size of the coated target: 100 M2
Paint used: Our No. 1001 epoxy finish coat
Theoretical coating size per gallon: 38 M2 / Gal
Design dry film thickness: 40μ
Theoretical paint consumption: 100 ÷ 38 = 2.63 (gal)
Manual brushing paint consumption (approx.): 2.63 x 1.4 = 3.682 (gal)
Spray coating paint consumption (approx.): 2.63 x 1.7 = 4.474 (gal)
