scope:

1.1 This guide is intended as an information aid to painting inspectors in carrying out the task efficiently. It includes the key elements of surface preparation, coatings application, and final approval for both field and shop work. The items should be selected that are pertinent to a specific project.

Note 1: For additional helpful information, refer to the following documents:
Manual of Concrete Practice ACI 515R American Concrete Institute2
Manual of Coating Work for Light Water Nuclear Power Plant Primary Containment and Other Safety Related Facilities3
C811 Practice for Surface Preparation of Concrete for Application of Chemical-Resistant Resin Monolithic Surfacings4
Steel Structures Painting Manual Vol. 1 - Good Painting Practices5
Steel Structures Painting Manual Vol. 2 - Systems and Specifications5
Manufacturers Specifications and Instructions (made available to the inspector for reference to special requirements for proper application)
Safety Data Sheets (needed to ensure that personnel take necessary precautions in handling hazardous materials). Available from Materials manufacturer.

1.2 Certain industries or owners may require certified inspection personnel. See Guide D4537 for establishing procedures to certify inspectors for coating work in nuclear facilities. SSPC offers a training and certification program for concrete coating inspection.5

1.3 In certain cases the inspector may be required to assess the condition of the concrete substrate. SSPC has published an illustrated guide for performing a concrete condition assessment.5

1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
