Surface Preparation.
General
Abrasive blasting materials used for surface preparation shall be cleaned, hard
angular, PH neutral, dry, paint manufacturer pre-approved, and shall have a chloride
level of not more than 20 ppm and a conductivity of less than 100 Siemens/cm
(ASTM D49-40).
Before application of any coatings, all surfaces to be coated shall be cleaned by
applicable means from visible salts and other contamination such as but not limited
to dust, moisture, fats, oils, soap solution, white deposits, soot from welding and
cutting, chalk marks, marking paints and other foreign materials.
Before pressure testing of tanks and compartments butt and seam welds shall be
surface prepared and coated with shop primer for rust prevention.
Any paint damage shall be made good at each coating stage before the application
of further coats.
Primary surface preparation
All surfaces of steel plates and sections shall have mill scale and rust removed prior
to use by means of shot/grit/quartz/sand/copper slag blasting to a bright metal
(Sa 2.5) finish.
After blasting plates shall be primer coated immediately with one coat of 20 microns
shop primer. During fabrication the primer coat shall be touched up where damaged
by mechanical means or by welding. The surface preparation work of the subcontracted machinery, equipment and piping shall be carried out in accordance with
this specification and in agreement with and under control of the Builder.
Secondary surface preparation
Before the first paint coat is applied in ballast, freshwater, foam and detergent
tanks, all sharp edges must be ground smooth with 3C edge preparation. In other
areas 1C edge preparation shall be applied for all sharp edges.
Burr caused by gas cutting shall be removed from all cut edges of structural
members. Welding slag and spatter clinging to surfaces on and around welding
beads shall be removed by hand scraper and/or disc sander. Sharp peaks shall be
ground flush.
Gas-burnt areas and other damaged parts of shop primer and weld seams shall be
shot-blasted or mechanically cleaned to SIS St 2 or 3 and touched-up with zinc
epoxy shop primer for rust prevention.
When the extent of the rusted or damaged portion of a plate caused by welding,
burning, etc. exceeds 40% of the plate area or if the Shop primer is broken down
more than 50 % or Shop primer prescribed protection duration (as per Paint Data
Sheet) is exceeded, sweep-blasting should be used for the surface preparation.
Furthermore, it should be understood that when shop-primed surfaces are corroded
to such an extent that they cannot be adequately made rust free by sweep-blasting,
full re-blasting shall be applied.

Paint Application.
Conditions for paint application
No painting shall be carried out under adverse weather conditions such as rain, fog,
snow or under freezing conditions. The dew point of air shall be at least 3C below
the steel surface temperature and the relative humidity shall not exceed 85% during
paint application. Air humidity shall be controlled during application and shall be
within the accepted limits of the applied paints. The manufacturers application
recommendations shall be obtained.
No paint application shall take place if the chloride contamination level exceeds
3g/cm2.
Application methods
Painting work shall be performed by airless spray as far as possible. Roller and brush
shall be used only for touch-ups, minor repairs and markings.
All tanks and in weather exposed areas one (1) stripe coat shall be applied prior to
each full coat. The stripe coating shall be applied to all weld seams, edges, corners,
rear ends of bulbs, fittings, and other locations not accessible or suitable for spray
gun application. Stripe coatings shall be applied by brush.
All steel structure areas where components are attached by screws and bolts shall
be stripe coated before the components are fitted.
During dry-docking before sea trials the underwater shell shall be high pressure
water washed and fresh water cleaned before the application of the last anti-fouling
coat. Salt measurement shall be performed before paint application. All defects shall
be repaired before the application of the final anti-fouling coat.
The water used for cleaning shall be clean, contamination free and have a
conductivity of less than 300 S/cm.
Coating Quality Criteria.
Painted visible surfaces shall be free of sags and runs.

_________________________________________________________________________
The dry film thickness shall be measured after each coat to confirm adequate
thickness. The underwater hull paint thickness shall be checked and recorded before
and after the application of anti-fouling paint. No limitation shall be made on the
location and number of points for paint thickness measurements.
The dry film thickness (DFT) of the paint coats shall be measured by digital
equipment.
In ballast, freshwater, foam and detergent tanks 100% of the specified DFT shall be
achieved at a minimum of 90% of the measured points, at the remaining 10% of the
measured points at least 90% of the specified DFT shall be achieved (90/10
acceptance criteria). For all other painted surfaces an 85/15 acceptance criteria shall
be applied.
The painting should be in line with the below mentioned scheme. The scheme to be
submitted for owners approval.
