SURFACE PROTECTION

Surface Preparation

All steel components, prior to forming, will be shot-blasted to a SA 2.5 standard surface by means of an automatic centrifugal shot surface cleaning machine. A weld-able primer compatible to the paint system will be applied immediately to a thickness of 10 micron to preserve the surface integrity during the assembly process. After the container is assembled it is shot-blasted again manually to clean all the welds and any other area that was contaminated during the assembly process. Slags and spatters are removed by means of grinding or needle hammers.

Paint

The zinc content of zinc rich primer shall be no less than 65% measured by weight of solid.

Exterior:

Apply one coat of zinc rich primer to 25 mic. DFT. Apply one coat of epoxy primer to 40 mic. DFT. Apply one coat of Acrylic top coat to 40 mic. DFT. Total 105 mic. DFT.

Interior: GREY (RAL 7035)
Apply one coat of zinc rich primer to 25 mic. DFT. Apply one coat of epoxy top coat to 50 mic. DFT. Total 75 mic. DFT.

Undercoating

The whole underside will be coated with 25 mic. of zinc rich primer and 200 mic. of Waxy or Bituminous undercoating.

Total 225 mic. DFT.
