PART 3 EXECUTION
 
3.1
EXAMINATION
A.
Examine all substrates and conditions, with contractor, Engineering representative present for compliance with requirements for maximum moisture content, surface soundness, and other conditions affecting the performance of the Work.
1.
Moisture content of concrete, masonry, wood, and gypsum board substrates should be appropriately tested using current technology moisture meter equipment. Moisture levels should comply with manufacturers' requirement.
2.
Plaster, Concrete, CMU Joint mortar, and all other curable materials shall have full cure properly tested for and confirmed.
B.
Do not begin application of coatings until substrates have been properly prepared, examined, and conditions properly reported. Notify Architect of unsatisfactory conditions or areas where specified surface preparation cannot be achieved.
C.
If substrate preparation is the responsibility of another installer, notify Architect of unsatisfactory preparation. Proceed with work only after conditions have been corrected, and approved by all parties, otherwise application of coatings will be considered as an acceptance of surface conditions. Beginning coating application constitutes contractors acceptance of substrate and conditions.
D.
Identify all shop primed items and previously painted surfaces and provide preparation procedures for review and approval.
3.2
SURFACE PREPARATION:
A.
General:
1.
The surface must be dry and in sound condition. Remove oil, dust, dirt, loose rust, peeling paint or other contamination to ensure good adhesion.
a.
Remove incompatible primers and prime substrate with compatible primers or apply a tie coat as required to product the coating system indicated.
b.
Previously coated, existing surfaces shall be identified and existing coating type confirmed. In the event that the existing coating cannot be confirmed consult with the manufacturer and submit tie coat alternative solutions.
2.
Follow all surface preparation guidelines for new construction. In the event of a discrepancy consider the more effective surface preparation as the default method.
3.
Verify that the atmospheric conditions are within the acceptable temperature, humidity and sun exposure limits.
a.
Dehumidification must be utilized in the event that atmospheric conditions cannot be maintained.
4.
Adhere to manufacturer's recoat time surface preparation requirements.
a.
Surfaces exhibiting rust bloom, moisture weeping, or any other deleterious condition shall be sufficient repaired prior to the application of coating or lining system. Repair methods include necessary mean to meet original specification requirements, including abrasive blasting as needed.
5.
Remove any residual dusting or light surface contamination from prepared surfaces prior to the application of the coating system.
6.
Protect all surfaces not being coated from any damage due to surface preparation work process.
7.
Paint all inaccessible items before being assembled.
8.
Remove mildew before painting by washing with a solution of 1 part liquid household bleach and 3 parts of warm water. Apply the solution and scrub the mildewed area. Allow the solution to remain on the surface for 10 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with clean water and allow the surface to dry 48 hours before painting. Wear protective glasses or goggles, waterproof gloves, and protective clothing. Quickly wash off any of the mixture that comes in contact with your skin. Do not add detergents or ammonia to the bleach and water solution.
9.
Install coating systems to only properly prepared surfaces.
B.
Abrasive Blast Cleaning:
1.
Blast cleaned surfaces shall match the standard samples available from the NACE Standard TM-01-70, Visual Standard for Surfaces of New Steel Air Blast Cleaned with Sand Abrasive and TM-01-75, Visual Standard for Surfaces of New Steel Centrifugally Blast Cleaned with Steel Grit.
2.
Remove all oil, grease, welding fluxes, and other surface contaminants by solvent cleaning per SSPC-SP1prior to any mechanical surface preparation.
3.
Sharp edges shall be rounded or chamfered, and burrs and surface defects and weld splatter shall be ground smooth prior to blast cleaning in accordance with NACE SP0178-07, Design, Fabrication, and surface Finish Practices for Tanks and Vessels to Be Lined for Immersion Service.
4.
The type and size of abrasive shall be selected to produce a surface profile that meets the coating manufacturer's recommendation of the particular product and service conditions. Abrasives for submerged and severe service coating systems shall be clean, hard, sharp cutting crushed slag. Metal shot or grit shall not be used for surfaces in submerged services.
5.
Abrasive shall not be reused unless an automated lasting system is used for surfaces that will be in non-submerged service. For automated blasting systems, clean, oil free abrasives shall be maintained. The abrasive mix shall include at least 50 percent grit.
6.
Compressed air for blast cleaning shall be supplied at adequate pressure from well-maintained compressors equipped with oil and moisture separators that remove at least 98 percent of the contaminates.
C.
Steel Tanks and Reservoirs:
1.
All lap roof plate edges, both sides, shall be pre-coated. If necessary, primer exposed on exterior of roof may be removed prior to welding. Percolating shall extend at least 4 inches from the plate edges.
2.
Touch up coating shall be done for areas damaged during erection areas not percolated. The contractor shall spot abrasive blast to SSPC-SP5, White Metal Cleaning Standard, before application of coating. Materials.
3.
Curing Period:
a.
Prior to immersion, the completed system shall be subjected to at least seven (7) of curing time with the metal temperature at a minimum of 70 degrees F ( C) in accordance with manufacturer recommendations. Both conditions shall maintain a maximum relative humidity of 50 percent and under forced ventilation conditions that supply sufficient air changes to fully evacuate vapors and fumes from newly installed coatings. Plural component applied lining systems shall be cured for a minimum of 48 hours utilizing the same forced ventilation conditions.
4.
Decontamination of potable water storage tanks.
a.
Clean all interior surfaces of new potable water tanks prior to placing in service with chlorine solution using processes defined by AWWA C651-05.
5.
Volatile Organic Compound Testing of potable water storage tanks.
a.
The completed interior reservoir coating system shall be tested for volatile organic compounds. VOC extraction result must be below CPDH RDL for each volatile listed.
D.
Concrete Surface Preparation for Architectural Environment:
1.
Walls and Ceilings, Poured Concrete, Precast Concrete, Unglazed Brick, Cement Board, Tilt-Up, Cast-In-Place) including Plaster walls, ceilings.
2.
