The subject of this short course Coating & Painting Inspection – Fundamentals is to show a basic resume with practical and comprehensive concepts of specialized industrial painting activities as: Surface Preparation, Coatings Application, Color Systems, Coating & Painting Inspections and Personnel Training for students, technicians, contractors, inspectors and engineers.
Painting quality control is the middle of the personnel doing the work. However, quality control is, sometimes, in conflict with getting the job done and completed in the time specified or required, but in the real world, even the best contractors may sacrifice some quality for the sake of the bottom line dollar. Unfortunately, some Owners can often put getting their systems back, over quality, and force the Contractor to take whatever steps are necessary to complete the project on time, even over the warnings of the engineer or technical inspector due lack of quality.
The Contractor should always employ a coating inspector to insure their coatings comply with the specifications or if lacking specifications comply with general industry standards for good coating practices. In industrial painting activities, this is often the responsibility of a third party Inspector. It is the coating inspector’s job to verify that the work complies with the project documents, Quality Assurance and specifications to avoid legal situations in a future time.
A qualified technician or accredited engineer in coating & painting inspections should be always consulted to give satisfactory solutions according to the Standard codes. The inspection reports can become legal documents. All reports should be complete, legible, signed and dated.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
