Painting: New Construction And Maintenance
course provides painting guidance to engineering, operations, maintenance, and
construction personnel and other individuals responsible for the protection
of structures based on the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Engineer Manual on
Painting - New Construction And Maintenance. It gives broad-base instructions
on corrosion and corrosion protection using protective coating and state-of-the-art
procedures that can be employed on Corps and other civil projects, which can
aid in attaining better and, from a long-range viewpoint, more economical paint
jobs. Although this manual is not intended to be a general textbook on coatings
and coatings application, the complexity of the modern coatings field justifies
something more than a bare, utilitarian approach to the presentation of useful
information. Therefore, moderately detailed discussions of coating materials
and characteristics of applied coating systems are included, even though their
immediate usefulness may not be apparent to those who are interested only in
"practical" information. Materials such as galvanizing, metallizing, and protective
tapes are also discussed even though they are not commonly considered paints
or coatings. The inclusion of these subjects illustrates that the protection
of metal surfaces cannot logically be divided into precise, independent subjects.
Because this manual will be used extensively as a reference it includes a complete
topic index to facilitate locating specific information. In addition, Appendices
will help locate references to particular standard specifications.
This course includes a multiple choice quiz at the end.
At the conclusion of this course, the student will:
You will be directed to the US Army Corps of Engineers' website to study Engineering and Design - Painting: New Construction And Maintenance (April 1995 edition, 159 pages, PDF file format). This engineering manual discusses in details about the corrosion, painting and related regulations.
This course provides painting guidance and gives broad-base instructions on corrosion and corrosion protection using protective coating and state-of-the-art procedures. It covers wide range of topics on corrosion theory, and corrosion protection, paint materials, procurement, and testing, coating types, coating characteristics and coating system selection, maintenance painting, surface preparation, coating application and coating inspection, and safety, environment and worker portection regulations.
Once you finish studying the above course content you need to take a quiz to obtain the PDH credits.
