3 Prime Pigments Titanium Dioxide (TiO 2 ) provides excellent hiding power and whiteness available as a solid (powder) or liquid (slurry) Zinc Oxide controls mildew resists ultra-violet light resists yellowing Titanium dioxide is the world's primary pigment for providing whiteness, brightness and opacity.
4 Resins Types: Latex, Alkyd, Epoxy, Polyurethane Binds or glues ingredients (pigments and additives) of paint together Resin provides adhesion to the substrate Resin provides durability & resistance properties: U-V resistance Moisture resistance Chemical resistance Stain resistance Fade resistance Chalk resistance Block resistance
5 Gloss/Sheen Levels Gloss or Sheen of paint refers to reflectivity or how shiny the dry paint film is. There is lack of standards and confusion in the paint industry related to gloss or sheen levels. Gloss is measured at 60° for flat to gloss ranges. Sheen is measures at 85° between flat to eggshell Some paint manufacturers use different terms to define products between flat and semi-gloss: silk, suede, satin, velvet, eggshell, low sheen, low luster, pearl, etc.
7 Alkyd Resin Technology ALKYD (Oil-Based) A synthetic resin made by reacting alcohols and fatty acids Soya bean, linseed, tung-oil oil commonly used Benefits of alkyds: - Superior brushing characteristics - Abrasion resistance - Excellent flow and leveling - Good adhesion - Used in rust preventative paint Alkyds have limited availability and use in California.
10 Acrylic vs. Alkyd Paints These paints have been exposed to the elements for 46 years. Over that time, the PVA (and the alkyd) paints have disintegrated. The 100% acrylic paint remains in remarkably good shape. The paint film is essentially intact, and, while it has chalked and faded, it retains its original green color.

11 Acrylic vs. Alkyd Paints The paint on the left half of each board is acrylic, the paint on the right half, an alkyd. The colors of the paints were identical when applied. After 15 years of weathering, the appearance of the alkyds has changed dramatically. All have lost gloss, faded, and chalked. The acrylic paints, in contrast, have proven remarkably durable with good color retention.
12 Premature Coating Failure DEFINITION: The deterioration of the coating system, or corrosion of the coated surface, more rapidly than would normally be expected under the service conditions.
13 These metals will not rust or corrode unless a conductor between the two metals or atoms is present. Water or oxygen in contact with the metal for a longer period of time is normally the conductor that starts the rusting or corrosion process. Salts in the water will accelerate the process. Corrosion Simply put, corrosion is created when two dissimilar metals at atomic levels come into contact with each other and create a chemical reaction. The new compound is called oxide. In iron it is called Iron oxide. In aluminum, aluminum oxide and in copper, copper oxide.
14 Galvanized Metal White Rust Pure water (rain, dew, condensation) contain no dissolved salts or minerals. Pure water will react with zinc hydroxide quickly to create white rust. Acid or acid rain, will accelerate the deterioration of the zinc finish. Passivators are a coating applied at time of manufacture to protect the zinc.

34 Application Apply the coating system using one manufacturer Apply according to the manufacturer’s recommendations Apply to the Dry Film Thickness (DFT) as stated by the manufacturer Recoat within the window specified by the manufacturer The finish system shall be a solid uniform finish free of voids and pinholes.
37 Other Design Considerations Surfaces should be smooth (e.g. welds) Welding preferred to riveting All surfaces should be well drained Stiffening members should be on the outside surface of tank or vessel
