CHARACTERISTICS & PROPERTIES OF PAINTINGS & COATINGS 1.25 days
  • Paint components. Binders and plastifiers, pigments, fillers, colorants, additives, solvents.
  • Physical characteristics of paint. Fluidity at different temperatures, % solids, lifetime, hardening, drying, safety problems; atmospheric conditions consequences. Paint manufacture and recent developments.
  • Different types of industrial paint:
  • Physically drying paints, oxidative paints, chemical polymerization paints, anticorrosion systems for aggressive environments.
  • Advantages and drawbacks of the different types of paints.
  • Paints for special environments (abrasive, high temperature, low temperature) and for different materials (stainless steel, galvanized steel, aluminum, concrete, etc.).
  • Composition of a paint system (role of coats and compatibility).
PAINT APPLICATION IN INDUSTRY 1.5 days
  • Preparation of surfaces:
  • Rust scales, roughness, surface profile, degree of care, preparation by organic solvents, preparation by high pressure water jetting, wire brushing, blast cleaning, sponge jet.
  • Tests on samples, chemical conversion of surfaces (passivation, phosphating, chromating, oxalating, etc.).
  • Applications:
  • Main paintings parameters: use of brush, rollers, spraying, composition, surface tension, viscosity, temperature, solvent volatility, speed of jet leaving gun, type of jet and regulation, spray gun and equipment handling.
