The purpose of this manual is to provide information to assist painting inspectors with their inspection of the painting of structural steel bridges using a zinc-silicate primer and vinyl topcoat.-It is intended to provide an insight to the complexities of these modern coatings and the difficulties that can arise with their use. The manual includes information about the paints, surface preparations required, application of the paints, and inspection duties. Some of the material presented is of a technical nature and may appear to be of little practical value to the inspector on the job. Experience has shown, however, that a basic knowledge of all aspects concerning the paints and painting operations will prove valuable to the competent inspector. The information contained herein should not be considered as specification requirements but is intended to assist the inspectors in their interpretation.
