    Manual Surface preparation – All metal surfaces on all custom body and cabs shall be thoroughly cleaned and prepared for paint. Surfaces that shall not be painted include all chrome plated, polished stainless steel and bright aluminum tread plate. As required, weld seams and other areas shall be caulked to prevent water leaks or for appearance reasons. Each imperfection on the exterior metal surface shall be removed or filled and then sanded for a smooth flat appearance.

     
     

    Chemical Cleaning and Treatment – All painted surfaces shall be washed with a chemical degreaser, cleaner and surface conditioner to allow for proper adherence of primer coat. Then they shall be washed with a neutralizer product. All products used are approved by paint supplier and applied under strict process control to meet performance requirements on corrosion prevention and chip resistance.

     
     

    Primer/ Surface Coating for Top Coat application – a minimum of 2 coats of Epoxy based primer shall be applied to surfaces inside and outside of cabs and bodies and all other parts of apparatus that shall receive a Top color coat to achieve required corrosion protection.

    After that a minimum of 2 coats of sealer shall be applied over the primer surface. The overall thickness of the primer/sealer coat shall be between 3 to 8 mils wet. Once dried and cured all surfaces that shall receive a top coat shall be hand sanded to achieve a flat and

     

    smooth surface to meet gloss and other paint quality standards. All products used are approved by paint supplier and applied under strict process control to meet performance and appearance requirements according with manufacturers Paint Quality Standard. The underside of the cab and body shall be finished with one coat of epoxy primer specifically designed for this application to prevent corrosion and provide chip resistance to typical paved road conditions.

     

    Top Coat Application – Each Top Coat final color on the apparatus is applied using a two stage paint process. The unit shall be thoroughly hand cleaned to eliminate dust residues and to detect any imperfection in the surfaces to be painted. A fast drying 3.5 VOC polyurethane basecoat color shall be applied using a cross coat application technique.

    Additional coats may be applied as required until the coat thickness reaches 2.0 to 6.0 mils wet and a full hide appearance. If a second color is required, proper masking shall be applied to the unit and the basecoat application process shall be repeated for the second color. A slow drying low VOC High Build clear coat shall be applied using a cross coat application technique until a minimum of 5.0 mils wet is achieved. The unit is then properly heated to assure flash and cure of the paint before leaving the paint booth. All products used are approved by paint supplier and applied under strict process control to meet performance and appearance requirements according to manufactures Paint Quality Standard.

     

    Each batch of color topcoat shall be tested for precise color match following paint supplier color matching process. A visual color match shall be checked prior to paint using customer approved paint chips.

     

    The cab and body shall be primed and finish painted prior to installation on the chassis to ensure paint coverage in all areas including the difficult to reach places. The exterior and interior of the cab shall be finish painted before the doors are installed or any assembly is started to ensure a finish painted surface beneath all trim items.

     

    Primer/ Surface Coating for Single Coat application – a minimum of 2 coats of Epoxy based primer shall be applied to all surfaces of the apparatus that shall receive a single color coat to achieve required corrosion protection. This is a wet coat process and it shall achieve a 3.0 to 8.0 mills wet thickness and complete coverage of all bare metal. All products used are approved by paint supplier and applied under strict process control to meet performance and appearance requirements according with manufacturers Paint Quality Standard.

     

    Single Coat Application – A minimum of 2 coats of direct gloss paint shall be applied over all primed surface to achieve corrosion protection and appearance in accordance with manufacturers Paint Quality Standard. This application shall be used for Gloss Black, Job Color and Color finishes in parts of the apparatus such as frame rails, outriggers, ladders and other aerial devices, suspension and other chassis parts, etc. as defined in the sales order.

     

    Zolatone Coat Application – All areas to receive a Zolatone coat shall be primed following the primer/surface coating for top coat application. A high pressure coat of Zolatone paint shall be applied in a cross pattern technique to achieve smooth finished surface. A second low pressure coat of Zolatone paint shall be applied in a single pattern to achieve a textured appearance.

     

     

    Zolatone Clear Coat Application – Starting with a completed and dry Zolatone coat application 2 to 3 coats of Zolatone clear coat shall be applied until a thickness of 5.0 mills wet is achieved.

     

    PAINTERS

    All painters shall be paint supplier certified. They shall be re-certified periodically in order to keep up to current standards and procedures required by the coatings manufacturer.

    This certification is performed independently by the paint supplier.

    FACILITY

    The finishing facility shall be certified independently by the paint supplier by meeting or exceeding its extensive and stringent requirements.
