Coatings and Finishes

Roof and Wall panel coatings and/or finishes are normally Galvalume or Galvanized:

GALVALUME is an Aluminum-Zinc alloy coating per ASTM A792 over steel substrate.

Standard SP20 finishes consist of a 1 mil. [0.025 mm.] baked Silicone Polyester exterior surface, on G30 Galvanized steel, or for Canadian structures, on AZ55 Galvalume steel. The interior surface is coated with an off-white 0.5 mil. [0.013 mm.] wash coat.

Optional KXL finishes consist of a 1 mil. [0.025 mm.] Kynar-based coating applied to the exterior of AZ55 Galvalume steel. The interior surface is coated with an off-white 0.5 mil. [0.013 mm.] wash coat.

Shop Primer

All structural steel frame members are cleaned of oil, dirt, loose scale and foreign matter prior to receiving one shop coat of standard primer paint, in accordance with standard practices.

The purpose of standard shop primer is to provide protection for the structural steel frame members during transportation, during temporary job site storage and during erection.

The shop primer does not provide the uniformity of appearance or the durability and protection of appropriate field finish coat(s) of paint.

Shop primer paint is a rust inhibitive primer paint which meets or exceeds performance requirements of Federal Specification TTP 664c and is light gray color. Primer paint has a gloss equal to 10 – 15 units, 60 degree gloss meter (Gardner).
