Master Painters Institute Announces New Product Standards for Specialized Department of Defense Facilities

The Master Painters Institute (MPI), a division of the NACE International Institute, announces the completion of product standards for interior carbon-steel fuel pipes, interior welded fuel tanks, exterior steel systems, and waterfront steel structures. MPI was contracted by Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) to establish the product standards.

The new MPI 500 Series Standards are for use in numerous aspects of work involving specialized Department of Defense (DoD) Petroleum, Oils, and Lubricants (POL) facilities. Initial testing is now complete, and two of the six standards are available to purchase via the MPI Store:

MPI # 500  Epoxy, Interior Steel Fuel Tank Coating, Primer  
MPI # 501  Epoxy, Interior Steel Fuel Tank Coating, Contrast Topcoat

Coating manufacturers can submit products for approval beginning in May 2019.

Following is a description of the new standards:

System MPI# 500 and 501 standards are for interior carbon-steel fuel tanks. This commercial standard is similar to MIL-PRF-4556, “Coating Kit, Epoxy, for Interior of Steel Fuel Tanks,” which was canceled in 2011. Standard MPI# 505 is for interior welded fuel tanks. Standard MPI# 510 is for exterior welded fuel tanks. System MPI# 515 and 516 is designed for waterfront steel structures.

MPI #          Coating Description
500 & 501 (system) Epoxy, Interior Steel Fuel Tank Coating, Primer and Contrast Topcoat
505 Low VOC, Two-Coat Polysulfide Modified Novolac Epoxy
510 Zero-VOC, Self-Priming, Splash Zone Coating (SZC)
515 & 516 (2 coat system)  Non-Zinc Epoxy Barrier Coating, Flexible
Fluoropolyurethane, Steel Structure Exterior, Topcoat

For more information about the new standards or to submit an application for these new MPI categories, contact Terrance Mayes


Professional Tips

There is a limit to the number of coats of paint that a surface can support. As the paint thickness builds up over time, and the coatings get older, they lose their flexibility.

As the substrate (surface) expands and contracts because of temperature fluctuations or moisture, the paint film is no longer flexible enough to move with the surface. Cracking or flaking of the coating usually results.

It is not uncommon to put a coat of paint on a surface that appears sound only to have many layers of paint peel away. At this point the surface must be stripped.
