Optimisation of maintenance and inspection programmes through risk analysis can be used for coating maintenance. The risk picture can be described by 1) Scenario, 2) Frequencies, and 3) Consequences, for protective coatings. A systematic approach for optimisation of the maintenance programme has been developed.
This paper is a significant update to “Costing Considerations for Maintenance and New Construction Coating Work”1 on protective coating costing and selection co-authored by M. F. Melampy, M. P. Reina and K. R. Shields in 1998. Designed to assist the coatings engineer or specifier in identifying suitable protective coating systems for specific industrial environments.
