Ventilation for Painting in Enclosed Spaces

Ventilation for Painting in Enclosed Spaces

28 October 2013

The purpose of this research has been to collect new data that is representative of current industry conditions in order to develop a predictive tool to better estimate and establish some ventilation performance metrics for effective control of potential airborne hazards to health during shipyard painting processes. Many physical challenges influence the performance of such ventilation solutions including irregular size and configuration of work areas, distance and obstacles between staging areas for air movers and the painting work and variable composition and application of coating methods, coupled with the technical challenges encountered in the use of effective air sampling and test methods for reactant materials with very low short-term exposure limits.
