ELECTROMAGNETIC CONDUCTIVE COATING APPLICATION continued
To prevent damage to conductive paint surfaces, remove tape carefully.
a. Conductive coating surfaces.
(1) Lightly sand surface to be conductive coated. Use cloth (item 48, App F).
(2) Mask parts and/or area requiring conductive coating material. Use tape (item 205, App F).
(3) Clean entire surface of part and/or area to which conductive coating will be applied. Use cloth (item 52,
App F) dampened with methyl ethyl ketone (item 124, App F).
(4) Aluminum surfaces that are scratched and/or have corrosion protective coating damage, shall have a
chemical conversion coating applied (TM 55-1500-344-23). Use corrosion resistant coating (item 66,
a. Mix parts of conductive coating kit.
When mixing quantities less than a kit, mix in same weight proportions to obtain thickness specified
in paragraph 2.34.4.b.
Mix coating material to a smooth consistency. Ensure coating material is free of dirt, grit, skins,
lumps and jelled particles.
(1) Thoroughly mix individual components before combining. Use depressor (item 70, App F).
(2) Weigh base. Add catalyst to base at 9.8 parts by weight, then add solvent at 38.4 parts by weight to
mixture. Mix thoroughly in a suitable container. Use scale.
(3) Pour corrosion resistant coating (item 65, App F) into paint cup.
