MIL-HDBK-132A, MILITARY HANDBOOK: PROTECTIVE FINISHES FOR METAL AND WOOD SURFACES (09 MAY 1984) [NO S/S DOCUMENT]
MIL-HDBK-132A, MILITARY HANDBOOK: PROTECTIVE FINISHES FOR METAL AND WOOD SURFACES (09 MAY 1984) [NO S/S DOCUMENT]., The primary object of this handbook is to provide a working knowledge of protective finishes, both inorganic and organic, as used by the Department of
Defense for equipment and ordnance. The handbook is not intended to be an
exhaustive treatise on the subject, but rather to furnish detailed information
on the protective finish system and procedures that have proved satisfactory
in service. It is intended to supplement, but not replace, various
specifications and standards for protective finishes used by the military.
The subject matter is about equally divided between inorganic and organic
finishes. The words "paint" and "painting" are used broadly in the handbook
to include varnishes, lacquers and sealers. It is hoped that the Information
contained herein will aid the materiel conservation program by promoting the
use of less critical materials protected with suitable finishes.
