Introduction Steelwork has been painted since its introduction as a structural material, and until recent years it was accepted that rusting would take place. A rough first painting, followed by regular maintenance was accepted as normal practice. For many structures it will still be economically correct to use the traditional methods, and these are well known, i.e. wire brush followed by two coats of red lead and one of a good quality finishing coat, and my paper will make no comment. It deals on broad lines with some of the problems encountered by the fabricator which are associated with higher quality systems.
