2.17.2 Dissimilar Materials

**************************************************************************

NOTE: If signs are to have extensive metal parts or are to be anchored to structural steel, include this paragraph. Otherwise edit as appropriate.

**************************************************************************

Where dissimilar metals are in contact, or where aluminum is in contact with concrete, mortar, masonry, wet or pressure-treated wood, or absorptive materials subject to wetting, the surfaces shall be protected with a coat of asphalt varnish or a coat of zinc-molybdate primer to prevent galvanic or corrosive action.

2.17.3 Shop Painting

Surfaces of miscellaneous metal work, except nonferrous metal, corrosion resisting steel, and zinc-coated work, shall be given one coat of zinc-molybdate primer or an approved rust-resisting treatment and metallic primer in accordance with manufacturer's standard practice.

2.18 COLOR, FINISH, AND CONTRAST

**************************************************************************

NOTE: Color shall be specified in this paragraph unless identified elsewhere in finish paragraphs.

Delete color portion if covered elsewhere.

Editing of color reference sentence(s) shall be coordinated with the Government. Generally the

09 06 90 SCHEDULES FOR PAINTING AND COATING or

SECTION 10 14 00.10 Page 17

drawing is used when the project is designed by an

Architect or Interior designer. Color shall be selected from manufacturers standard colors or identified as a manufacturers color in this specification only when the project is very simple and has minimal finishes.

When the Government directs that color be located in the drawings a note shall be added that states:

"Where color is shown as being specific to one manufacturer, an equivalent color by another manufacturer may be submitted for approval.

Manufacturers and materials specified are not intended to limit the selection of equal colors from other manufacturers. The word "color" as used herein includes surface color and pattern."

Prior to specifying a custom color finish, research to determine if additional cost and lead time is feasible. Note there is often a minimum order requirement; this requirement will also affect future orders.

When a manufacturer's name, stock number, pattern, and color is used, be certain that the product conforms to this specification, as edited.

**************************************************************************

Color shall be [in accordance with Section 09 06 90 SCHEDULES FOR PAINTING

AND COATING.] [as indicated on the drawings.] [selected from manufacturers standard colors.] [[______.] Color listed is not intended to limit the selection of equal colors from other manufacturers.] For buildings required to be handicapped-accessible, the characters and background of signs shall be eggshell, matte, or other non-glare finish. Characters and symbols shall contrast with their background - either light characters on a dark background or dark characters on a light background.
