NFPA 35 brings you up-to-code on hazard protection in manufacturing facilities that handle organic coatings.
Be confident you've covered the bases in industrial hazard control with NFPA 35: Standard for the Manufacture of Organic Coatings. From the building design phase through safe operation, maintenance, inspection -- and including emergency planning -- this Standard has the requirements you need to keep people and facilities protected. Requirements address any facility that manufactures organic chemical-based coatings, such as paints and inks for automotive, industrial, institutional, household, marine, printing, transportation, and other applications.
Designers, engineers, facility managers, and inspectors can make sure nothing is overlooked with NFPA 35 chapters on:
- Building construction
- Process equipment and operations
- Material storage and handling
- Special hazards
- Control of ignition sources
- Management of fire hazards
- Fire protection
- Training and emergency planning
- Inspection and maintenance
The 2016 edition includes important changes:
- New definition of "static dissipating" clarifies the use of the term within the context of the coatings manufacturing industry.
- Clarified building feature requirements -- such as for basements, doors, and windows -- help users verify plans and accurately conduct inspections.
- Without changing the intent of the Standard, exceptions are now written in mandatory language to comply with the NFPA® Manual of Style.
NFPA 35 is vital for anyone involved with design, construction, operation, or maintenance of facilities that produce flammable and combustible organic coatings. (Softbound, 28 pp., 2016)
