TM43- 0139 This manual is published to provide information and guidance to personnel charged with painting and marking equipment for which the U.S. Army has responsibility. It contains instructions for treating surfaces to remove corrosion, and procedures for preventing corrosion by applying protective coatings. Although maily paint systems are covered, special emphasis is placed on the Chemical Agent Resistant Coatings (CARC), because they are particularly effective in resisting corrosion and chemical penetration, and are also decontaminated more easily than are other coatings.
