Samples shall be taken by, or under the direct supervision of, the inspector, using all possible caution, skill and judgment to ensure that a representative sample is obtained.
  
 
When sampling paint and paint constituents, take precautions to ensure that the samples are not contaminated or altered by any material not representative of the lot being sampled. Some paints or liquid constituents exhibit a tendency to settle or separate upon standing. Because of this, it is important to ensure that containers to be sampled, no matter the size container, is uniform prior to obtaining a sample. Mark all sample containers with the type of material, lot number, and the inspector's identification number. It is essential that samples of constituents be marked with the chemical names as called for in the given specification. Unless specifically requested, obtain only one random sample from each lot, batch, day's pack or other unit of production. In cases where several small lots are uniformly mixed in a larger mixer or tank, the mixed material shall be considered as one lot.

Whenever possible, obtain samples from original, unopened containers for all types of materials. When constituent containers have no markings distinguishing between units of production, take samples from different containers or storage units in the ratio of two samples for each 10,000 pounds (4500 kg) or portion thereof and blended in equal quantities to form a composite sample. Submit constituent samples only when requested by the Laboratory.

The color of structural steel paint shall be gray (Federal Standard #26373) or brown (Federal Standard # 30045) except when approved by the District Engineer and the following conditions are met:
 
 
 
:1) An agreement with a local entity sponsoring the color is made indicating the local entity shall:
 
::a) Pay for all costs associated with providing necessary test data.
 
::b) Pay for all costs associated with the finish coat in excess of typical costs associated with standard colors.
 
::c) Pay for future costs for applying the finish coat in excess of typical costs associated with standard colors as a condition of continuing the unique color. (The agreement should stipulate that the color will be maintained in the future as mutually agreeable by both parties. The additional cost to the local entity would be determined at that time. Since we require a previously approved "system" be used, the prime coat will be the same as a standard system and should not fail prematurely. If the color fades prematurely and the local entity wants it repainted, they would pay proportionately. If the color fades and the local entity does not want to pay their share, the district would decide when future repainting occurs.)
 
  
:2) Only approved systems from [[106.1 Approved and Pre-Qualified Lists|currently approved manufacturers]] will be considered
+
==1045.3 Acceptance==
  
3) The district or local entity shall provide certified performance data from an independent testing laboratory on samples formulated with the finish coat of the desired color from two paint manufacturers. Following is the data required:
+
Confirm that the paint is on the current approved list and that the paint is within its shelf life. Obtain a certification specific to the batch of paint, with lot or batch numbers, date of manufacture and quantity represented by the certification.  Confirm that the lot or batch of paint has been sampled and approved by the Laboratory. If not, sample the paint and submit it for approval prior to use.  
::a) Physical property and performance of the finish coat as indicated in FS 1045 of the
 
Materials Manual.
 
::b) Duplicate test panels which have undergone accelerated exposure testing as described above, as well as an unexposed control panel shall be submitted to
 
::Construction and Materials
 
::1617 Missouri Boulevard
 
::Jefferson City, Missouri 65109.
 
  
:4) All required data as detailed in 1045 Paint for Structural Steel shall be submitted to Construction and Materials, at least three months prior to the plans due date for letting. Changes after letting shall be submitted to Construction and Materials, at least three months prior to date of desired change order.
+
==1045.4 Sample Record==
:5) Provide a copy of the agreement as listed in Item 1 to the Bridge Unit, at least three months prior to the plans due date for letting.
+
The Laboratory will issue the reports for samples submitted to the Laboratory.  Sample records indicating acceptance for project use will typically state “Prior Approval or Acceptance”, and will include the information provided in the certification, and where the certification is filed.

(a) Appropriate size and type of sample container as given in the following subsections for the type of paint to be sampled.

(b) Appropriate thief or sampling device to obtain a representative sample.

(c) Packaging and labeling materials as described in EPG 106.3.1.2.2 Transportation of Samples and EPG 106.3.1.3 Sampling Supplies.

1045.2 Procedure

Samples shall be taken by, or under the direct supervision of, the inspector, using all possible caution, skill and judgment to ensure that a representative sample is obtained.

When sampling paint and paint constituents, take precautions to ensure that the samples are not contaminated or altered by any material not representative of the lot being sampled. Some paints or liquid constituents exhibit a tendency to settle or separate upon standing. Because of this, it is important to ensure that containers to be sampled, no matter the size container, is uniform prior to obtaining a sample. Mark all sample containers with the type of material, lot number, and the inspector's identification number. It is essential that samples of constituents be marked with the chemical names as called for in the given specification. Unless specifically requested, obtain only one random sample from each lot, batch, day's pack or other unit of production. In cases where several small lots are uniformly mixed in a larger mixer or tank, the mixed material shall be considered as one lot.

Whenever possible, obtain samples from original, unopened containers for all types of materials. When constituent containers have no markings distinguishing between units of production, take samples from different containers or storage units in the ratio of two samples for each 10,000 pounds (4500 kg) or portion thereof and blended in equal quantities to form a composite sample. Submit constituent samples only when requested by the Laboratory.

Packaging must comply with the applicable requirements of Sec 1045.

1045.2.1 Vehicle Constituents

When samples are requested by the Laboratory, ensure that the contents of the container or tank to be sampled has been thoroughly mixed. Fill the sample container, leaving approximately one inch (25 mm) space for expansion. Secure friction top lids with clips or other fastening devices before shipment. Observe shipping regulations when preparing samples for shipment.

1045.2.2 Pigments

When the Laboratory requests samples, open the package or storage container and take a sample at random from the contents.

1045.2.3 Mixed Paints

Sample containers are one quart (1 L), friction top cans and should be filled, leaving approximately one inch (25 mm) space for expansion. The inspector may mark and submit an original, unopened container of paint to the Laboratory in cases where the containers are small, such as quarts (L) or gallons (L). When an original container of paint cannot be sent to the Laboratory and there are no facilities for mixing or shaking the material mechanically, the inspector must ensure a representative sample by the following steps:

(a) Pour off the top liquid into a clean, suitable container having a volume equal to or larger than the one being sampled.

(b) Stir the settled portion of the paint with a paddle, gradually reincorporating the poured off liquid in small quantities until all has been returned.

(c) Mix the paint by pouring it back and forth between the two containers several times.

(d) Obtain a sample promptly so that settling does not occur before the sample is obtained.

NOTE: This process is referred to as “boxing” the material.

When samples are taken during the filling of containers, obtain a composite sample by combining samples taken at the beginning, middle, and near the end of the operation.

Mechanically mix paint in holding tanks or 55 gallon (208 L) drums to ensure uniformity and sample promptly after mixing.

1045.2.4 Submission of Samples

Paint and some paint constituents require special handling. See EPG 106.3.1.2.2 Transportation of Samples and EPG 106.3.1.3 Sampling Supplies for packaging, labeling and marking instructions. Enter a Basic Sample Data report into AASHTOWARE Project (AWP) (see AWP MA Sample Record, General) for each sample of material submitted to the Laboratory. Include all pertinent information necessary to the sample, such as: kind of paint or constituent, batch or lot number, project number, purchase order or "general construction" for warehouse stock, inspector, source, quantity, intended use, contractor, destination, manufacturer's name and address.
