BOATS
Boats are usually constructed of timber, metal or fibre-glass. Boats need to
withstand wear and tear to a greater degree compared to exterior building walls. 
During plying through river or seacoasts the immersed surfaces are subject to
attack by marine organisms. Again the hull portion periodically goes under water
and comes above water (during loading/ unloading/ overhauling period. For this
reason the painting should be very selective.

BRASS
‘Brass’ is an alloy composed mainly of Copper and Zinc in various proportions.
Improved brass alloys may contain Aluminium, tin, manganese or iron to provide
special properties. Avoid painting unless this is essential, as the metal provides
no key for paint adhesion unless thoroughly abraded.

BREWERIES
All surface in breweries are prone to be attacked by bacteria and growth of
mould. In fact, mould spores thrive in the atmosphere because of the raw
materials used in brewing and the ambient moisture. 
For successful painting careful attention must be given to the process of
sterilizing surfaces and the selection of finishes that will inhibit mould growth and
resist frequent cleaning.
