The list is to be used by field personnel and contractors in selecting commercial
"off-the-shelf" coatings for Navy Architectural and Industrial Maintenance coatings projects as specified using NFGS-09900. NFGS-09900, Paints and Coatings, is the Naval Facilities Engineering Command generic Guide Specification for painting/ coating architectural structures including light industrial applications. NFGS-09900 specifies the Military, Federal and Commercial Item Description (CID) standard paints and coatings to be used in a particular application. The next revision of NFGS-09900 will contain the MPI references and will be effective when issued around October 2000. Decisions on whether to use a particular product will be based on whether it is listed under an MPI specification or not. To have your paint and coating products placed on this list, please contact MPI at (604) 298-7578. Vendors should provide information and products to be tested to MPI within three months. Closing date for this announcement is first cutoff 1 May 2000, second cutoff is 30 June 2000. This notice is not a request for proposals and no contract will be awarded solely on the basis of the responses hereto, or any follow-up information subsequently solicited. . A table listing the Federal paint specifications used in NFGS-09900 that have been matched to an MPI specification can be found on the Internet. CITE: (W-083 SN437584)
