Overview
Design:
One-of-a-kind Portable Paint Booth Modules (PPBM) for
C-130 Wheel Wells for OO-ALC/MABP
Downselect and Procure:
Off-the-Shelf Plural Component Paint Dispensing
Systems (PCPDS) and paint booth modules for MABP
Procure and Implement Turn-key System
Procure, deliver, conduct training and implement booths
and paint units at OO-ALC
Report:
Provide business case to justify full implementation of
PCPDS
BUSINESS SENSITIVE
History and Scope
• FY2001 Battelle Completed PSOA on Painting for OOALC/EM (now 75th CEG / CEVC)
• Identified significant savings from installation of plural
component paint dispensing systems (PCPDS), and
quick curing paints
• One unit was procured for F-16 wheel well painting
BUSINESS SENSITIVE
History and Scope
• New Mindset: Building 225 transformation project
– Battelle and Standard Aero
– Cellular layout (everything stays w/ the plane)

BUSINESS SENSITIVE
History and Scope
• MABP requested design of PPBM to conduct
painting of wheel wells at any time during
maintenance cycle
• ASC/ENVV with Battelle Contractor Support
successfully advocates for Pollution Prevention
funding for FY04 to qualify PCPDS (paint) and
PPBM (booth) systems.

History and Scope, Out of Cycle Painting
– Out-of-sequence or out-of-cycle approvals are based on the Aerospace
NESHAP. These represent touch-up and repair exemptions for painting that
can only be efficiently performed while the aircraft is in a disassembled state
in a maintenance area outside of a paint booth.

History and Scope
• C-130 Wheel Well Painting Issues
– Current “line” painting is allowed in the maintenance
bays if painted area does not exceed 16 ft2, and is <15
minutes in duration
– Painting occurs on graveyard shift with out incident for
most out-of-cycle painting -- do not directly impact
production
– Full (NAVY) Wheel Well painting requires evacuation of
maintenance area and opening of hangar doors
– Directly affects F-16 work by displacing mechanics in
bldg. 225
– Lost productive man-hours on F-16 line are
estimated at 1,650/yr.
– Requires extensive masking and clean up

How to address C-130 WW issues
Need ability to paint Wheel Wells at any time without
affecting other work, increase efficiency, and
decrease waste.
Answer:
– Portable, contained systems to fit right, left and nose
landing gear wheel wells
– Portable environmental control equipment capable of
removing nearly all contaminants from exhaust air,
including VOCs
– Incorporation of common filters for easy maintenance
– Incorporation of Alodine and rinsewater catch basin
– Select and procure COTS plural component paint
dispensing equipment

Design, Downselect and Fabrication
Plural Component Paint Dispensing Syst.
• Compiled baseline of material usage
• Reviewed COTS PCPDS (paint) equipment
• Completed downselect for wheel well and other
select applications
BUSINESS SENSITIVE
Design, Downselect and Fabrication
Plural Component Paint Dispensing Syst.
• Graco ProMix Easy selected
Electronic two-part proportioning
A) Paint and B) Catalyst
Highly accurate, eliminates
rework
Easy to use and maintain
Provides estimated 90% reductions
in labor and waste paint and
75% reductions in
solvents in most cases

Next Steps
• Recently completed update to Business Case
for (a) C-130 Wheel Well and (b)
implementation on C-130 Hangar and small
parts painting
• Generate final report
• Initiate talks to procure more systems across
C-130 painting operations, as part of
transformation
