Hello

The intermediate coats, if any, and topcoat shall be mixed, kept at standard conditions during the induction time, if any, applied, as specified in the contractor’s instructions (see 3.5) ...

The way I understand the above sentence is as follows:

The intermediate coats, which are planned or not planned, and topcoat shall be mixed, kept at standard conditions during the induction time, (induction may or may not take place), applied, as specified in the contractor’s instructions (see 3.5) ...

To sum up: One thing is certain, namely, that topcoat shall be mixed, kept at standard conditions and applied, as specified in the contractor’s instructions (see 3.5) ... As for the induction, it may or may not take place. The intermediate coats may or may not be applied. Both the intermediate coats and the induction are unsure.

Do you agree with me?

4.5.3 Preparation of test panels. Steel panels prepared as specified in 4.5.2 shall be primed with the primer, if any, designated by the contractor (see 3.2 and 3.5). If the contractor specifies a high and low limit of film thickness for the primer, two sets of panels shall be prepared, one at the high limit and one at the low limit of film thickness, for the tests specified in 4.6.12, 4.6.13, 4.6.15, 4.6.16 and 4.6.18. The primer film thickness on test panels shall be within a tolerance of plus or minus 12 micrometers (0.5 roils). The primer shall be allowed to dry for the time specified by the contractor (see 3.5). The intermediate coats, if any, and topcoat shall be mixed, kept at standard conditions during the induction time, if any, applied, as specified in che contractor’s instructions (see 3.5) , and allowed to cure for 14 days at standard conditions unless otherwise specified in the test method. Class 1 coatings shall be rolled for all tests except 4.6.3.

Thank you.
