Different areas in the nuclear facility require protecive coatings which in addition to having the normal properties should withstand nuclear radiation as well as the rigorous decontamination schedule. At present in our country coating system comprising of inorganic zinc rich primer, epoxy undercoat and top coats all of which are imported are made use of for this purpose by Nuclear Power Board (BARC). Difficulties in procuring these materials, deterioration during transit and other drawbacks have led to the development of these coating systems indigenously. The indigenisation would help not only in import substitution but also in having a strict control over the quality of the product. The physical and protective properties of the indigenously developed system comprising of primer undercoat and finish coat and those of the imported system are evaluated by various tests and the results are presented in this paper.
