ProposalReview 11.4 (Color Identification) for clarification of 11.4.2 c), 11.4.3, and 11.4.4 relevant to painting of couplings, clarifying further which areas are needed to be painted. When couplings are manually painted, there is no need to clarify that bearing face and bevel areas may not be painted. However, with some automatic methods, painting these areas may unnecessarily increase the complexity of the installation. Such areas may not need to be painted for identification as enough cylindrical surface is available and are protected for corrosion because of being previously phosphatized.
