Abstract
The task set was to scrape down, prepare and repaint (3coat system) a selection of exterior timber windows at Scott Base, to very strict environmental protection rules/requirements. ‘Zero Harm’ was the catchphrase. No electric tools. Temps ranged from +1ºC to -17ºC when windchill was taken into account. Never painted at temps below -12ºC. Very low humidity averaging 19-35% so the atmosphere very dry. No rain, only snow precipitation. 24/7 daylight in December, January
