Paint BoothsBecause Fort Hood has such a large amount of equipment that needs to be painted, there are 15 active paint booths to accommodate this need. 11 paint booths are covered under Fort Hood's Permit #24538 and the other 4 are covered under a Permit by Rule (PBR) PBR 106.433. These paint booths must meet requirements for recordkeeping, material usage restrictions, operational and emission limitations, and more. Spray painting of Chemical Agent Resistant Coating (CARC) can only take place in an authorized paint booth. If you are in a motorpool that does not have a paint booth, your unit is only allowed to store up to 1 qt. of CARC paint for touch up applications. If you are going to handle CARC paint, make sure you are using the proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
