Starting a new thread because I see nothing on MPI ( Master Painters Institute) that is not based within MPI. (AKA I want good feedback, real world stuff not what "they think")

I am trying to see if anyone knows of this and if so how often does it come up?

MPI is Mostly used on larger jobs within the spec's

Better question how often are the spec's on a project followed when it comes down to the paint? Or pending the GC does it really matter?

If there specs aren't followed they don't warranty or pass the job. No pass no pay.

On the commercial jobs I've done the GCs were most concerned about the products specifically matching the specs and didn't care so much about the procedure. I'm sure all GCs are different but that was my experience.

I've never had anybody make me follow an mpi procedure or guidelines on any job so I have not had a problem with them. When I first heard of the mpi
i thought it was ok and thought it might stream line some specs and cross reference products. Most of the job specs I look at that have an mpi number for a product are vague and not too useful. For example mpi#54 show S/W duration,promar 400 pro mar 200 and quali-kote as meeting their standards and would be accepted by an architect for projects. The point being that there is a hell of a quality spread between duration and quali-kote, what ever that is. Just give me the product you want and I can price it accordingly.

That is the biggest issue that I can see with MPI, Why bid a project for duration when "on paper" the pro mar 400 is that same thing
