2010 Annual Coating Systems Buying Guide

by JPCL Staff

The 2010 JPCL Coating Systems Buying Guide lists more than 4,000 recommendations for protective and marine coating and lining systems provided by more than 200 coating manufacturers. Suitable high-performance coating systems for steel or concrete on bridges, power plants, transmission pipelines, and eight other types of industries, structures, or vessels are detailed, as well as systems for half a dozen specialty functions. The 2010 Guide is organized differently than previous Guides. This year, listings are alphabetized by company name instead of first coat, and in addition to the generic type, recommended coating systems now include a manufacturer's brand name or product number. The Guide is intended as a resource for facility owners, third-party specifiers, contractors, or others involved in protective and marine coatings projects.
