2013 Annual Coating Systems Buying Guide

by JPCL Staff

The 2013 JPCL Coating Systems Buying Guide lists more than 4,400 recommendations for protective and marine coating and lining systems provided by more than 300 coating manufacturers. Suitable high-performance coating and lining systems for steel and concrete on bridges, power plants, transmission pipelines, marine structures, and other types of industries, structures, and vessels are detailed, as well as systems for several specialty functions. Listings are alphabetized by company name, and, in addition to the generic type, recommended coating systems 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.
