Comment | More

Navigating the demands of SSPC’s long-awaited overhaul to PA 2 will be the topic of a free upcoming webinar by SSPC and JPCL.

The New PA 2: Procedure for Determining Conformance to Dry Coating Thickness,”  set for 11 a.m. to noon EDT Oct. 17, will delve into the specifics of the newly revised coating thickness measurement standard.

Webinar: SSPC-PA 2

The presenter will be Bill Corbett, of KTA-Tator Inc., who chaired the committee that overhauled the standard.

First published in 1973, the standard has had only editorial revisions until its recent overhaul. The extensive changes have been called long overdue.

The revised standard focuses on the frequency and acceptability of measurement acquisition, while leaving gage usage procedures to ASTM D7091. The webinar will describe the new PA 2, including eight appendices that provide guidance for special applications of the standard. The basic content of ASTM D7091 will also be described.

Participants may register here free.
