Comment | More

Polyureas, polyurethanes and the latest industry standard for field application of those coatings will be the focus of a free upcoming webinar by SSPC and JPCL.

"Polyurethane, Polyurea and Hybrid Lining Technology," to be held from 11 a.m. to noon ET Sept. 18, will provide an overview of SSPC-PA 14, Field Application of Plural Component Polyurea and Polyurethane Thick Film Coatings to Concrete and Steel, which was released in 2012.

The standard is intended for use by specifiers and facility owners in a manner similar to SSPC-PA 1. SSPC-PA 14 supplements application instructions provided by coating manufacturers to ensure that recommended best practices are followed when applying polyurethane and polyurea plural-component coatings.
