Comment | More

Quantum Group

The Quantum Group of Companies will sponsor the SSPC-JPCL Education Series Webinar on “Fire-Resistant Coatings,” one of 20 webinars in the series to be offered during 2010. The webinar is scheduled for March 25 from 11:00 a.m. to 12 noon. The webinars provide continuing education for SSPC recertifications as well as technology updates on important topics.
    
Participation in the webinar is free, but for those who wish to receive continuing education credits from SSPC, a test is available after the webinar. Cost of the test service is $25.
    
This one-hour webinar will be presented by Jay Helsel , P.E., of KTA-Tator, an acknowledged expert who has consulted on large projects involving fire-resistant coatings and who has written extensively on the subject.
    
This webinar will describe intumescent coatings, how they function to protect structures from fire, and how they are classified by performance rating stated in terms of hours of protection in UL fire tests.
    
The advantages and disadvantages of various generic coating types used to produce intumescent coatings will be explained, and several features of these coatings systems will be discussed: coating thickness and number of coats, appearance properties, testing for cure, use of primers, use of finish coats, and comparative performance.
    
Those who wish to participate in the webinar can register at paintsquare.com/education.
