Eric Kline, executive vice president of KTA-Tator Inc. and senior consultant at the firm, will present the webinar, “Overcoatability of Existing Coating Systems,” on March 25. The webinar, scheduled for 2:30-3:30 p.m., is one of 20 planned webinars in the SSPC/JPCL Webinar Series on Education in Protective Coatings.
Participation in the webinar is free, but for those who wish to receive continuing-education credits from SSPC, a test is available following the webinar. The cost of the test service is $25. A certificate of attendance will be given to all participants.
Kline is a frequent lecturer for SSPC and a prolific writer for the Journal of Protective Coatings and Linings (JPCL) and other publications. He has first-hand experience in consulting on and writing specifications for projects involving overcoating of existing coating systems that contain lead.
Kline will explain and discuss the pros and cons of overcoating, the good economics and improved aesthetics that can result, and conversely, the increased risk of premature failure that can accompany the practice.
Methods of assessing the condition of existing coatings will be described, and interpretation of assessment results will be explained. Application and use of test patches that can assist in the decision on overcoating will also be reviewed.
