JPCL: Journal of Protective Coatings & Linings will expand its veteran coatings buying guide this fall into a new series of 10 eBooks featuring selection and specifying advice for unique industry segments.

The annual JPCL Coating Systems Buying Guide will be published Oct. 13 in print, with a searchable version posted on paintsquare.com. The guide will feature thousands of coatings options from hundreds of manufacturers, as well as company profiles of participating suppliers.

Those resources will also be incorporated into the eBook series, enhanced by customized selection and specification advice targeting bridge, marine, wastewater, water, chemical, power, offshore, transmission pipeline and other industry segments.

The eBooks will include industry-specific coatings specification and selection advice from JPCL.

“By customizing JPCL’s protective and marine coatings expertise for unique industry segments and delivering these digital resources free, we will support every facet of the industry, including our regular JPCL readers,” said Karen A. Kapsanis, Editor-in-Chief of JPCL, the voice of SSPC: The Society for Protective Coatings.

Availability, Free Listings

The series will be available in early October. The eBooks will be provided free to large groups of facility owners, contractors and engineers, numbering in the thousands, in each industry.

They will also be offered free by eblast to new JPCL readers, who will be able to download them from the link provided. Each eBook, about 30 pages long, will also be offered for sale on paintsquare.com at a later date.

Coatings manufacturers may submit free listings of their products for the Buying Guide and eBook series until Sept. 1.

Multiple Industry Segments Served

The guide will include coatings for bridges, highways, waterworks, locks, dams and other public works, as well as wastewater treatment in municipal facilities. Private industry segments include transmission pipelines, chemical-petrochemical, marine, power, offshore, food and pharmaceutical, and railcar.

Additionally, there are several specialty function areas, such as antifoulings, fire-resistive coatings, and anti-graffiti coatings.

The guide is organized by industry, then by substrate, and finally by exposure environments. Under each exposure environment, participating suppliers list the coating system they recommend for the exposure. 

Selection, Specifying Expertise

Coatings selection and specifying advice in the eBooks will be derived from articles published previously in JPCL. These articles tend to be broad guides on selecting coatings by generic type to match their performance profiles with exposure conditions in an industry.

A typical example is “From New Construction through Plant Operation: An Overview of Protecting Chemical Plants,” by Luke Clark, a NACE-certified Coatings Inspector and SSPC Certified Protective Coatings Specialist. The article details evaluation parameters, condition assessment, project-specific procedures, maintenance painting and coatings for new construction.
