JPCL has just published its 24th annual Coatings Systems Buying Guide, featuring more than 5,200 recommendations for protective and marine coating and lining systems provided by more than 250 manufacturers.

The free, fully searchable, digital Buying Guide is intended as a resource for facility owners, third-party specifiers, contractors, and anyone else on the ground in a coatings project.

 JPCL, October 2011 cover
The 24th annual issue features more than 5,200 protective and marine coating and lining systems.

A long-respected reference for the coatings industry, the JPCL Coatings Systems Buying Guide features thousands of systems for use in bridges; chemical, petrochemical, food, pharmaceutical, wastewater treatment and power plants; marine and offshore vessels and structures; waterworks; transmission pipelines; railcars; and the waterfront, lock and dam industry.

Anti-graffiti, fire-resistant, heat-resistant and anti-foulant coatings; shop primers; concrete surfacing materials and other specialty systems are also included.

Recs and Specs

The Buying Guide helps users identify company-recommended systems for particular industries, exposures, substrates and specialty functions. Company Profiles give complete contact information for each manufacturer.

“The Buying Guide is in no way intended to replace the hard work of research and all the other efforts that go into specifying a coating system for a particular project,” said Karen KapsanisJPCL Editor-in-Chief. “Nor do manufacturers’ recommendations listed within this Guide constitute specifications or guarantees.”

However, she added: “The Buying Guide should get you to the manufacturers, whom you should always consult for proper use of their products.”

JPCL limited companies to selecting one system for each exposure and substrate, Kapsanis noted, although many companies have more than one system for any given application.

Organization

Per the Table of Contents, the Buying Guide is arranged alphabetically by industry and, within that, by combinations of exposure environment and substrate. Within each exposure environment and substrate category, companies are listed alphabetically; each listing includes the manufacturer’s recommended system, by trade name (brand) or number and by generic type.

For example, under Bridges, readers will find Exterior Weathering—Mild/Moderate, then individual listings for steel and concrete substrates.

The guide is organized by industry, such as bridges, and by exposure and substrate.

Under Wastewater Treatment Plants (Municipal), readers can look under Interior Exposure Environment for steel substrates, concrete walls and ceilings, or concrete floors.
 
In addition, coatings systems for the Pulp and Paper industry appear in the digital version of the Buying Guide, but are not included in the print edition, in the October 2011 issue of JPCL.

A “Specialty Function” section appears at the end, arranged alphabetically by the coating system’s function.

Online Additions Invited

The Buying Guide is based on a questionnaire that was sent electronically to all coating manufacturers known to JPCL. No effort was made to verify information submitted.

Companies that would like to be listed in the online edition should email Anita Socci, Directory Manager, or call 800-837-8303, ext. 136.
