When can spot repair and priming help facility owners and maintenance chiefs head off a full recoating job? That’s the focus of a free upcoming webinar presented by JPCL and SSPC.
“Spot Repair and Priming as an Alternative to Full Coating Removal” will be presented from 11 a.m. to noon EST Nov. 16.
| Spot repair can be an option to full-scale coatings removal.|
The webinar will review the design of spot repair (as opposed to full coating removal) and will describe the benefits of this coating option in terms of economics, corrosion control, and aesthetics.
