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.

The presenter will be Tony Serdenes, Regional Vice President/Director of Coatings for Greenman-Pedersen Inc. (GPI). Serdenes is a 30-year veteran of the coatings industry. He has worked as a paint contractor and inspector and now manages a large coatings inspection department for GPI.

Serdenes has also taught several workshops at the SSPC national conference. He is a NACE-certified Inspector Level 3, SSPC BCI Inspector Level 1 and SSPC C-3 Competent Person.

The webinar is sponsored by Montipower, maker of the MBX Surface Preparation System.
