The webinar will discuss factors that influence coating thickness measurement, along with a streamlined means of normalizing and verifying gauge accuracy. The latest means of evaluating the results and transfer of data into various inspection reports will also be demonstrated.

The presenter will be Paul Lomax, Director of Marketing for Fischer Technology, Inc. Lomax has more than 20 years of experience in the field of coating thickness measurement and is active in SSPC, ASTM, NACE, PCI and other industry organizations.

Participants may register here free.

SSPC is an accredited training provider for the Florida Board of Professional Engineers (FBPE), and Professional Engineers in Florida may submit SSPC Webinar Continuing Education Units to the board. To do so, applicants must download the FBPE CEU form and pass the Webinar Exam, which costs $25.
