SSPC was founded in 1950 as the Steel Structures Painting Council. Today, the nonprofit association is the only one focused on the protection and preservation of concrete, steel and other industrial and marine structures and surfaces through the use of high-performance protective, marine and industrial coatings.
The association’s core products and services include coatings industry standards, technical publications, training and certification courses, painting contractor certification programs, conferences, events and webinars.
Later this month, SSPC will host SSPC 2012 in Tampa, FL, its annual conference and exhibit focusing on protective, marine, industrial and commercial Coatings.
