The many critical issues involved in quality control of industrial painting operations will be the focus of a free upcoming webinar presented by JPCL and SSPC.

Webinar: QC of industrial painting operations

“Quality Control of Industrial Painting Operations” will be presented from 11 a.m. to noon EST Feb. 15.

Standards, Processes, Equipment

Presenter Bill Corbett, of KTA-Tator Inc., will describe the industry standards, processes and inspection equipment needed to verify conformance with a project specification.

Corbett will cover many of the issues involved in controlling the quality of workmanship related to coating application, including:

• Navigating manufacturers' product data sheets;

• Measuring prevailing ambient conditions and surface temperature;

• Mixing, thinning and application procedures;

• Calculation and measurement of wet film thickness;

• Dry film thickness measurement of each coating layer; and

• A host of post-application QC procedures, including cure/hardness testing, holiday/pinhole detection, adhesion evaluation, and identification of application defects.

Participants may register here free.
