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.
“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.

Free Coatings Webcasts Available
Numerous free webcasts are now available at www.paintsquare.com/webinars. Among the recent presentations:
“Field-Applied Fluoropolymer Coatings for Bridges,” presented Feb. 8, discussed the use of FEVE fluoropolymer coatings as topcoats on bridges. The webinar also reviewed Japan's experience with using fluoropolymers as topcoats on bridges.
“Illumination of Industrial Painting Projects,” presented Jan. 18, provided information on the quantity and quality of lighting on industrial painting projects that is most conducive to achieving quality surface preparation and coating application, productivity, inspection and other quality control activities, and accident prevention.
“Calculating Coating Lifetime Costs,” presented Dec. 19, helped untangle the complex considerations involved in determining a coating’s true cost. Presenter Jayson Helsel, of KTA-Tator Inc., explained how to identify coating systems for various service environments, estimate their service lives, calculate the installed cost, and determine the most cost-effective system on a long-term basis.
“Comparison of Documentation, Hold Point and Quality Control Training Requirements in Various SSPC Contractor QP Standards,” presented Dec. 14, provided an overview of SSPC’s QP standards that are used in the Painting Contractor Certification Program (PCCP) and described the scope and content of QP 1, QP 3, QP 6, and QP 8. The webinar also explained requirements for training, hold point observations, and QC documentation.
“Practical Coating Thickness Measurement Overview,” presented Dec. 6, focused on factors that influence coating thickness measurement, along with a streamlined means of normalizing and verifying gauge accuracy. The presenter was Paul Lomax, of Fischer Technology Inc.
“Aerial Lift and Scaffold Safety,” presented Nov. 30, focused on the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s requirements for use of scaffolding and aerial lifts in the construction industry. The presenter was Stan Liang, a Certified Industrial Hygienist and Certified Safety Professional with KTA-Tator Inc.
“Spot Repair and Priming as an Alternative to Full Coating Removal,” presented Nov. 16, reviewed the design of spot repair (as opposed to full coating removal) and described the benefits of this coating option in terms of economics, corrosion control and aesthetics. The presenter was Tony Serdenes, Regional Vice President/ Director of Coatings for Greenman-Pedersen Inc. and a 30-year veteran of the coatings industry.
