Free Coatings Webcasts Available
Numerous free webcasts are now available at www.paintsquare.com/webinars. Among the recent presentations:
“Conditioning Atmospheres Inside Tanks for Cleaning and Painting,” presented April 4, focused on how to use heating, cooling, humidification and dehumidification to control the atmospheric conditions required in tanks and other enclosed spaces. The presenter was Brian Peroni, a corrosion and coating specialist with Florida Power & Light/NextEra Energy.
“Writing a Clear Coating Spec for Wastewater Treatment Facilities,” presented March 21, walked specification writers through the steps of developing an effective, comprehensive coating specification for wastewater treatment facilities. These environments carry multiple substrates and multiple exposure conditions that can make developing a coating spec challenging.
