Narrowing down the vast field of abrasives options—a major factor in the success and cost of coating projects—will be the topic of a free upcoming webinar sponsored by JPCL and SSPC.

Selecting the Right Abrasive” will be presented from 11 a.m. to noon EDT June 13.

Participants may register here free.

Why Abrasive Choice Matters

The wide variation in abrasive types, blasting processes and operator proficiency can mean huge fluctuations in the cost and efficiency of abrasive blasting operations. Choosing the right abrasive can reap significant savings and improve productivity.

Webinar: Selecting the right abrasive

This webinar will describe how to estimate abrasive productivity, consumption rates and costs for specific blasting activities when specifying the type of abrasive to be used during surface preparation of a steel structure.

About the Presenter

The webinar will be presented by Earl Bowry, an Industrial Engineer/Protective Coatings Specialist with Newport News Shipbuilding, in Newport News, VA.

Bowry has been involved in the industrial and marine coating industry for more than 40 years. He has traveled worldwide inspecting ships, consulting with shipyards, and teaching coating inspection and application courses.

His career includes sales, marketing and technical engineering positions with Ameron, Carboline, Virginia Materials and Jotun Paints.

An SSPC and NACE Protective Coatings Specialist, Bowry has authored and presented papers at Mega Rust and at NACE and SSPC conferences, and has authored or co-authored training and certification programs for both organizations.

Registration, CEU Credits

This program is part of the JPCL/SSPC Webinar Education Series, which provides continuing education for SSPC recertifications and technology updates on important topics.

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.
