A look at the newest plural-component spray technology used to apply today's high-solids protective coatings will be the focus of a free upcoming webinar by SSPC and JPCL.

"Advances in Plural-Component Equipment Technology" will be presented from 11 a.m. to noon ET May 1.

This webinar will cover new advances in plural-component equipment technology and provide contractors with information on how to select the proper equipment for their protective coatings projects.

Graco plural-component spraying

"Advances in Plural-Component Equipment Technology" will discuss the use of the latest equipment for applying high-solids protective coatings.

The protective coatings industry is trending toward high-solids materials formulated with less solvent that reduce VOC emissions. Their fast-curing times speed production and allow a quick return to service after routine maintenance.

As plural-component protective coatings become more advanced, contractors are faced with several decisions: Should I invest in two-component spray equipment to apply these coatings? Should I hand-mix the materials and apply them with a single-component sprayer? Do I avoid the hassle and skip bidding on the project all together?

This webinar will answer these and other questions.

Participants may register here free.
