This webinar will provide an overview of a new industry standard, SSPC-PA 14: Field Application of Plural Component Polyurea and Polyurethane Thick Film Coatings to Concrete and Steel. The standard is intended for use by specifiers and facility owners in a manner similar to SSPC-PA 1. It supplements application instructions provided by coating manufacturers to ensure that recommended best practice is followed when applying polyurethane and polyurea plural component coatings.
