Water, water everywhere...but how to coat around it?

That is the focus of two new free technical eBooks published by JPCL.

Wastewater Treatment Plant Coating Systems and Water Works Coating Systems feature in-depth technical articles and guidance on selecting and sourcing protective coatings for those applications. The two eBooks are the latest in a new series released by JPCL publisher Technology Publishing Co.

The free Wastewater Treatment Plant Coatings eBook includes the article, "Preparing and Lining Concrete for Immersion Service: Steps and Procedures to Avoid Failures."

The entire series, as well as other technical reference materials, is available via free download from The PaintSquare Store.

Wastewater Plant Coating Systems

This eBook features a JPCL article from Robert Maley of Corrosion Probe Inc. on how to prepare and line concrete for immersion service.

"Many engineers, consultants and inspectors do not fully comprehend the idiosyncrasies of lining concrete," notes the author, who then outlines steps and procedures to avoid pitfalls in the process.

The volume also includes JPCL Buying Guide data on selecting and specifying coatings for wastewater treatment plants.

Water Works Coating Systems

This eBook features a JPCL case study on how the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California ensures continuity of water service to its 19 million customers while protecting its 830 miles of pipeline from corrosion.
