Comment | More

An upcoming webinar, to be broadcast on PaintSquare next Monday (Aug. 19) at 11 a.m. EST, will address surface profiles and how they can be changed by additional blast cleaning. Oftentimes, coatings specifications contain requirements in order to generate the appropriate surface profile to anchor a coating to a steel surface.

Sponsored by KTA-Tator, Inc., the webinar will provide an overview of a research project that involved the preparation of steel panels with different abrasive sizes. The presentation will also examine the potential impact of sufficient vs. insufficient surface profiles, as well as present the results of the research project.

An upcoming webinar, to be broadcast on PaintSquare next Monday (Aug. 19) at 11 a.m., will address surface profiles and how they can be changed by additional blast cleaning. Oftentimes, coatings specifications contain requirements in order to generate the appropriate surface profile to anchor the coating to the steel surface.

Learning objectives otherwise include:

  • Describing the process of generating a surface profile;
  • Recognizing the impact of insufficient or excessive surface profile on coating performance;
  • Describing the process of increasing or decreasing surface profile; and
  • Recognizing the impact of reducing surface profile on peak density/count.

The presenter, Bill Corbett, Chief Operations Officer for KTA-Tator, has worked for the company for 40 years.
