Free Webinar to Cover DFT Measurements
Using SSPC’s standard for dry coating thickness measurement requirements will be the focus of a free upcoming webinar by SSPC and JPCL.
"New PA 2: Procedure for Determining Conformance to Dry Coating," to be held from 11 a.m. to noon ET Sept. 25, will describe the content and application of SSPC-PA 2, Procedure for Determining Conformance to Dry Coating Thickness Requirements.
The widely specified industry standard, which was first published in the 1973 Volume 2 "Systems and Specifications," was revised and released to the industry in July 2012. The revised standard focuses on the frequency and acceptability of measurement acquisition, while leaving the gage usage procedures to the ASTM D7091 Standard Practice.
The webinar will also cover the content of multiple appendices that provide guidance for special applications, as well as describe the basic content of ASTM D7091.

Polyurea Standard Webinar Today
"Polyurethane, Polyurea and Hybrid Lining Technology," to be held from 11 a.m. to noon ET today (Sept. 18), will provide an overview of SSPC-PA 14, Field Application of Plural Component Polyurea and Polyurethane Thick Film Coatings to Concrete and Steel, which was released in 2012.
"Polyurethane, Polyurea and Hybrid Lining Technology" will provide an overview of 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. SSPC-PA 14 supplements application instructions provided by coating manufacturers to ensure that recommended best practices are followed when applying polyurethane and polyurea plural-component coatings.
The webinar will be presented by Dudley Primeaux, the director of education and development with VersaFlex Inc. in Kansas City, KS.
The webinar will be sponsored by DeFelsko and VersaFlex.
