Free Webinar Highlights Polyaspartics


An overview of the successful use of polyaspartic coating technology will be the topic of a free upcoming D+D Education Series Webinar.

"Polyaspartic Coatings for High-Profile Commercial and Architectural Applications" will be held from 11 a.m. to noon ET Dec. 18.

Polyaspartics are a relatively new class of coatings that have been used successfully in a number of commercial and architectural applications. In situations where return to service and labor savings are important, polyaspartic coatings offer significant advantages over other coating technologies, the organizers say.

The webinar will cover:

  • What a polyaspartic coating is;
  • How polyaspartic coatings are used in corrosion protection;
  • How polyaspartic coatings are used to protect concrete; and
  • The factors for successful application.

Participants may register here free. (A companion webinar, "Polyaspartic Coatings for High-Profile Protective and Marine Applications for Steel and Concrete, will be held from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. the same day.)
