Webinar Explores Coatings by Environment


A free webinar detailing which coating system is optimal for a specific project will be held 11 a.m. EDT (8 a.m. PDT) on Wednesday, April 19.

Thomas W. Higginbotham, training manager for PPG Protective and Marine Coatings, will present “Service Environment: What Coating Should I Use?”

Participants in the webinar, which is sponsored by PPG, are eligible to receive SSPC credit.

About the Presenter

Higginbotham develops and implements technical training programs. He oversees third-party training for PPG Protective and Marine Coatings and is an SSPC Certified Concrete Coating Inspector, as well as a NACE Level 3 Coating Inspector.

The webinar will analyze how the proper protective coating system—generally a primer, an intermediate coat and a topcoat, all of which are designed by manufacturers as suitable components for most endeavorscan help to ensure SSPC coating standards are met.

Higginbotham will specifically discuss an important first step: evaluating a service environment to consider stresses imposed the components of a coating system. Once that is gauged, properties for optimum coating performance can be resolved.
