New D+D In Depth Released


The latest issue of D+D In Depth, featuring four articles covering topics of zinc coatings, transportation terminal materials, SSPC moisture testing and 2018 color forecasts, is now available online.

Opening the issue is Jordan McMillen, the senior marketing coordinator at the American Galvanizers Association, who goes through the differences between the seven zinc coatings commonly used in construction.

The issue continues with Allen Zielnik, of Atlas Material Testing Technology, and his take on materials selection for transportation terminals regarding the cross between functionality and aesthetic that those spaces must achieve.

Ken Trimber, President of KTA-Tator Inc., discusses the finalized guidelines for moisture testing in walls: SSPC-PA 18, Standard for Visual Evaluation of Pinholes in a Concrete or Masonry Coating.

The issue is complete with In Depth’s second roundup of 2018 color forecasts, covering The Sherwin-Williams Company, Dunn-Edwards Paints, Diamond Vogel, Pratt & Lambert Paints, Benjamin Moore and AkzoNobel.
