Voting Begins for Industry Awards


The fall issue of PaintSquare Press is on its way to readers this week, and with it comes the opening of voting in the Top Products section of the inaugural PaintSquare Prestige Awards, honoring the people and products that make the protective, marine and industrial coatings industry work.

Prestige Awards

While two sections of the awards program—Top People and Top Innovations—will be adjudicated by a panel of expert judges, Top Products is a chance for PaintSquare readers to weigh in on their favorite products to use in the field. Using a simple online ballot, readers get one vote each in four categories: Protective Coatings; Specialty Function Coatings; Surface Preparation and Coating Application Equipment; and Inspection/Safety/Access Equipment.
