JPCL Previews May Issue

THURSDAY, MAY 13, 2021

Following the Journal of Protective Coatings & Linings’ release of its inaugural independent issue in April, staff behind the publication are excited to continue bringing the coatings industry the latest news and top-notch technical content in the upcoming May edition.

Inside the Issue

Since revealing its new look last month, JPCL has flourished in its role as the independent voice of the industry. While the publication continues to boast subscription offers and benefits, JPCL highlights that only subscribers can access the 25-year JPCL digital archive and its wealth of technical information.

“We’ve gotten a lot of positive feedback about the 'new look' of JPCL, and we’re eager to roll out even more changes while still maintaining the technical authority we’ve established since 1984,” said JPCL Editor-in-Chief, Charlie Lange.

Flipping through the May issue, readers can expect to see the continuance of new departments, including:

  • The latest industry news, comments and upcoming events in the “Coverage” section;
  • New project previews and market data in “Bid Bits” from Paint BidTracker; and
  • A fresh “Profiles in Paint” contractor interview.

The second installment of the newly independent JPCL will also see the return of the Applicator Training Bulletin series. The column serves to revisit longstanding industry topics and align them with today’s best practices and new technologies. The bulletin was updated for the May issue by JPCL staff.

In celebrating the retirment of Sherwin-Williams' Senior Vice President of Technology and Integration, the issue will also feature an extended profile on coatings industry leader, Doni Riddle. The profile and retirement send off documents Riddle's 39-year history in the industry and the impact he's made on other industry professionals.

Regarding technical features, Lange reports that the May issue of JPCL will also include the following industry topics:

  • An “out-of-this-world” water tank painting project;
  • The latest coating system options for steel bridges; and
  • Test results of a new non-metallic abrasive material.

“As the new JPCL rolls on, we look forward to continuing to bring the industry the top-notch coatings content it has come to expect,” Lange concluded.

JPCL is part of the Technology Publishing Company’s network of paint and coating editorial products. Related websites and publications include PaintSquare Daily News, Paint BidTracker and Water BidTracker.

JPCL Archives, Subscriptions

Following the release of the April issue, the magazine will be added to the JPCL archive—containing 25 years of JPCL digital issues dating back to 1996—which covers a priceless collection of evergreen information, solutions to real-life problems, case studies, insight from experts and a historical record of the industry.

In 2020 alone, Palmer reported that more than 25,000 industry professionals accessed the archives. However, the content is only available to current JPCL subscribers and in separating from SSPC, is no longer an association benefit.

Interested readers have the option for domestic one-year print and digital edition subscriptions and international one-year print and digital edition subscriptions. JPCL is offering one-year digital-only subscriptions and group subscriptions for domestic one-year print and digital editions as well.
