Webinar Targets Offshore Fireproofing
Understanding the critical requirements and certification needed to use passive fireproofing materials offshore will be the focus of a free upcoming webinar by SSPC and JPCL.
"Achieving Passive Fire Protection Offshore" will be presented from 11 a.m. to noon ET April 17.
The webinar will outline the fire test standards, environmental exposures and physical property testing that must be met when using these coating systems. The presentation will cover the benefits and applications of industrial epoxy intumescent fireproofing materials and review keys to success when installing these systems.
Participants may register here free.
