SSPC recently announced the launch of a new Commercial/Light Industrial Interest Group that will focus on developing standards and guides related to surface preparation, coatings selection and coatings application for this sector. What do you believe is the most important need in this market?

I personally feel that the SSPC contractor certification programs are HIGHLY overpriced and mis-used by the goverment on a lot of federal projects. I see no need for such a certification as SSPC QP1 for a commercial contractor who's only painting sheetrock walls and ceilings, metal doors and frames and the occasion set of steel handrails! This certification requires thousands of dollars to acquire and thousands more each year to renew and I feel that this is money better spent on other things!

By far the most critical factor in obtaining longevity of coatings, is to Stabilize the Concrete before attempting any application of coatings. A concrete that has been waterproofed will not only protect the interior of the matrix and embedded steel members, but it will also stop internal concrete chemistry from migrating out to a surface and reacting with an atmosphere and the coating. The thousands of dollars and time being spent on preparing a surface for a coating, is admirable, but largely ineffective if the substrate is allowed to off gas for years. It takes time to gain a better understanding that concrete is a very dynamic and unstable material that will for years create problems, if it is not Stable!!
