The facade of my late-19th-century, cast-iron office building has been coated several times, most recently in the 1960s. The paint is faded and delaminating, and I want to remove and replace it. How do I assess the condition of the cast iron and coating, repair weakened areas of the cast iron and prepare and recoat the surface?


I am the facility manager for a new amusement park that will operate year-round in a hot, humid environment. Some critical structural steel in the heart of the park needs to be protected from corrosion and at the same time to retain very good appearance properties for as long as possible, since maintenance painting is disruptive. What coating system should I select to achieve the longest useful life, given that cost is a secondary consideration, and how long will this system look good while providing corrosion protection?


When performing maintenance surveys on structures that require coatings under insulation, how do you inspect the condition of the coatings?


When a food plant runs 24/7, even during coating maintenance, tiny airborne food particles can contaminate a prepared surface. How do you identify, prevent and/or remove such contamination before coating?


Is there a definitive relationship between mechanical properties of coatings (such as elongation and tensile strength) and crack-bridging capability?


When a specification calls for removing only loose coating from a masonry substrate, what methods are effective without damaging the intact coating that is left on the surface?


How do you properly coat welded joints?


What is the best way to remove thick-film elastomers from floors and ship decks?


Can water be sprayed onto an IOZ coated surface that has not fully cured due to low-humidity conditions to accelerate the cure?


Is the MEK rub test a conclusive test to check the cure of IOZ coatings?
