Contractors apply plural-component coatings to surfaces ranging from pipes and tanks to bridges and ships, giving unprecedented substrate protection and creating new application challenges to contractors and equipment manufacturers. This webinar will discuss how advances in high solids/short pot life materials in the protective coatings industry have seemingly outpaced equipment that can properly apply them, forcing contractors to carefully assess application methods, including static mixing and mechanical proportioning.
Arthur Webb, Naval Research Laboratory
Arthur Webb is the head of the Marine Coatings Science and Synthesis Section at the Center for Corrosion Science and Engineering at the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington DC. He is responsible for the synthesis, development, testing and evaluation of corrosion control and advanced technology specialty coatings for the U.S. Navy. Mr. Webb has more than 18 years of experience in the coatings industry. Mr. Webb is currently involved in polymer resin research and development and his team is currently developing rapid cure solvent free resins for corrosion control, exterior camouflage, non-skid and antifouling coatings.
He is a member of NACE and SSPC and is regularly featured as an author in Materials Performance and JPCL. Mr. Webb holds four patents in the field of rapid cure and high performance corrosion control coatings. He has received numerous awards in the field of coatings development and has recently received the Navy’s Total Ownership Cost Reduction award for his involvement in the use of “Single Coat” Rapid Cure coatings for extended performance corrosion control on ships.
He holds a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in Chemistry from the California Polytechnic State University San Luis Obispo. His focus areas were the investigation of rapid reaction kinetics and polymer chemistry for coatings and composites.
