Polyaspartic coatings are a relatively new class of coatings that have been used successfully in a number of high profile protective and marine applications for steel and concrete. In situations where return to service and labor savings are important, polyaspartic coatings offer significant advantages over other coating technologies. This seminar will cover several learning points:

(1) What is a polyaspartic coating

(2) How are polyaspartic coatings used in corrosion protection

(3) How are polyaspartic coatings used to protect concrete

(4) What are the factors for successful application
