Specifiers who plan to use SSPC coating standards in their project specifications must make informed choices when selecting the proper coating system for a specific project. Most protective coatings are designed to work in systems of several compatible coatings: a primer, an intermediate coat and a topcoat. Manufacturers usually design individual coatings to allow for some mix-and-match among these components to obtain a system that has the desired performance properties for a specific service environment. Therefore, this webinar will discuss one of the first steps in coating selection, which is evaluating the coating’s service environment to analyze the stresses that it will impose upon the various components of a coating system, and thus determine the properties required for optimum coating performance.
