-Free Event


In this course, participants will learn about the aesthetic performance of the most common types of topcoats, examine the effects of UV exposure on color and gloss retention, and learn how to select and specify finishes based on expected levels of performance. We will discuss the relevant industry consensus standards governing product selection, surface preparation requirements, and comparative material performance evaluations. Participants will also gain understanding of the complexities of specifying for maximum performance on environmentally sensitive projects.

Learning Objectives:
• Learn how to select and specify high-performance coating products
• Learn how to interpret and utilize industry consensus standards of SSPC, NACE, ICRI, MPI, and ASTM in the specification process
• Understand surface preparation means and methods, and specification requirements.
• Discover how to specify VOC compliant material formulations without sacrificing performance.
