Update to SSPC-PA 9 Paint Application Specification
Presenter: David Beamish, President

Discusses the revision of SSPC-PA 9, "Measurement of Dry Coating Thickness Using Ultrasonic Gages." This standard describes procedures to measure the thickness of dry, homogeneous coatings applied to concrete, wood, wallboard, plastic, fiber and composite material using commercially available ultrasonic coating thickness gages.

Pull-Off Adhesion Testing
Presenter: David Beamish, President

The practical how-tos of pull-off adhesion testing, along with the dos and don’ts of this critical test. It also explains the main differences between D4541, which primarily covers metal substrates, and D7234
(Standard Test Method for Pull-Off Adhesion Strength of Coatings on Concrete Using Portable Pull-Off Adhesion Testers), which was spun off in 2005 to address issues related to concrete.

 

 

 

Measuring Adhesion to Concrete
Presenter: David Beamish, President

Explains how to perform an adhesion pull-off test according to ASTM D 7234 and will review and discuss the variables that can affect the results.

 

 

Powder Coatings Institute:

Quality Control and Powder Coating
- Understanding Tools Available and How to Use Them Efficiently

Presenter: David Beamish, President

In today’s competitive environment, customers often choose suppliers that have solid quality control systems. By investing in some basic test instrumentation, coaters can study trends, reduce costs, and retain customers by providing them with documentation showing their ability to meet a required specification. Every applicator should know what equipment is available and know how to use it. This presentation will describe common instruments including environmental, adhesion, color, thickness as well as related ASTM standards.

Durability + Design:

Inspection of Commercial and Architectural Cleaning and Painting
Presenter: Ken Trimber, President KTA-Tator

The performance of a coating on any structure is only as good as the installation. The visual inspection activities and tests required to confirm the quality of cleaning and painting are presented. Inspection activities include review of surface preparation of steel and concrete, ambient (weather) conditions, mixing of coatings, coating thickness, and coating film continuity and coverage.

The New SSPC-PA 17 Surface Profile Measurement Conformance Standard
Presenter: Bill Corbett, KTA-Tator

Organizations including ASTM, ISO, and NACE have published test methods for measurement of surface profile and surface roughness. However, none of these standards describe a process for determining whether the surface profile/roughness characteristics conform to the contract documents. This webinar describes a new SSPC standard intended to fill this void. A brief overview of measurement acquisition techniques will be provided; however, the focus of the webinar will be on the sections of the standard that describe how to establish a process control procedure, and the procedures associated with establishing a frequency of measurement and evaluating whether the measurements conform to the project specification.

 

 

 

Monitoring Environmental Conditions for Cleaning and Painting Operations
Presenter: Bill Corbett, KTA-Tator

Addresses the procedures associated with monitoring prevailing conditions of air and surface temperatures, relative humidity, dew point temperature and wind speed prior to and during surface preparation and coating installation operations.

 

 

Quality Control of Industrial Painting Operations
Presenter: Bill Corbett, KTA-Tator

Controlling the quality of workmanship related to coating application processes includes navigatingthroughmanufacturers’ product data sheets; measuring prevailing ambient conditions and surface temperature; mixing, thinning and application procedures; calculation and measurement of wet film thickness; dry film thickness measurement of each coating layer; and a host of post-application quality control procedures, including cure/hardness testing, holiday/pinhole detection, adhesion evaluation, and identification of application defects. This webinar describes the industry standards, processes and inspection equipment that may be employed to verify conformance with a project specification.

 

Quality Control of Surface Preparation & Coating Installation/Pipe Girth Weld
Presenter: E. Bud Senkowski, P.E., Senior Consultant, KTA-Tator

Field coating of pipe includes surface preparation and application of coatings at the girth weld during installation of new pipe or replacement of existing coatings after excavation of existing pipe. Similar to any project involving coatings on steel, quality control of surface preparation and coating installation is paramount to the integrity of the pipeline. This webinar will describe the common methods of field surface preparation, as well as the quality control procedures and instrumentation associated with surface preparation inspection. The webinar also describes common methods of coating application in the field, along with the quality control procedures and instrumentation associated with verifying the proper installation of protective coating materials. Final quality control inspections performed prior to backfilling will also be described.

 

Polyurethane, Polyurea and Hybrid Lining Technology
Presenter: Dudley Primeaux, Director of Education and Development, Versaflex

Provides an overview of a new industry standard, SSPC-PA 14: Field Application of Plural Component Polyurea and Polyurethane Thick Film Coatings to Concrete and Steel. The standard is intended for use by specifiers and facility owners in a manner similar to SSPC-PA 1. It supplements application instructions provided by coating manufacturers to ensure that recommended best practice is followed when applying polyurethane and polyurea plural component coatings.
