Are you new to the coatings industry and wanting to learn the basics? If so, you’re in luck, as this year’s AMPP Annual Conference and Expo features a Coatings 101 Workshop that provides an overview of an industrial protective coatings project. Workshop participants will gain knowledge of the various factors that constitute such coatings projects, including design considerations, materials selection, surface preparation guides, ambient conditions, and basic quality control techniques.
Through this workshop, participants will gain a basic understanding of how protective coatings are specified and applied to meet the goals of a project. It will include a discussion of corrosion, good design, good paint, good specifications, good contractors, good inspection, and good maintenance. In addition, the workshop will review and present typical inspection instruments used on a paint project and surface preparation guides, as well as teach participants how to read a product data sheet and measure ambient conditions.
The workshop will be presented by Charles Brown, Chris Farschon, and Michael Baase of Greenman-Pedersen, Inc. (GPI), a sustainable and innovative engineering design and construction solutions firm. At GPI, Brown serves as deputy director of coatings, Farschon as senior consultant, and Baase as senior project manager.
Scheduled for Wednesday, March 9, the Coatings 101 workshop will be held in Room 208 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. local time.
The AMPP Annual Conference + Expo will feature a Career Fair that brings together prominent companies and potential employees.Read more
