sspc pa-2 dry film thickness coatings webinars

This comprehensive coatings webinar, written and presented by KTA’s Bill Corbett, is designed to fill knowledge gaps in regards to the SSPC-PA 2 standard to ensure a complete understanding of this important industry standard.

Attendees will learn how to describe the basic purpose and content of SSPC-PA 2, describe the differences between Type 1 magnetic pull-off and Type 2 electronic gages. describe the procedures and frequency for gage calibration, verification of accuracy, and adjustment, describe the number of coating thickness measurements to obtain and how far out of tolerance the measurements can be and still conform to the specification, describe the procedure for determining the magnitude of a non-conforming area, and describe basic content and purpose of the ten appendices to the standard.

protecting steel stripe coatings webinars

This webinar, featuring KTA COO Bill Corbett, will explore corner/weld preparation and stripe coating as a process to protect these configurations, including specification/project design phase options. It will also highlight the content of the upcoming revision to SSPC Guide 11 on stripe coating, published June 2020.

​​​​​​​Attendance will enable the registrant to identify existing configurations that will benefit from surface grinding and/or stripe coating, select which coating layers should incorporate a stripe coat, consider precautions regarding potential excess film-build when stripe coating, and describe how SSPC Guide 11 can be used by a project designer to incorporate stripe coating into contract documents.

abrasive media coatings webinars

This free webinar, featuring KTA’s Carly McGee and Dr. Leah Tipton, discusses the various laboratory tests which are used to evaluate performance, as well as environmental and safety properties of abrasives for the purpose of differentiating abrasives currently available on the market.

Attendees will learn how to identify the various industrial hygiene tests which are used to evaluate potential exposures to airborne containments during blast cleaning, identify the various laboratory tests which are used to evaluate abrasive media performance​, recognize that tests are optional (not required by SSPC, OSHA, etc. standards) and may be conducted for the purpose of leveraging abrasive media marketing and differentiating abrasives currently available on the market.

coating system selection life expectancy coatings webinars

This webinar, featuring KTA’s Jay Helsel & Lake Barrett, builds upon previous NACE International presentations on coating selection and life expectancy. The authors explore the root causes of premature coating failures and provide practical considerations to maximize coating life.  The authors incorporate updated cost data from coatings manufacturers, field painters and shop applied coaters to provide cost per square foot guidelines for unique coating systems.  This information is applicable across multiple markets i.e.  chemical plants, pipelines, storage tanks, bridge and highway as well as ISO 12944 with multiple corrosivity categories for unique geographic environments.
