FREE WEBINAR - June 25th at 11:30am
Protecting Steel Geometries, Weldments, & Fasteners by Stripe Coating presented by KTA Chief Operating Officer, Bill Corbett
Steel structures are rarely completely flat. Various steel geometries create challenges for high performance coating systems to provide long term corrosion protection. These configurations include crevices, back-to-back members, fasteners (including nuts, bolts, and rivets), welds, corners, severely pitted steel, built-up structural members, and other irregularly shaped surfaces. These configurations are often the first to reveal rust bleed and corrosion, even on newly coated structures. Stripe coating or striping can help slow the onset of corrosion on these difficult to protect surfaces. This webinar 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.
* Describe how SSPC Guide 11 can be used by a project designer to incorporate stripe coating into contract documents.
