JPCL Magazine

The Journal of Protective Coatings & Linings

The Voice of SSPC and the journal of record for the protective coatings industry, JPCL, is focused on the technology, specification, and application of protective and marine coatings.

Each month, JPCL delivers reliable, non-biased information on new technology and good practice in the use of high performance anti-corrosion coatings and linings for steel and concrete structures - bridges, ships, oil and gas facilities, offshore platforms, power generation facilities, water storage and treatment, wastewater treatment, pipelines, railcars, and every type of industrial plant.

JPCL is the flagship publication from Technology Publishing Company, a key partner of SSPC. All SSPC members enjoy either a printed or digital version of JPCL each month as a benefit of membership.
