SSPC Issues Revised Glossary of Protective Coatings Acronyms and Terms
SSPC has issued a revised electronic version of its protective coatings glossary. This searchable electronic document includes over 1,500 technical and general industry terms for use by facility owners and their engineering personnel; specification writers; construction contractors and subcontractors; manufacturers of raw materials, finished products for cleaning and coating, and surface preparation and application equipment; and coating industry consultants.
In addition to general coating terms and terms associated with failure analysis, key terms for bridges, marine structures, and concrete work are also found within the glossary along with pertinent terms from health, safety, and environmental protection regulations that affect coating operations.
A comprehensive acronym list complements the protective coatings terms. Clicking on the book-marked links accessed through the left-hand panel helps users navigate through the glossary from A-Z.
The glossary is only available to SSPC Members, who may access the document by logging in to the Members Only Section of the SSPC Website.
