Course Description

This course is designed to train applicators in the application of protective coatings by airless spray using plural component spray equipment. The program focus is on the application of two component high solids, polyurethanes and polyurea coatings in a marine/industrial environment on steel or concrete.

Course Content

  • Introduction and overview of plural component spray technology
  • Equipment operational systems
  • Troubleshooting
  • Characteristics of plural component coatings
  • Applying touchup of single coat coatings by brush and/or roll

Benefits of Attending

To train the competency of individuals who operate plural component spray equipment and those who spray protective coatings using such equipment.

After attending this course you will be able to:

  • Discuss the advantages of plural component spray technology
  • Describe a two component high solid, polyurethane and polyurea protective coating
  • Recognize the importance of when and how coatings are mixed on a plural component spray pump
  • Distinguish among the various methods of mixing: manual, at the gun, after the manifold
  • Apply plural component coatings to concrete and steel in a manner that meets the requirements of a given job specification

Course Format

Overview of Fundamentals (Classroom Session)

The classroom session consists of a 6-8 hour review of the fundamentals of plural component spray technology. The review will cover the fundamentals of the process of spraying two component coatings using airless plural component spray pumps (e.g., material ratio; material viscosity; mixing; ambient conditions for application and curing; product data sheets; material safety data sheets; spray technique); equipment operation; troubleshooting basics and lessons learned; coating materials appropriate for plural component spray; quality control basics.

Hands-On Workshop

The hands-on workshop requires each student to operate the plural component pump and explain its operations. Candidates must wear appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) during the hands on workshop and must be able to answer questions in English about troubleshooting in cases where things go wrong with the spray pump operation.


There will be a written multiple-choice exam (25 questions) and the hands on skills workshop. All exams are conducted in English. If a candidate fails an exam, he or she must retake the exam. A total of 70 points is required to pass the written exam.

Those who successfully complete the program will receive a certificate of training from SSPC.

Who Should Attend

Contractors, project supervisors, and craftworkers involved in applying plural component technology.
