At work (and at home, for that matter), many of the tasks and responsibilities that we must complete often use basic processes and procedures that are similar to projects that have come before. I bet most floor coating projects, for example, start with an assessment of the moisture level, safety concerns, access, etc. Of course, every project has its own unique set of challenges and, therefore, solutions, but in general, there's a lot that remains the same. Giving you the basics that you can build upon is one of the goals of sharing information in our topic-specific supple- ments, such as the one you're holding. In the coatings industry, there are generally accepted ways to prep, coat, and test on steel, concrete, and roofing materials. And that means that there's basic infor- mation regarding how that may be done. Not Just Basics How tasks and responsibilities are accom- plished is what this supplement covers. How's the steel tank prepped? Could be with some type of containment, scaffold- ing, and abrasive blasting machine. How is the commercial roof coated? Could be plural-component spray equipment or rollers and squeegees. W hether you work on a commercial or industrial project, at height or on the ground, there are pieces of equipment that need to be considered when completing a new or restoration high-performance coatings project. You can find a high-level overview of the basics in the roundup on page 16. at article also includes coverage of one of our other goals with regard to this supplement: to give you up-to-date infor- mation from equipment manufacturers and distributors. Every year, there's a new product coming out that might help you do your job faster, better, and more efficiently. We're hoping to give you some of those updates to help you determine if a new offering is right for you and your crew. Another article that we're sharing in this supplement covers an overview of a good coatings specification and inspection on steel substrates, which includes having the right tools. at comes courtesy of our sister publication, Materials Performance, and can be found on page 30. A lso included in this issue is a story featuring one of the crews that won in CoatingsPro's 2018 Contractor Awards Program. e project includes coatings on the walls, ceilings, and floors at a new facility. You betcha lots of different types of equipment were used on that one! You can read up on that on page 10. Wheels and More W hether your jobs are shaped like wheels, arches, cylinders, or planes, the Equipment Supplement will hopefully offer you something that you can use on projects moving forward.
