We also break down the feature stories so that we are covering 50 percent commercial and 50 percent industrial applications. It's not an easy balance to strike, but we know it's worthwhile, because although we can never be everything to everyone, we believe that this is the way to get you the right amount of coverage of the overall coatings industry. T he projects that we feature in ever y issue might not overlap w ith what you do 100 percent, but throughout the pages of Coat ingsPro Magazine, you shou ld be able to glean severa l nug gets of infor mation straight f rom your peers' mouths to ta ke back w ith you to the jobsite. If you're a three-man company apply ing acr ylic-based coatings on roof tops, there's a project that might pique your interest. A nd if you're a project manager of a mu lti-bi l lion-dol lar company that recoats steel g irders on br idges, you can hopef u l ly f ind infor- mation in a feature stor y that applies to your company. Four Features To hit that right balance in this issue, we're featuring four projects that tell the story from the hand that holds the spray gun, squeegee, or brush. Covering the roofing substrate is our feature story on 20-gauge metal panels. e applicators sprayed the Stephanie Marie Chizik Editor-in-Chief coating onto this iconic red roof, details of which you can find on page 62. en, we hit the concrete deck with our coverage of two new self-storage facility floors: one reinforced by fibers and one without fibers. at feature is found on page 36. For this issue's steel substrate, we're highlighting various areas around a silo at a concrete mixing facility (page 56). Even the winds off of Lake Michigan couldn't keep this crew down. And to even out the commercial and industrial halves, we're featur- ing a polyurea coating system on a man-made lake in Florida. Life's a beach when you have the right materi- als and necessary spray equipment to waterproof concrete. at article can be found on page 46. Finding the Connection T he point of finding the balance w ith our articles is to ensure that all of our readers can relate to something in each issue. T his is important to us. We want ever y person who picks up a copy of CoatingsPro to connect — to feel as though we're speaking to you. Because we are! So drop us a line and let us know how we're doing. In the meantime, happy coating! CP
