Concrete has been one of the most prevalent construction materials in the world for a very long time. It continues to be used throughout the building arena in one capacity or another: floors, secondary containment, rooftops, pilings, and clarifiers, for example. It's made of a basic mixture of water, cement, and aggregate. We've all seen it, many have used it, but from there, things start to differ. As technologies develop and needs change, not only does the creation of concrete evolve but so, too, does the surface prep, testing, and topping of this wide-ranging material. Each pour is unique, which means that even if we understand the basics, the specific characteristics and challenges will be unique, too. So how can you ever begin to stay on top of it all? We're Here to Help at's where we come in! One of the three main substrates that CoatingsPro covers throughout the year is concrete (the other two are steel and all types of roofs), which means that concrete is important to us. We want to help you gather the basics as well as share updates coming from the industry. In this issue, we're sharing that information through three main articles: our trusty roundup, an overview on the NACE International/ Society for Protective Coatings (SSPC) concrete surface prep standard update, and a few other technologies that might be useful for concrete piles in marine environments. Patches, injections, jackets, and fillers join the overview of coatings, safety, and inspection in the roundup found on page 8. As for the standard 20 years in the making, you may wonder what's new and what's stayed the same. at summary can be found on page 26. Finally, on page 34, we're sharing a paper giving an overview of the differ- ent marine zones and common corro- sion problems in each. The New Year In addition to our regular offerings (e.g., full print issues, online-only articles, quick tip videos, white papers, and more), we' ll be bringing some new information to you all next year. Be on the lookout for a new supplement coming to you in 2019. We already share information specific to roof coatings in a supplement in October, so to round out that third market, we're bringing a supplement that will be related to steel coatings. Here's to a happy and healthy start to 2019 and to staying informed! CP To Always Staying Informed Stephanie Marie Chizik Editor-in-Chief
