W elcome to our inaugu- ral Steel Surfaces supplement! We're very excited to bring this new resource to your fingertips. We've been covering all things concrete and roof coatings in two of our other annual supplements, so it made sense to us to dedicate a stand-alone issue to the third substrate that CoatingsPro focuses on, too. Steel assets in the coatings world include bridges, ship hulls, pipelines, tanks, offshore platforms, wind turbines, roof surfaces, and more. Depending on location, environ- ments, finances, uses, etc., each one will require a different approach to a protective solution. at's where we come in to help! Cover to Cover If you're new to the industry or new to our supplements, let me give you a tour of what you can expect in this issue. In all of our supplements, which now also include Surface Prep, Equipment, Roof Coatings, and Concrete Covered, you' ll find a roundup pertaining to the specific topic. is one, of course, covers all things steel. at means that you' ll find an overview of steel coatings and other repair materials, equipment needed to complete those repairs, personal protective equipment (PPE) that might be necessary, and application and inspection methods. It includes tried-and-true methods from subject matter experts as well as new products and services being offered in the market today. at article can be found on page 6. We also include a few additional articles pertaining to the specific aspect of the industry — in this case steel. e two articles in this issue pertain to coating. e first is from David Hunter. He gives a few sugges- tions on how choosing the color of the coating in a multiple-coating system may help to ensure proper coating thickness. at information starts on page 20. e second article is from Jon Cavallo, which covers stripe coating: W hat is it, and how should it be done? Flip to page 24 for his insightful article, and see if you can figure out how Cavallo's and Hunter's articles connect. Open to Feedback CoatingsPro strives to get the right information to our readers. is new supplement is just one of the ways that we're doing that, but we need to hear from you to know if we're staying on track. Please let us know how we're doing! And if you have any projects, topics, or comments to share — steel or otherwise — drop us a line. We're here for you: the pros. In the meantime, happy coating!
