Te CoatingsPro team is very excited to share the second instal- lation of our stand-alone supplement dedicated purely to surface prepara- tion. We realize how important this one aspect is in the coatings world, so we wanted to make sure to give it some special attention. In case you didn't see last year's inaugural version, let me introduce you to what you have in your hands in print or on your personal device. It's All About the Prep Prep is key. I think about 99 percent of the people I talk to in the coatings industry will agree that preparing the substrate the proper way is one of the most (if not the most) important parts of avoiding a premature coatings failure. W hether it's for a steel or concrete surface, on a rooftop or water tank, in North Dakota or Timbuktu, surface prep matters. We agree that it's important, so we're giving you a great overview of this portion of the project in a format that you can read, share, and then use as a resource. To start, we have several articles full of dedicated surface prep infor- mation separated by types of projects. Check out the roofng article, which was written by Scott Gayle of WeatherStar on behalf of Roof Coatings Manufacturers Association (RCMA). You can fnd his article on page 26. For the concrete and steel substrates, CoatingsPro's very own Jennifer Frakes has written a great overview of the tools of the trade. Read Ms. Frakes' inclusive article covering concrete and steel surface prep on page 8. W hat you' ll also fnd within these pages are some of the key players in the surface prep industry. You can fnd that infor- mation throughout the supplement. Knowledge Is Power Te Surface Prep Supplement marks the frst of our stand-alone extensions for 2015. Check back in for our other supplements, including the second annual Safety Supplement, which is slated to come out with the May 2015 issue, and, new for 2015, our inaugu- ral Equipment Supplement, which is scheduled for distribution with the July 2015 issue. As always, feel free to read any or all of our supplements on our website at Tey live in the Special Sections area on the homep- age for easy access. Tis year has shaped up to be pretty special already, and we're looking forward to continuing that momentum. We're prepped for a great 2015. Are you? CP All Prepped I N T E R N A T I O N A L ON THE COVER Surface prep is crucial for all types of substrates. Check out the concrete and steel sum-up on page 10 and the roof overview on page 26. —Photo courtesy of Graco Inc.
