While I'm not in the coatings indus- try, I know a few people in construction, and I passed the magazine along to one of them who I thought might fnd it useful. Tere is no place on these editorial pages ("Beneath the Surface," SourceBOOK 2015) where I could fnd the full words for the acronym NACE. Have a good day and success with CoatingsPro Magazine. A. J. Dubiel Ontario, CA Mr. Dubiel, Tank you for your letter and support of CoatingsPro! Please share it with whomever you think may beneft from our content. As for the NACE acronym, you are correct that it isn't defned within the pages of our magazine. Tat is because NACE is no longer an acronym. Although it origi- nally stood for the National Association of Corrosion Engineers, the name changed in 1993 to incorporate international business and other professions within the industry. Terefore, the acronym is now our ofcial name, much like ASTM International. ~Editor Editor, I was delighted to see the supplemen- tal Surface Prep that came with the CoatingsPro Magazine. I found it very informative and timely.
