I N T E R N A T I O N A L ON THE COVER On any coatings job, you should take specific parameters, such as equipment and safety gear, into consideration during the surface prep portion. —Photo courtesy of BlastOne Stephanie Marie Chizik Editor W hether you're working on concrete, steel, a roof, or some other surface, the right preparations can be key to a successful coating project. Prep is a common concept: You might prep for a trip by planning the route and making a packing list, for example. You prep your coffee table or walls before a DIY project, so it makes sense that you'd have to prep a major commercial or industrial project. But sometimes things that make sense aren't always done properly. Maybe there aren't sufficient resources (e.g., time, money, or tools). Maybe the knowledge is lacking. Or maybe you don't have the support from the client or your bosses to do the best job. Regardless of the reason for poor surface prep, it is often given the title of the #1 cause of premature coating failures. And even if you've mastered the art of prep, there are always new products and services coming into the market, hoping to help make your job easier, faster, and more productive. What's In the Mix W hether you're an expert or a green- horn in prep, this supplement of all things surface prep should be of some use to you and your crew. Hand tools, safety, standards.
