See What You Get with Optically Active Pigments

by Bob Murphy

To achieve long-term service life, tank painting requires proper coating selection, application and inspection. Coating systems with Optically Active Pigments (OAP) can help ensure the correct application and inspection of epoxy water tank linings. This technology can help eliminate holidays, identify pinholes, and reduce premature failures caused by poor film thickness on edges, angles or areas that are difficult to inspect.

To learn more about OAP coating systems, tune into the Sherwin-Williams webinar, See What You Get with Optically Active Pigments, hosted by Tony Ippoliti. Ippoliti is an SSPC protective coatings specialist & SSPC instructor, a NACE certified coatings inspector, a Steel Tank Institute and Board of Governors member and instructor, an affiliate member of ASCE and a member of the AWWA D102 revision task group. Ippoliti will share his expert insights on the causes of corrosion in water tanks, edge protection best practices, inspection uniformity and how OAP coating systems can help make the process easier.
