Aggressive Environments

The presentation will cover several aspects of working with coatings for concrete floors. Murphy will establish what constitutes an “aggressive” environment with regard to concrete floors and review the coating formulations available for the job.

He will review the guidelines already available for specifying coatings in these situations. And he’ll go over the impact of installation, inspection and maintenance practices.

Murphy is an expert in concrete floors, working with SSPC, The Society for Protective Coatings, to provide training and certification for seamless concrete floor coatings. He previously served as vice president of marketing for the General Polymers brand of coatings for Sherwin-Williams.
