We are holding another of our training courses at our facility in Swindon in the UK. It is planned that the course will run from Monday 26th February to Friday 2nd March, 2018. The training will be hosted by Mr Benny Abbott, of Abbott Coating Inspections – a level 3 coatings inspector and the current President of the PDA.
The certified training course involves 4 days in the classroom and one in the spray unit with practical demonstration and machinery training. Although intensive, this will give you a fantastic basis from which to move forward with your polyurea career using our unique and amazing products.
The course will include, but is not limited to:
- Surface preparation and salt removal prior to coating – testing methods for Steel, Concrete, FRP/GRP and similar
- Chemistry and background of Polyurea – Uses and LIMITATIONS! SPI at the forefront of the technology for 40 years
- Machinery – The set up and strip down of plural pumps (Graco/WIWA/Gama/SPI) Probler P2 and Fusion guns along with the principles of fluid dynamics
- Problem Solving / Tips and tricks – with issues such as de-bonding, pin-holing, cracking and spotting off ratio spraying
