Protective Coatings Industry

CORROSION IN THE COATINGS INDUSTRY

The total annual U.S. cost for organic and metallic protective coatings is $108.6 billion. 50% of all corrosion costs are preventable, and approximately 85% of these are in the area of coatings.

Companies depend on technological expertise as well as a wide variety of applications, including coatings for corrosion resistance. For 25 years, the NACE International Coating Inspector Program has set the standard for inspections in the protective coatings industry and is the world's most recognized coating inspector certification program.

The NACE CIP program, the most complete training curriculum in the industry, is the first international certification program designed to improve the overall quality of inspections performed reducing the impact of corrosion.
