HOUSTON, TX -- "Prevention is the Cure-Best Practices for Preventing Coating Failures" is the theme of the 2007 CoatingsPro Conference, held in Houston, Texas, from November 14-16, 2007, and hosted by NACE International, CoatingsPro Magazine, and the Coating Society of the Houston Area.

The program offers hands-on instruction techniques and educational approaches geared towards project engineers, quality assurance managers, contractors, technical sales representatives, blasters, paint applicators, maintenance personnel, and specifiers.

"The first CoatingsPro Conference was a success, as it filled a much needed niche in the market, bringing an audience and a format that is key to this market," said David Wolf, Vice President of Sales for the Group 1 Division of Carboline Company. "We're proud to help sponsor this event."

Attendees will gain a better understanding of the coatings process, including the importance of a properly prepared coating specification, following the coating manufacturer's recommendations for application, including mixing, application, environmental conditions, time/temp for application, curing, and time-to-service. Highlights of the technical program include, "Preventing or Reducing Premature Coating Failure," presented by Mike O'Brien, Mark 10 Resource Company; and "How Much Failure Can You Take," presented by Terry Greenfield, CorroMetrics Services, Inc.

The 2007 CoatingsPro Conference will include exhibits, networking events, and a luncheon featuring Mark Briggs, OSHA Compliance Assistant Specialist.
