Major revision of the standard most commonly used for anticorrosive protection of steel by paint

Dear visitors, please be aware that all work in the technical committees has been finalised and all parts of revised the ISO 12944 are now published. In Hempel, we are currently implementing the necessary processes to be able to provide our customers with products and services in accordance with the latest edition of ISO 12944.

ISO 12944 describes the types of paint and paint systems commonly used for corrosion protection of steel structures. It was developed in the 1990s, and today it is an essential and the most important guide for all those professionals dealing with corrosion in their businesses. Next year (2018) will bring a substantial revision of ISO 12944. As one of the world’s leading suppliers of coatings, Hempel will help you to get prepared for this crucial update of the anticorrosive protection standard.

Our online webinar will focus on ISO standard fundamentals and on ISO 12944 in particular. Following a brief introduction to corrosion characteristics and anticorrosive coatings protection, the key part of the webinar will be dedicated to specific aspects of the forthcoming ISO 12944 revision. After the webinar, all attendants should be familiar with ISO 12944, including all main parts of the standard and how they will change in 2018.

Is anticorrosive protection a part of your projects in either planning or execution phases? Are you generally familiar with ISO 12499 but need to understand its upcoming revision? Rather than to waste your time searching for information, you can leave the research to us. Hempel’s internal experts are continuously tracking all the upcoming updates of this broadly used standard, and they stand ready to share their expertise with you.

Interested? Plan to join our online webinar and we will summarize all the important information about ISO 12944 and its revision for you.
