Research and development into all aspects of protective coatings on distribution equipment.
The projects undertaken address real problems that have been identified by the forum members as significant and which require technical investigation and development. Projects are aimed at providing:

  • Cost effective protective coatings for distribution equipment either by reducing operating costs or capital investment

  • Reduction of the environmental impact of associated activities to comply with CEPE (Guide to VOC Reduction in Protective Coatings) in preparation for EC National Emissions Ceiling Directive

  • Improvements in safety and applications.
