AMPP LOGOTo create a unified voice for the corrosion control and protective coatings industries, a new association launched January 6, at a global virtual event.

The new organization, the Association for Materials Protection and Performance (AMPP), was formed by a merger between Houston-based NACE International, The Corrosion Society; and Pittsburgh-based SSPC: The Society for Protective Coatings. AMPP’s name, logo, and other brand elements were revealed at the event led by AMPP CEO, Bob Chalker and the organization’s executive leadership.

“AMPP brings together the world’s leading corrosion prevention and protective coatings organizations under one umbrella,” says Chalker. “With a vision to create a safer, protected, and sustainable world, the new association will focus on the future of materials protection and performance.”

With more than 40,000 members in 130 countries, AMPP consists of two governance structures— AMPP and AMPP Global Center. AMPP provides services to members in the areas of certification, accreditation, membership, advocacy and public affairs, while AMPP Global Center focuses on standards, technical and research activities, conferences, events, education, training, publications, and preprofessional programming.

While the AMPP staff has been working together seamlessly since October, some program details such as accreditation and certification continue to evolve. For the near future, NACE and SSPC accreditations and certifications will remain as they are currently.

“For years, AMPP’s new combined membership has been aligned in one very important way: our members are dedicated to protecting infrastructure and assets from corrosion and deterioration. Guided by this common purpose we will be a stronger, more powerful voice for our industry by working together,” says Chalker.

CFCM slingpsychrometer 400Paul N. Gardner USA, global distributors, producers, and designers of quality physical and inspection instruments for the paint, coatings, and related industries, has introduced a new offering: The compact, portable Sling Psychrometer.

As an easy way to measure relative humidity levels quickly, this uniquely compact Bacharach Sling Psychrometer accurately determines per cent relative humidity without the necessity of consulting complex tables. There is no need to wet the wick each time a reading is taken, and it contains a slide rule calculator which correlates wet and dry bulb thermometer indications for direct reading of relative humidity. When not in use, the thermometer case telescopes into the handle for protection.

The Sling Psychrometer consists of two thermometers that are turned by vigorously swinging the handle and exposing the thermometers to rapid air movement. These two thermometers are called dry bulb and wet bulb. The bulb of one thermometer is placed in direct contact with the room air to measure dry-bulb air temperature. The bulb of the other thermometer is covered with a silk or muslin sleeve that is kept moist to record the wet bulb temperature. Evaporation cools the wet bulb more than the dry bulb, and the humidity is obtained as a function of change in temperature. The atmospheric humidity is determined by calculations, steam tables, or using a psychrometric chart. Gardco.com
