SSPC Charles G. Munger Award

SSPC Charles G. Munger Award

This award was named in honor of the late Charles Munger, who advanced the use of zinc-rich primers and wrote prolifically for the coatings industry. It is given to acknowledge the outstanding industrial or commercial coatings project demonstrating the longevity of the original coating. The structure may have had spot repairs or overcoating with the original coating still in-tact.
