FDT is now QP8 Certified

In addition to our QP1 & QP2 Certification, FDT has been recently certified by the Society for Protective Coatings (SSPC) for QP8 Certification: Installation of Polymer Coatings and Surfacings on Concrete and Other Cementitious Surfaces.

SSPC QP8 Certification is a new program intended to be used by facility owners (or their protective coating specialists or specifying engineers) to ensure that contractors hired to install polymer coatings or surfacings on concrete and other cementitious surfaces in commercial, institutional, and industrial facilities have the primary technical capabilities and organizational structure necessary to do the work.

In order to achieve certification, companies are assessed in several key areas:

  • management procedures
  • technical knowledge
  • quality control procedures
  • personnel qualifications
  • safety, health, and environmental compliance.

Companies seeking certification must also demonstrate their ability to: •perform substrate evaluation, repair, and treatment •conduct surface preparation operations •install coatings and surfacings over concrete-based substrates •implement their quality program in the field •meet the conditions and restrictions specified by the owner

Thank you to all of our Great Employees providing the Great Work that has helped make these certifications possible and make FDT an Extraordinary Company!
