Coming to CoatingsPro Magazine: ‘Warren’s Corner’

Warren Brand heads Chicago Corrosion Group, a leading vendor-neutral consultancy. In a successful career spanning more than four decades, Brand has owned an industrial tank lining and coating firm and has written dozens of blogs and technical articles in a variety of publications. He has managed thousands of coating installation projects and developed specs for thousands of paint and coating applications.

Brand, who is a certified NACE Level 3 and The Society for Protective Coatings (SSPC) protective coating specialist (PCS), has earned an MBA, as well.

And now, he’s coming to CoatingsPro Magazine! Every other month, Brand will be writing an online column pertinent to interests of the industrial and commercial coatings industries.

The first column of the “Warren’s Corner” series, which can be read here, covers the “good, bad, and ugly” of working with concrete substrates. Brand will also be contributing to editorial content in CoatingsPro print issues, such as the “Never Again: The Case of the Trench Coating Failure” column.

Future columns from Brand will be coming in the months ahead, and we’re very open to feedback from our readers, as well as ideas for potential topics.

If there’s a subject you would like to see discussed in this series, feel free to use the comments section beneath this post, or reply to CoatingsPro on social media. And if you like what you’re reading, please feel encouraged to share the columns on your own social media channels.
