Now also includes the X-Green (Extreme Green) Categories and products.

  • MPI Identifiers - Defects and FailuresIncludes 125 color pictures and defines 81 different defects and failures commonly found with architectural/commercial paints and coatings. It’s an excellent tool for assessing the surface prior to a repaint project to determine surface preparation and priming requirements, or to review the quality of a new paint job.

Online access only to:
ASM Decision Tree; where you can go through the following steps to help create your project specifications:

  • Specify project type (new or repaint)
  • Choose interior or exterior
  • Select your division (material)
  • Select your substrate
  • Choose your subtype of substrate
  • Select the desired finish
  • Choose the performance required

Following this you are able to save your system choices and to add additional systems to compile a complete projects worth of systems. Once all systems are added you can save the information into a complete and comprehensive Excel file for reference. You can then go on to choose your required products from the list of MPI approved manufactures/products.
