The JPCL Outstanding Publication Award was presented to Primeaux and Gomez for their outstanding publication and presentation on “Pipeline Rehabilitation: Advances in Polyurea Spray Application.” This publication explored developments in robotic polyurea spray technologies for in-place pipeline rehabilitation.

The award itself states “for advancing the protective coatings industry with his paper, “Pipeline Rehabilitation: Advances in Polyurea Spray Application.”

This is the second award for Dudley and Todd, who were also presented the JPCL Editors’ Award in 2015 for their publication, "Robotic Sprayed-in-Place Pipelining: The Polyurea Goes Round & Round.” This publication explored robotic SIPP developments (Sprayed-in-place-pipe), polyurea systems designed for application work in industrial and water/wastewater applications as well as Industry Standards being prepared for robotic sprayed-in-place pipe.
