Industrial Paint and Protection (IPP) Magazine is an online media platform dedicated to providing information about industrial asset protection through coatings and finishing. In a space where good information is hard to come by, IPP Magazine strives to be a bastion of knowledge for facility owners, manufacturers, paint contractors and coating manufacturers alike. Our industrial coating and asset protection guides are intended for anyone with an interest in learning how to protect their business.
IPP Magazine is owned and operated by Thomas (Tommy) O’Shaughnessy, a St. Louis-based writer who has been writing about industrial coatings since 2015. Formerly the owner of CDN Paint, Tommy’s writing has been featured on trusted industry publications including PCI Magazine, MarineLink, Cleaning & Maintenance Management, Industry Today, Maritime Executive, Industrial Maintenance & Plant Operations, and Food Manufacturing.
He consults with industry experts from companies like U.S. Coatings, Thomas Industrial Coatings, Carboline, Tnemec, and EPR. Subject experts like Mike Mckeever (with 12 years of paint system experience) provide input into many of the articles you’ll read on IPP Magazine.
Tommy also references industry resources and guidelines from organizations like SSPC and NACE (now AMPP). It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say Tommy keeps a copy of SSPC’s Good Painting Practices on his desk at all times.
