TTP Tools App

TTP have developed an App to support you in the workplace. The App will assist you with conversions, coating breakdown, pre-surface preparation, spread rates and surface area calculation.

The App is an ideal working tool for personnel in the protective coatings industry.

TTP Log Book App

This TTP Log Book App is a comprehensive platform that allows companies to monitor and manage all their Applicators and Supervisors, pull up reports and view the progress of all employees in the field as they progress.

The user updates the App by inputting the hours per activity and has them approved by a supervisor. The App will accumulate the task activities so the employer/supervisor can monitor and assess any training requirements.
