Canadian Finishing and Coatings Manufacturing

Like so many successful independent publishers, Wilkinson Media was established with the singular focus of serving one collection of markets: the coatings and finishing industry. Its role of connecting buyers and sellers of coating and finishing products was driven by the trade title of Canadian Finishing & Coatings Manufacturing magazine. A commitment to readers and editorial content above all allowed Wilkinson to grow and expand its influence in the coatings and finishing industry in Canada.

Pete Wilkinson launched CFCM in 2007. 

He had chosen a difficult time to start a new publishing venture, as the financial meltdown of 2008 cut advertising budgets across the board. It is an indication of his skill and persistence that the publication survived and prospered through this period. CFCM was initially published as a tabloid but switched to the more conventional journal format in 2015.

Wilkinson was recognized two years before his death by the Canadian Paint and Coatings Association and presented with the Roy Kennedy Award,  CPCA’s highest level of recognition for those that support and give back to the industry. CPCA presents this award each year to an individual who epitomizes Roy Kennedy’s dedication to the paint and coatings industry and their outstanding volunteer service to the association and its members.

CFCM continues today as a publishing company under the direction of Kerrwil Publications Limited but maintians the same focus and commitment to the coatings and finishing industry started by Pete Wilkinson. Expanding from the foundation of CFCM magazine, CFCM reaches those in the coatings and finishing industry through an integrated suite of print, digital, online, and web-based platforms.

Kerrwil is your market resource.

New Bacharach Sling Psychrometer


CFCM slingpsychrometer 400Paul N. Gardner USA, global distributors, producers, and designers of quality physical and inspection instruments for the paint, coatings, and related industries, has introduced a new offering: The compact, portable Sling Psychrometer.

As an easy way to measure relative humidity levels quickly, this uniquely compact Bacharach Sling Psychrometer accurately determines per cent relative humidity without the necessity of consulting complex tables. There is no need to wet the wick each time a reading is taken, and it contains a slide rule calculator which correlates wet and dry bulb thermometer indications for direct reading of relative humidity. When not in use, the thermometer case telescopes into the handle for protection.

The Sling Psychrometer consists of two thermometers that are turned by vigorously swinging the handle and exposing the thermometers to rapid air movement. These two thermometers are called dry bulb and wet bulb. The bulb of one thermometer is placed in direct contact with the room air to measure dry-bulb air temperature. The bulb of the other thermometer is covered with a silk or muslin sleeve that is kept moist to record the wet bulb temperature. Evaporation cools the wet bulb more than the dry bulb, and the humidity is obtained as a function of change in temperature. The atmospheric humidity is determined by calculations, steam tables, or using a psychrometric chart. Gardco.com
