Course explores coating additives.
The Center for Professional Advancement will present a course on "Additives for the coatings industry," February February: see month. 28 through March 2 at the Hyatt Recency in New Brunswick New Brunswick, province, Canada
New Brunswick, province (2001 pop. 729,498), 28,345 sq mi (73,433 sq km), including 519 sq mi (1,345 sq km) of water surface, E Canada. , NJ.
This course will provide a state-of-the-art description of the structure, role and deployment of additives in coating formulations and coating applications. The content of the course has been structured in such a way that for each class of additives, first the relevant scientific principles will be discussed, and subsequently the functioning of these additives in coatings systems.
In addition, the course will pay due attention to environmental trends and associated (emerging) legislation, such as the desire to reduce the emission of organic solvents. In this context, the course will provide an update on technologies that have been developed to cope with the ever increasing demands that are being place on coating formulations, and thus on additives. Next to the common approaches to reduce VOCs with high solids or aqueous aqueous /aque·ous/ (a´kwe-us)
1. watery; prepared with water.
2. see under humor.
adj. coating systems, the course will also cover additives for UV curing formulations.
This course is designed to train anyone who is involved with the development and technical marketing of coating formulations, and covers the full spectrum of disciplines ranging from fundamental organic and physical chemistry to more applied science and practical knowledge. It is primarily intended for people employed in research and development, for product and application development scientists and formulators, and for technical service specialists.
Day one of the course will include the following sessions: Fundamental principles of wetting; Surface control agents: Foam control agents; and Rheology modifiers.
Day two of the course will include sessions on Pigment pigment, substance that imparts color to other materials. In paint, the pigment is a powdered substance which, when mixed in the liquid vehicle, imparts color to a painted surface. dispersants and wetting agents wet·ting agent
A substance that reduces the surface tension of a liquid, causing the liquid to spread across or penetrate more easily the surface of a solid.
Noun 1. ; Coloristic properties; Surface modifiers: and an educational evening session that includes testing.
Day three of the course will include sessions on Catalytic cat·a·lyt·ic
