Pigment wetting, dispersing, and stabilization examined in upcoming FSCT Virtual Learning Conferences.Continuing its informative series of Virtual Learning Conferences (VLCs), FSCT FSCT Federation of Societies for Coating Technology
FSCT Fire Support Control Terminal will host two courses on "Principles and Practices of 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. Wetting, Dispersing, and Stabilization Stabilization
The action undertakes a country when it buys and sells its own currency to protect its exchange value.
Actions registered competitive traders undertake by on the NYSE to meet the exchange requirement that 75% of their traded be stabilizing, meaning that sell orders ." Part I of the course will be held February 5, 2008, from 1:00-2:00 pm (ET) and Part II is scheduled for February 12 from 1:00-2:00 pm (ET). Instructor for both courses will be Janos Hajas, of BYK-Chemie GmbH.
Principles and Practices of Pigment Wetting, Dispersing, and Stabilization in Organic Coatings
The first course in this series focuses on the principles and practices as they apply to organic coatings. Comparisons of solventborne, aqueous aqueous /aque·ous/ (a´kwe-us)

In foods, any of various chemical substances added to produce desirable effects. Additives include such substances as artificial or natural colourings and flavourings; stabilizers, emulsifiers, and thickeners; preservatives and humectants (moisture-retainers); and structures and chemistries. In addition, the course provides practical tips on how to create the most suitable millbase or pigment concentrate formulation. Working mechanisms and selection principles of additives are detailed.

VLC Very Low Clearance series continues on February 12 with an examination of pigment wetting, dispersing, and stabilization of aqueous coating formulations. Typical properties of additive structures are covered, along with information on how to create the most suitable aqueous millbase formulation. Aqueous pigment concentrate formulations will also be highlighted.
Who Should Participate
The series is designed for coating formulators, chemists, application technologists, and others in the coating industry. Some chemistry background is assumed.
About the Speaker
Janos Hajas initially worked as an R & D chemist (jargon) chemist - (Cambridge) Someone who wastes computer time on number crunching when you'd far rather the computer were working out anagrams of your name or printing Snoopy calendars or running life patterns. May or may not refer to someone who actually studies chemistry. in the coatings industry for 14 years, developing aqueous and solventborne coatings for many end uses. He joined BYK-Chemie in 1989 and is currently responsible for global technical support of the coatings additive business of the company. Mr. Hajas has published more than 200 papers. He has lectured at international symposia sym·po·si·a
A plural of symposium. and congresses on performance properties and improvements of environmentally acceptable coatings.
Registration for the VLC programs will open on the FSCT website shortly. Only one fee is charged per location, regardless of the number of participants. Register by January 31 for the discounted rate (per course) of $99 for FSCT members and $199 for nonmembers. After January 31, the rates are increased to $149 for FSCT members and $249 for nonmembers.
