ABRAFATI to host 2005 congress and exhibition in Brazil.

ABRAFATI 2005, hosted by ABRAFATI, Associacao Brasileira dos Fabricantes de Tintas (The Brazilian Paint Manufacturers Association), will be held September 14-16, 2005 at the ITM Expo in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

The Congress portion of the event, 9th International Paint Congress, will feature presentations by experts from both Europe and the United States. As in previous years, a significant number of presentations are received from universities. This year, however, all academic papers are limited exclusively to universities, as Jorge Fazenda, member of ABRAFATI 2005's Scientific Committee explained, "There are very interesting research projects being developed by universities together with the private initiative," he said, mentioning a scheduled presentation about the control of latex paint by tensoactive agents. In this case, the private initiative's participation with universities is represented by the partnership between Oxiteno and the University of Campinas' Chemistry Institute. "All papers the University of Campinas' Chemistry Institute presented, with or without the private initiative, are always looked forward to anxiously during each event," he said. Mr. Fazenda also highlighted the balance there is among the main themes presented. "Our program, that includes 60 presentations, will attend to the widest range of interests in all areas, from pigments to colors, paint measurements and additives and their applications," he said.

Held parallel to the Congress, the 9th International Exhibition of Paint Industry Suppliers will host 150 booths of paint-related national and international manufacturers and vendors of raw material, package, machine, technology, and services and will occupy an area of 20,000 square meters.

ABRAFATI 2005 is expecting a record number of foreign exhibitors from South America, the United States, Europe, and Asia--with the highlight being the first-ever presence of Chinese exhibitors.
