FSCT Advancements in Coatings Series, June 8-10, to explore nanotechnology in coatings.

The FSCT will host an Advancements in Coatings Series (ACSeries) program on "Nanotechnology in Coatings," from June 8-10, 2005, in Seattle, WA. This conference explores emerging nanotechnologies and discusses ways these technologies will impact the user by providing competitive advantages in the development of new coating products. The program consists of a one-day short course (presented at ICE 2004 and brought back by popular demand), followed by a two-day symposium featuring 30-minute paper presentations.

Learning Objectives

* Nanoscale Design and Synthesis to include

-- Manufacturing, Synthesis, and Processing of Nanomaterials

-- Nanostructuring Methods

-- Functionalized Nanoparticles

-- Nanoporous Coatings

-- Nanocomposites

* Nanomaterials Characterization

-- Characterization and Properties

-- Analytical Methods

* Markets and Applications

-- Paints and Plastics

-- Composites in Automotive, Biomedical, and Electronic

Who Should Attend

Scientists, formulators, engineers, and students from academic, government, and industrial laboratories who are involved in any aspect of coating development using nanotechnologies will benefit. Managers and sales personnel will increase their awareness of the new tools available and their impact on creative innovations and technologies. Anyone involved in the value chain: suppliers and developers of resins, pigments, additives, and other ingredients, those developing new coating products, and those who are developing product specifications and using coatings will be able to learn something new that could impact and enhance their effectiveness.
