FSCT Advancements in Coatings Series highlights important developments in additives.
This informative symposium will provide attendees with a practical understanding of the concepts and available technologies for a wide range of additives commonly used to improve performance in both waterborne and solvent-based coatings.
"Additives 2006" is intended for coatings formulators, including R & D application development and technical service personnel, as well as end-users of coatings, inks, adhesives, and sealants.
The program will feature a one-day short course followed by a two-day symposium with presentations offered in separate, themed tracks. The preliminary program includes the following:
