FSCT Advancements in Coatings Series highlights important developments in additives.

Providing valuable information on new technologies and new solutions, the FSCT 2006 Advancements in Coatings Series will focus on the subject of Additives. To be held on June 19-21, at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare in Rosemont, IL. "Additives 2006" will be co-located with a second ACSeries program, "21st Century Manufacturing: Efficiency AND Compliance." Bridging the two programs will be the 2006 ACSeries Expo, featuring products and services related to these two areas.

Additives 2006

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:
