Regulations and analytical methods to be focus of fall ACSeries conference.

ACA will sponsor an Advancements in Coatings Series (ACSeries) program on "Coatings Regulation and Analytical Methods" on October 20-21, 2010, at the Sheraton Station Square Hotel in Pittsburgh, PA. The two-day conference will offer an open forum for professionals concerned with coatings regulations and the analytical methods used for their development.

The program is geared towards formulators and R&D personnel, coatings manufacturers, federal and state regulatory agency staff, facility owners, end-users with finishing lines, coating raw materials and equipment suppliers, laboratory and field testers, and specifiers, designers, and architects.

The conference will be held following the ACSeries on "Metal Protection Through Coatings Technology," scheduled for October 19-20, also at the Sheraton Station Square Hotel in Pittsburgh.
