September Wood Coatings Conference co-sponsored by Piedmont Society.

The Piedmont Society for Coatings Technology has announced that a Wood Coatings Technology Conference, "Wood Coatings and Substrates," will be held on September 29, 2006, on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

The conference is being sponsored by the Piedmont Society, the University of North Carolina-Greensboro, and the Wood Coatings Research Group, Inc., High Point, NC.

The conference will cover the basic chemistry, science, and technology behind the development, performance, and application of coatings, particularly wood coatings. Through presentations on basic theory and science information, the conference is intended to improve understanding of coatings science for the coatings chemist and technologist. Additional goals include helping to further advance the science of coatings and to provide a forum for discussion of new technologies and developments.

"Wood Coatings and Substrates" will also help those unfamiliar with the coatings industry to see the potential merits and opportunities of choosing a career in a materials science field such as coatings or a related area.
