Cal Poly - SLO to offer Winter Short Course on Coatings Science and Technology

Published on 2003-10-27. Author : SpecialChem

SAN LUIS OBISPO, CALIFORNIA - The Polymers and Coatings program at California Polytechnic State University will offer a Short Course on Polymers and Coatings Science during the week of February 2-6, 2004. The one-week course will cover many aspects of polymer and coating technology including resin chemistry, pigments and fillers, nanoparticles, additives, coating application aspects and rheology with emphasis on liquid coatings.

The short course will bring together a mix of academic and industrial experts in the field to guarantee both fundamental and application aspects are addressed with equal emphasis. Other coatings technologies (e.g., powder coatings) will be discussed in order to compare and contrast with traditional liquid coatings. In addition, participants will benefit from discussions of VOC and air quality aspects of coatings by experts in both industry and government regulatory agencies.

Participants are expected to have had some exposure to the coatings field along with a working knowledge of chemistry and other sciences.
