Breaking News: The PC Summit has evolved into the Powder Coating Symposium.
The PC Summit has perennially brought together the industry’s greatest minds in powder technology to exchange ideas on the next generation of coating technology. The PC Symposium expands its reach to include top researchers from the world’s preeminent coatings institutes. We do this in response to a revitalized energy we have seen at the university and scientific research levels.
Therefore in addition to our always fine array of the industry’s engineers and formulators, we have also invited the top researchers from the world’s preeminent coatings institutes. Attendees will not only be enlightened with emerging powder technology that promises to change finishing processes but also to the fundamental research feeding these advancements.
Two Day Event:
>> Day One: The morning consists of an introductory Short Course designed for the novice professional. Topics include Resin Chemistry and Performance, Manufacturing Process, Fundamentals of Application, Curing Techniques and Troubleshooting.
>> Evening Day One: A networking session encompassing table top exhibits, student posters, refreshments and appetizers.
>> Day Two: Central to our symposium theme day two boasts a dazzling body of industry and research experts who will be delivering papers on the latest technology ranging from pretreatment chemistry to novel resin chemistry and curing techniques.
The PC Symposium brings you face to face with the prominent experts in the powder coating industry for two full days of intensive dialogue.
