The Polymers and Coatings Program at California Polytechnic State
University, San Luis Obispo, CA will offer a Polymers and Coatings
Introductory Short Course during the week of February 10-14, 2014.
The one-week course will cover many aspects of coating and polymer
technologies 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 ensure both fundamental
and application aspects are addressed with equal emphasis.
Other coatings technologies (e.g. UV 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 some exposure to the coatings
field along with working knowledge in chemistry and other sciences.
