The three-day event draws more than 500 researchers and experts from academic, industrial, and governmental institutions from around the world. The Symposium will showcase a variety of technical advances in colloid and surface science across many areas including electrokinetics fluid and particle interactions, dispersions and emulsions.
“Axalta maintains a core competency in colloid and surface science as it is integral to creating stable pigment dispersions and emulsions as well as controlling the rheology and wetting behavior of liquid coatings,” said Joanne Hardy, Axalta Technology Director-North America. “Axalta is proud to be a sponsor of the Symposium to help provide opportunities to researchers and students to participate in discussions and further advance technology in this area.”
Axalta’s Senior Chemist Dr. Vicki Cheng also presented at the Symposium and shared a new method for characterizing the drying process of a liquid coating that is often used for automotive and industrial applications.
