ROLLA, MO — Missouri S&T announced that registration is still open for its short course, "Introduction to Paint Formulation," which takes place May 20-24, 2019.

This intensive five-day course will take participants through the basic steps of paint formulation, from understanding the process to an actual laboratory formulation. Through study and work in a laboratory, attendees can learn to formulate paints to meet specific requirements. The course provides an opportunity to study and experiment with basic raw materials and learn their influences on the performance of the finished coatings, learn the formulation and testing of coatings in the laboratory to meet the special demands of the job, understand the limitations of plant production equipment and formulation variables for moving a coating from the lab to the plant, and understand modern chemical instrumentation as applied to coatings.
