They will have the opportunity to study and experiment with basic raw materials and their influences on the performance of the finished coatings, formulation and testing of coatings in the laboratory to meet the special demands of the job, limitations of plant production equipment and formulation variables for moving a coating from the lab to the plant, and modern chemical instrumentation as applied to coatings.
