Manufacturers must now produce products that are better, less expensive and more durable than ever before. Coating 2005 is the place where you can learn about a range of finishing technologies. This is your opportunity to research and compare today's latest innovations and meet with other industrial finishers who are facing the same issues that you do.

Coating 2005's technical conference will offer 68 conference sessions (see sidebar) that address everything from the basics of various coating methods to emerging technologies.

Of course, time spent on the show floor visiting with exhibitors is a major reason to come to Coating 2005, so this year there will be no conference sessions on Tuesday afternoon, allowing a full six hours of show floor time without interruptions. Nearly 200 exhibiting companies will be showcasing their latest innovations.

New this year, the show floor will house a showcase filled with finished products that will highlight the various finishing technologies represented. The showcase has been themed to be a garage, which will contain the kinds of products you would see in your own garage. Each item will have a description of the finishing process used on it, along with the exhibiting company who contributed the product to the showcase. This fun area will provide attendees with a close-up look at the varied finishing technologies represented on the show floor. Be sure to visit The Garage.

You can register for Coating 2005 online at Call Goyer Management at 513-624-9988 with questions.

Plant Tours: Thursday, September 22

2:00 to 6:00 p.m. Space for the plant tours is limited and will be filled on a first come, first served basis, so you may want to register early to secure your space on the tour. Tour includes transportation from the convention center to the plant tour location and return to the center. Tour sites reserve the right to review attendee list and restrict admission. Registration for plant tours will not be available on site. Visit for more information.

Plant Tour No. 1 - Seleco

Seleco provides selective electroless plating of plastic enclosures for EMI/RFI shielding and ESD protection. On this tour you will be able to see a waterborne basecoat applied to the areas to be plated. Parts are then IR-cured and then proceed to a non-etching electroless-plating bath. Seleco is the only selective plater to be a charter member of the Strategic Goals Program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Plant Tour No. 2 - ENKEI America

ENKEI America produces cast aluminum wheels for cars and light trucks. Their system consists of a 12-stage pretreatment from Henkel (cleaner/deoxidization/chrome conversion). They use a Nordson Excel 2001 powder booth and collector with Versa Spray II Auto Powder guns that utilize a Sure-Coat Auto console. The powder booth includes a climate-controlled load/destat/ spray/transfer/ and powder storage area. The line has a destat blow off booth prior to powder coating and a fixture blow off booth after transfer. In addition to powder coating, ENKEI America has two waterborne liquid lines in operation utilizing a Can-Am HVLP Turbo-Air system consisting of two water draw booths and two dry filter booths.

Plant Tour No. 3 - Astral Industries

Astral Industries manufacturers steel burial caskets along with subcontracting coating services. Astral's powder coating facility features a clean room that is highly filtered to minimize dust contamination. The room is also constantly air-conditioned and humidified to maintain consistent application conditions. Their automated operation features two Nordson Corp. Excel powder booths, each with 20 Versa-Spray automatic guns and Sure Coat controls. The equipment has reclaim ability and produces a transfer rate of more than 99 percent. Reclaimed powder is automatically sieved to ensure consistency of the powder prior to re-spraying. Astral's powder coating line can coat parts up to 8' tall. For faraday cage reinforcement or for small batch runs, Astral has a manual powder coating operation featuring a large, walk-in Nordson Versa-Coat conveyorized booth with four Sure Coat guns for coating miscellaneous parts and smaller production runs. Astral works closely with their powder supplier, DuPont Powder Coatings, to develop specialized Alesta formulations designed to replace a multi-coat liquid finish. Products include a variety of unique metallic pigments incorporated by DuPont bonding technology. The key requirements include high metallic content, excellent DOI with a Class A surface.

Sidebar: About the Program

The technical conference program has been developed by the co-sponsoring associations to offer a range of educational information for all finishers.
