Powder Coating Short Course
The Powder Coating Kitchen: Hands-On Powder Coating Formulating Fundamentals
The PC Kitchen’s Short Course introduces formulators, chemists and scientists to the fundamentals of creating a powder coating from the ground up. An introduction to resin chemistry and corresponding crosslinker technology will enable the chemist to understand how to construct a binder to meet the performance specified by the coating end user. A survey of powder coating additives, colorant pigments and extenders rounds out the basics of formulation technology. This hands-on course is held in a working powder coating laboratory, which includes practical sample making and coating evaluation. The PC Kitchen Short Course is eligible for CEU (continuing education) credits and will be accredited by International Association of Continuing Education and Training IACET.
After participating in this event attendees will be able to:
- Identify the six generic types of powder coating chemistries and their general performance.
- Understand the processing steps to manufacture a powder coating.
- Understand the main components of a powder coating formulation and what influence each has on overall performance.
- Apply a powder coating to laboratory test panels, cure the coating and evaluate basic film performance such as film thickness, color, gloss and impact resistance.
