Powder Coating Kitchen

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.
