FUNDAMENTALS OF RESINS AND POLYMERS FOR PAINTS AND COATINGS

Date: May 21-23, 2019
Course Fee: $1,250.00
Location: Boone Hall, Ypsilanti, MI
Room: TBD
Instructor: Vijay Mannari, Ph.D.

Objectives

Resins and polymers are the most important components of paints and coatings. Final properties and applications of coatings are mainly dictated by the type of resin, their chemistry, crosslinking, beside other factors. With the availability of different coating technologies today such as water-based, powder coatings, high-solids and UV-cure, the chemistry formulation and applications of resins has become more complex. This course is designed to provide a fundamental understanding of the major resin types, how are they prepared and how resins are designed for specific end-use applications. As such, the course will cover all major resin types used in solvent-based, water-borne, high-solids, UV-cure coatings and their cross-linking technologies.

Who should attend?

This course will be useful for those who are involved in resin/coating/ink/adhesive product development, formulators, technical service personnel, coatings/resin specifiers, technical sales and customer support staff, research and development chemists and all others who seek knowledge in this specific area.

What you will learn

  • Develop an overall understanding of resins and polymers and their currently used technologies
  • Learn how resins are designed (formulated) and prepared, and how one resin type is different from another (e.g. water-borne vs high-solid resins)
  • Learn what the numbers means in resin Technical Data Sheets (TDS)
  • Gain a valuable understanding of cross-linking techniques and how they are leveraged for property development in coatings  
  • Learn how resins are designed for low VOC and green and sustainable coatings and their future trends
