Description – The objective of this practical workshop is to offer a sound assessment of the latest developments in materials, application methods, and process selection. The course will focus on material properties, both coatings and substrates, their application, and design of a high performance and environmentally compliant coating operation. In addition, it will discuss corrosion and methods of preventing corrosion by protective coatings and many case histories and troubleshooting approaches. The informal atmosphere with emphasis on problem solving discussions, and the “Learner Controlled Instruction” style, will make it easy for you to obtain answers to specific questions.
