Dr. James W. Rawlins

Course Purpose:

To provide entry level chemists in the coatings industry an understanding of the principles involved in formulating coatings.

Course Description: 
Coatings manufacture is challenging in its complexity as the ingredient list could often contain more than ten items. Formulating a good coating requires a good understanding of the manufacturing technique as well as troubleshooting problems. This short course will seek to impart a comprehensive understanding of pigments, resins, solvents, additives, formulations principles, calculations, and manufacturing techniques applicable to the coatings industry.
Who should attend: 
This short course is a general course covering major paint types presented at a fundamental technical level, and is designed for entry-level chemists to the coatings industry.
