The program for the International Coatings Congress, part of the Brazilian trade show ABRAFATI 2015, has been finalised and can be viewed on the website for the show. For this edition of the event, a large number of papers have been received relating to technological evolution. The Science Committee for the event has recommended an increase in number of lectures from 72 to 90. These will be presented in six auditoriums at the show site, Transamerica Expo in Sao Paulo, and will follow a theme-based logic: Resins & Emulsions, Pigments, Additives, Paints, Coatings, and Environment. “We will make a rather valuable contribution to scientific and technological development in the coatings supply chain,” says ABRAFATI’s executive president Dilson Ferreira. “The extremely high-end program and the presence of the best professionals at both the Congress and the Exhibition make for ideal conditions to spread knowledge and to share and discuss innovative solutions.” The 14th International Coatings Congress and 14th International Coatings Industry Suppliers Exhibition run from October 13 – 15, 2015. www.abrafati2015.com.br
