CFCM CCAI Logo 2022 400The Chemical Coaters Association International offers a variety of training classes for the industrial finishing industry. This year the association adds valuable content to the calendar with its Industrial Finishing Safety Seminar. This one-and-a-half-day seminar was developed by industry experts well-versed in safety for finishing operations. To be held April 5 & 6, 2022, in Elgin, IL, the seminar will focus on NFPA 33, the Standard for Spray Application Using Flammable or Combustible Materials. Attendees will learn critical information on safely operating an industrial finishing line.

Seminar presenter and finishing consultant Rich Saddler remarks, “NFPA 33 provides the foundation for designing, building, and operating a finishing system which is safe and effective. This class will cover the entire standard and allow participants to understand the details and ask questions.” This workshop covers general safety requirements & construction/design, electrical and electrostatic spray equipment, ventilation, storage handling and distribution, fire protection, operations, maintenance and training, drying and curing, powder coating and an Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) panel. Attendees will also benefit from the opportunity to connect with professionals in industrial finishing safety.

This workshop is ideal for paint manufacturing engineers, lead painters, paint maintenance leads, maintenance engineers, maintenance personnel, staff engineers, environmental engineers (industrial health & safety), finishing equipment designers, system engineers, controls engineers, project engineers, and facility managers.

New Digital Solution Helps Customers Bring Colours to Life

AkzoNobel 3D colour visualization tool
AkzoNobel Powder Coatings has developed a new web application 3D colour visualization tool within its Interpon webshop to help customers better understand how a powder coating’s colour, texture and finish that look good in theory, will actually appear in reality. 

The tool provides instant access to thousands of colours in the Interpon range. Using a 360-degree dynamic camera and simulated lighting, the customer is given a true-to-life image of how the colour performs to a degree of accuracy and realism not possible before in a virtual environment.  

Rather than the image being ‘flat’, the customer can orientate the ‘virtual’ panel to see how the light reflects and the colour looks from different angles.
