The Powder Coating Summit takes place on October 4 and 5 at the Westin Columbus Hotel in Columbus, OH. This event is an exchange of ideas on the next generation of coating technology. The event features two full days of intensive dialogue, lab demos and tabletop exhibits. Attendees will not only be shown emerging powder technology that promises to change finishing processes, but also the fundamental research feeding these advancements. Sessions cover subjects from chemistry and formulation to pretreatment and applications through many types of curing, touching on aspects of powder coating on various materials and the newest developments in coating technology. There will be hands-on lab demos at the Powder Coating Research Group. Attendees will also have the opportunity to explore the tabletop exhibits and view student posters while networking with professionals during the reception after the first day of motivating sessions. Tabletops and sponsorships are available.
