Aspects of Formulation

‘Aspects of Formulation’ WROCCA Forum – Weds 16th October PPG, (Sigma/Kalon)

Coatings Companies and their Technologists need to formulate products that do the job.

Defining what ‘the job’ is and then selecting and combining suitable cost effective raw materials, is a potential minefield.

Understanding the important Aspects you need to know and consider when using key raw material groups, will certainly help.

Knowing who can help you with technical support and sound advice, will save many hours of search and bench work.

We have ‘selected and combined’ a Forum of companies that are keen to help you understand Aspects of Formulating with some ‘Key Raw Material Groups’.

They will help dispel some of the mysteries, give ‘Sound Advice’ and offer ‘Technical Support’.

This Forum has something for everybody who has an interest in Formulation, from large producers, to small Industrial paints manufacturers and the companies that support them.

This concentrated form of lecture programme will have many advantages to members and companies, and we expect good support from OCCA, and non-members.

13.00-13.15 – Check in at Bradford Road Security Gate.

Then escort to the venue. Allow minimum 15 minutes.

13.30-17.00 – Technical Presentations, followed by buffet.

Keynote Address, Professor Jim Guthrie
