Aspects of Additives & Control Agents

Wednesday, 5 October 2016 from 13:00 to 17:30

Coatings Companies and their Technologists need to formulate Coatings that Perform. Defining Performance and then selecting and combining suitable cost effective raw materials, is a potential minefield.

You generally start with the key building blocks, the Raw materials that combine to form the Resin System and the Pigmentation plus the main components of the liquid phase, (if you’ll have one). If that would do the job every formulation would have about 5, or 6 components.

More often than not, your building blocks will need some more ‘cement’ to hold them together and get the performance you need. So you’ll need some “Additives & Control Agents”

Understanding the important Aspects of Additives & Control Agents that you’ll need to know and consider when choosing which to use, will certainly help. Knowing who can help you with technical support and sound advice, will save many hours of search and bench work.

West Riding OCCA have ‘Selected and Combined’ a Forum of companies that are keen to help you understand “Aspects of Additives & Control Agents”. 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 Additives & Control Agents, 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 have come to expect good support from OCCA, and non-members.
