Keynote Address

Professor Jim Guthrie,

Leeds University.


ABSTRACT: The presentations that follow this introduction cover a wide variety of topics and yet have several points in common. These concern the interactions between components of formulations, factors related to mixing types and efficiencies, time dependent phenomena (ageing), deposition criteria and so on. One aspect that is of continuous relevance is the impact of these formulation and composition criteria is the effect on performance, especially when the resulting solid state coating is put under duress/stress/mechanical action.  Interactions between the binder system/solvents/additives and particulates are of significance in this context, a point that will be used as the focus of the plenary address.

PROFILE: Jim Guthrie is the Professor of Polymer Science and Surface Coatings Technology in the Department of Colour Science of the School of Chemistry at the University of Leeds. He is closely involved in both teaching and research, within the remit suggested by the title of the professorship
