Coatings Science

June 7 - June 12, 2014

The Coatings Science Short Course is designed for all levels of scientists and technologists working in the field of coatings. For those relatively new to the field, the short course provides a comprehensive discussion of the basic principles of coatings science. For more experienced chemists, the short course may provide a broader perspective and more fundamental understanding of coatings science. Participants should have had some background in college level chemistry, including organic chemistry. Laboratory sessions are included in the course to illustrate the concepts from the lectures. The following are course topics for this course.

  • Polymers Used in Coatings: Acrylics, Polyesters, Alkyds
  • Film Formation
  • Biobased Polymers in Coatings
  • Crosslinking
  • Epoxy Resins
  • Urethane Polymers for Coatings
  • Solvents and Solvent Evaporation
  • Powder Coatings
  • Radiation Curable Coatings
  • Statistical Design of Coatings
  • Pigments/Pigment Dispersion
  • Rheology of Coatings
  • Coatings Performance
  • Exterior Durability
  • Corrosion Protection by Coatings
  • Analytical Methods Used in Polymers & Coatings
  • Hiding and Opacity
