The Federation of Societies for Coatings Technology announced preliminary program plans for the 2004 International Coatings Technology Conference and Annual Meeting Technical Program, scheduled for October 25-29 in Chicago in conjunction with the International Coatings Expo (ICE). Advance registrations are being accepted, the FSCT said.

The Annual Meeting Technical Program will include more than 80 presentations reflecting a theme of “Challenge-Change-Opportunity”, with sessions planned on Environmentally Compliant Coatings; Pigments and Extenders; Formulation; High Throughput Applications; Surfactants and Defoamers; Weathering/Durability; UV/Radiation Technology; Pigment Concentrates and Additives; and Advances in Analytical Methods.

The Coatings Technology Conference program will include two-one- and half-day courses on a variety of topics, including: Six Sigma; additives; polymer technology; crosslinking: waterborne coatings; principles of paint formulation; color science and technology; paste printing ink vehicles; maintenance coatings; powder coatings; high-throughput methodology; coatings technology for the non-technologist; advances in photochemical polymerization; nanotechnology and nanocomposites; anticorrosion coatings; global regulatory changes; design of waterborne resins; and the impact of color.
