Announcement

 

Because of the covid-19 virus, we are canceling the short course in May 18-22, 2020 due to the closure of Missouri S &T campus. Also, since most companies are eliminating travel and educational attendance, we are moving the short course to September 21-25, 2020. People who are currently enrolled will be transferred to the September class, and we are still accepting the participants for the September class. We can still be reached by email at, formulation@mst.edu, not phone until Missouri S &T campus re-opens. We wish that everyone stay safe and healthy.  Please keep up with changes on our web site.  Michael Van De Mark, Director Missouri S&T Coatings Institute

ONLINE SHORT COURSE

We are offering "Introduction to the Coating Systems" online short course. This course is targeted for automotive and aviation type OEM companies. This self-paced seminar will cover the painting system from the composition of paints to the evaluation of the dry film.  The pigments, resin, solvents and additives will be discussed including their influence on the coatings performance.  Color measurement, surface profile, and other evaluation criteria will be related to composition.  The importance of surface preparation and other manufacturing criteria will show the system complexity and each step's importance.

We are offering "Surface Defects: Elimination from Human and Process Contaminants" online short course. This course addresses many of the issues in prevention and minimization of defects. The course covers the defects caused by the coatings process, as well as human issues, including personal care product causes. Several of the surface defects are discussed – from basic principles and real world automotive and aircraft examples. The highly practical approach of this course will greatly aid the personnel involved in the painting operation to reduce and systematically approach issues.
