PC Summitry: Emerging Technology to Take Front and Center in Mid-June
Posted on Sunday, June 1, 2014
It’s nearly that time again, powder
coating fans. The 2014 Powder
Coating Summit is fast approaching.
This year’s event will be held on June
17-18 in Columbus, Ohio. Our prevailing
theme as always is “Bringing New Technology
You’re probably wondering how this
event is different than PCI Workshops or
the Powder Coating Show. The PC Summit
is all about emerging technology. This is
the premier event for coating professionals
who have a hankering for what’s the next
generation of technology. The PC Summit
bridges the gap between the scientists that
are generating the latest technology and
the market that seeks it.
The PC Summit covers the gamut of
powder coating technology—pretreatment
processes, application techniques, curing
technology, novel raw materials, instrumentation,
and of course powder coating
innovations. It’s a meeting of the minds of
the best and the brightest technologists in
powder coatings and related technologies.
This is our third annual PC Summit,
and it is composed of a full day of chemistry
and technology fundamentals followed
by a symposium of the powder industry’s
premier experts expounding upon emerging
technology that is destined to change
the coating industry.
Attendees will experience an up-close
demonstration of how powder coatings are
made from raw material choices through
mixing, extrusion, grinding and ultimate
electrostatic application. A live presen-
tation of powder coating evaluation techniques
and instrumentation will also be
provided by industry professionals.
If you are a coatings professional thirsting
for the latest knowledge in powder
technology, this is the place to be. Past
Summits have been attended by people
from all over the world representing the
entire spectrum of the powder coating process.
This is the only technical event that
covers all aspects of powder coating technology.
The unique combination of handson
demonstrations, classroom tutorials,
exhibits and symposium underscores the
distinctive nature of the PC Summit. We
hope to see you in Columbus in June!
