Powder Coating 101 Workshop - Basic Essentials

PCI's Powder Coating 101 Workshop: Basic Essentials is an introduction to powder coating that focuses on materials, application, reclamation, testing & evaluation, quality control, the powder manufacturing process and much more. Attendees will gain knowledge of powder coatings and the powder coating process from industry experts as well as have the opportunity to network with speakers and other attendees during a reception on day 1 and lunch on day 2. This PCI training workshop is unbiased and commercial free and provides a great foundation for the technical conference that follows later in the week.
