Course Title
Fundamentals of Resins and Polymers for Paints and Coatings

Course Objectives
Resins and polymers are the most important components of paints and coatings. Final properties and applications of coatings are mainly dictated by the type of resin, their chemistry, crosslinking, beside other factors. With availability of different coating technologies today – water-based, powder coatings, high-solids, UV-cure – the chemistry formulation and applications of resins used becomes more complex. This course is designed to provide fundamental understanding of major resin types, how are they prepared and how resins are designed for specific end-use applications. As such, the course will cover all major resin types used in solvent-based, water-borne, high-solids and UV-cure coatings and their cross-linking technologies will be discussed.

Who should attend?

This course is useful for those personnel involved in resin/coating/ink/adhesive product development, formulators, technical service personnel, coatings/resin specifiers, technical sales and customer support staff, research and development chemists and all others who seek knowledge in this specific area.

What you will learn

  • Develop overall understanding of resins and polymers and their currently used technologies.
  • Learn how resins are designed (formulated) and prepared, and how one resin type is different from another. (e.g. water-borne vs. high-solid resins).
  • Learn what those numbers means in resin Technical Data Sheets (TDS).
  • Gain valuable understanding of cross-linking techniques and how they are leveraged for property development in coatings.
  • Learn how resins are designed for low VOC and green and sustainable coatings and their future trends.
