The Polyurethane Adhesives Short Course will be held October 19-20 at the Wyndham Grand Pittsburgh Hotel (co-located with the 2015 Fall Convention & EXPO.
Polyurethanes are one of the most versatile chemistries used in many adhesive applications due to their outstanding ability to bond a variety of substrates in both rigid and flexible applications. With versatility, however, comes complexity. Optimization of urethane technology is enhanced by a thorough understanding of the reactions between isocyanates, diols, chain extenders and the resulting morphology. This intensive two day short course will cover the chemistry and technology behind 1 and 2 part polyurethane adhesives and sealants including markets, raw materials, reactions, formulating, fundamentals of adhesion, polymer science and physical testing. The instruction by experts in the field, discussions and networking of peers, suppliers, and manufacturers will present an opportunity to advance your knowledge on how to design, select, apply and trouble shoot polyurethane adhesives and ultimately add to your bottom line.
The Polyurethanes Short Course is designed to provide technical professionals a better understanding of the chemistry, technology and fundamentals of polyurethane adhesive and sealants. A knowledge of chemistry is required for full appreciation of course content. Technically oriented business professionals will broaden their knowledge, expand their network and meet the next experts in the supplier, formulating and end user community.
