The 2017 ASC Waterborne Adhesives Short Course
The Waterborne Adhesives Short Course will be held April 3-4, 2017 at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis in Atlanta, Georgia (co-located with the 2017 Annual Spring Convention & EXPO.)
Waterborne adhesives are a logical choice for many end use applications where versatile and environmentally friendly solutions are desired. These low VOC (volatile organic compounds) adhesives are easily formulated to optimize performance for a wide variety of applications where water clean-up is important.
Fundamental knowledge of formulating and use of this adhesive class will help you to select, design, apply and trouble shoot your adhesive package and ultimately add to your bottom line. The two-day course reviews the base polymers used in waterborne adhesives today and how to formulate with additives for specific applications. Attendees will learn common methods of application as well as mechanical and rheological behavior of the adhesive before and after bonding.
Share your knowledge and expertise by presenting at this short course. For inclusion, contact Connie Howe at (301) 986-9700 x104 or email@example.com
Short Course ONLY: ASC Member/End-User: $725 • Nonmember: $1,100
