WHY ATTEND THIS WORKSHOP?

Two-day instruction and hands-on training:


The hands-on, two-day Powder Coating Workshop is an intensive, introductory seminar on powder coating materials, their application, troubleshooting and maintenance, as well as hands-on training.

You should attend if you are:

  • New to a powder coating operation
  • Considering converting from a liquid to a powder coating system
  • Involved in or currently working on a powder coating line

In the classroom, learn the latest:

  • Properties, storage and handling of powder coating materials
  • Application equipment – components, use, maintenance and troubleshooting
  • Powder booth and recovery systems and troubleshooting

Attendees will first learn how the equipment is designed to work, then how to use and maintain it. There will also be a hands-on portion of the workshop in the powder demonstration lab.
