Coatings Show Set to Bow Monday in Charlotte

Thursday, April 8, 2010

Comment | More

The second American Coatings Show, scheduled for next week in Charlotte, N.C., will surpass the debut 2008 show in numbers of exhibitors and attendees, the host American Coatings Association says.

The show and concurrent American Coatings (AC) Conference represent the first event of its type scheduled since last year’s merger of the National Paint & Coatings Association and Federation of Societies for Coatings Technology, which created the American Coatings Association (ACA). The former NPCA hosted the initial AC Show in 2008.

The show, featuring the offerings of raw-materials, equipment, and service providers for coatings manufacturing, is expected to outdistance the 330 exhibitors participating in the debut 2008 event. Show hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, April 13 and 14, and 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Thursday, April 15.

The ACA also is anticipating that attendance will eclipse the approximately 5,600 visitors to the 2008 show, while attendance at the AC Conference is expected to top the total of 750 in 2008.

The conference gets under way at 11:30 a.m. Monday with a welcome lunch, conference introduction, awards ceremonies, and two keynote addresses:

• Dennis Ryer, Cook Composities & Polymers, and Robert Enouen, Procter & Gamble Inc., will review a collaboration that produced an innovative raw material for low-VOC coatings based on sucrose ester chemistry; and

• Kenneth M. Perry, BASF, will discuss “Sustaining Innovation and the Environment in Difficult Times.”

The conference technical and education program, which follows the keynote addresses, begins on Monday with a focused session, “Science Today—Coatings Tomorrow.” The session is aimed at offering a glimpse into what advanced polymer and material science will mean for the coatings systems of the future, the ACA says.

In all, the AC Conference program offers 96 presentations in 16 different program sessions spread over three days. Included are six “focus sessions” devoted to topics that the ACA says are the subject of considerable discussion in coatings-technology circles—nanotechnology, smart coatings, bio-based coatings, functional coatings and materials, and water-borne coatings. Also planned are sessions on protective coatings and architectural coatings.

A number of pre-conference tutorials are scheduled immediately prior to the start of the conference, on Monday morning. Other highlights will include the Roon Awards papers and the Mattiello Memorial Lecture, to be delivered by Willie Lau, Dow Construction Chemicals. Lau will discuss “Frontiers in Emulsion Polymerization for Coatings.”
