Advances in Technology of Colour Pigments & Dispersion

Face-to-Face Coatings Training Course

Venue: Classroom

Start Date: May 29, 2024

Non-Member Cost: £650

Description

A specialised one-day course exploring the latest developments in effect pigment technology, associated colour physics & dispersion machinery, and optimal pigment dispersion for use in paints & other media. You’ll also learn how to benchmark performance, especially for production of nano-size pigment dispersions and their use in coatings.

Who Should Attend
