Learn About Safer Alternatives for Surface Preparation for the Coating Industry

Join the CCAI Wisconsin Chapter for a presentation on the importance of surface preparation as it relates to coatings performance, adhesion and finished quality. Surface preparation has a direct relationship with the final surface coatings and therefore it cannot be emphasized enough that for good and permanent adhesion end users need to ensure a superior surface preparation for all types of liquid and powder finishes.

Bobbie Pettit, President of Hi-Lite Solutions, LLC  will discuss innovations, options and necessary considerations and key tools to safely clean and prepare almost any surface for all types of liquid and powder finishes for all types of finishing systems. The vast majority of coating failures can be directly attributed to inadequate surface preparation, which affects coating adhesion. The single most important function that can influence paint performance is the quality of the surface.

Solvent alternatives are now the new normal for surface preparation in the coating industry and green solutions are more important than ever. This should be an interesting education for both experienced finishers, new system start-ups as well as anyone looking to improve their current operation.
