Following the great success and sold out crowd in October, CCAI has set the date for the next Powder Coating and Curing Processes Seminar at Georgia Power’s Customer Resource Center (CRC) in Atlanta, GA.  The seminar is scheduled for February 24 & 25, 2015.  The encore event will again be co-sponsored by the Atlantic Coast Chap

ter of CCAI, the Infrared Division of the Industrial Heating Equipment Association and Products Finishing magazine.


The day and a half seminar will feature a thorough introduction to the powder coating process, including cleaning & pretreatment, powder coating materials, application equipment & booths, curing options, part movement and running an efficient system.  All of the classroom training will be provided by industry experts from some of the leading companies in the finishing business including: Nordson Corp., Axalta, George Koch Sons LLC, Coral Chemical Co., Pneu-Mech Systems, KMI Systems and Fostoria, a division of TPI Corp.  

Attendee evaluations from the recent seminar gave the presenters exceptional ratings overall.  Some of the comments that appeared repeatedly on speaker evaluations were: "Very knowledgeable and helpful”, "Great speaker”, Captivating and concise”, "Impressive, simplified and interesting”.  The format of the seminar allows the audience to participate and interact with all of the speakers which adds to the attendee experience.

Along with the educational instruction, attendees will spend time in the state-of-the-art lab at the CRC to experience live demonstrations and opportunities for hands-on training. This interactive format allows attendees to get applied knowledge of the technologies they are learning in the classroom.  Attendees will have the chance to powder coat and cure a part onsite to take home with them.

Registration fee includes classroom training, the opportunity to experience hands-on demonstrations in a laboratory setting and copies of both CCAI’s new Powder Coating for Industrial Finishing Applications training manual plus a copy of Infrared Process Heating Handbook for Industrial Applications, published by the IRED division of the Industrial Heating Equipment Association.  Breaks and lunch are also included in the registration cost.  Fees to attend are $150 for CCAI members and $225 for non-members.

Attendees will walk away with increased knowledge of the complete powder coating process, including the various curing options available today and two excellent training manuals.  This is an exceptional value for an educational course of this caliber.  There is not another course available that offers such high quality training at such a reasonable price.
