EPCEd is offering two of our most popular workshops in 2023. The first is our longest-running workshop, Core-Shell Latex Particles - Fundamental Aspects of Morphology Control. This workshop will be held on the campus of the University of New Hampshire in Durham, NH, USA on June 12-14, 2023.  
EPCEd will finish 2023 by offering our Scale-up and Commercial Production of Emulsion Polymers workshop on November 6-9, 2023 in San Francisco, CA, USA.
New Announcement for 2023

EPCEd is pleased to announce a new partnership with 1st Source Research, a contract research organization located in Raleigh, NC. 1st Source will add experimental capabilities to EPCEd’s portfolio, including leading edge new product development, formulation capabilities, and analytical and testing services. This greatly extends the types of services that the EPCEd-1st Source team can offer. 
EPCEd is a leader in the area of emulsion polymerization and is retained by companies of all sizes to execute projects across this specialty. The company had been searching for a partner with extensive laboratory capabilities, equipment and instrumentation to assist clients with the materials application side of these projects. 
“My partner Michael Cunningham and I are long time academic veterans, both with substantial industry experience, and we realized there was a need to align ourselves with a respected company with the experimental capabilities that 1st Source offers,” said Donald Sundberg, Founder and President of EPCEd. “Our extensive research and emulsion polymerization activity will be significantly enhanced when we can bring a total solution process to our customers”. 
EPCEd is an international consulting firm with offices in the USA and Canada, specializing in emulsion polymerization science and technology, and is managed by highly respected academic veterans Donald Sundberg and Michael Cunningham. EPCEd is retained by companies to assist in their process and product development, develop corporate tutorials and other educational materials as well as create and implement a wide range of workshops in the area of emulsion polymerization.

​The next five issues of our "Did You Know....." feature will be a collaborative effort. We have partnered with Bruggemann Chemicals to discuss a number of topics a number of topics related to the use of redox initiators in emulsion polymerization. Both organizations hope you find this series informative and useful.
