The objective of this workshop is to provide industrial scientists and engineers with an intensive, interactive workshop on the rheological characteristics of synthetic latices as they are produced via the emulsion polymerization process. The addition of such latices to coating formulations with pigments, fillers and rheological modifiers provides the participant an opportunity to grasp the fundamental rheological principles of these highly dispersed, fluid systems.
This workshop is directed towards those in industry who use laboratory, pilot and/or commercial scale reactors to make latex for use in coating formulations, pressure sensitive adhesives, caulks and sealants. In equal measure it is also directed towards those who purchase latex for use in their own formulated dispersions for similar applications.
