The Chemical Coaters Association International (CCAI) returns to Alabama Power’s Technology Applications Center (TAC) in Calera, Alabama, in February 2017 to present the Powder Coating and Curing Processes Seminar. The seminar provides attendees with important training and valuable networking to increase everyday productivity and improve processes. CCAI is also pleased to announce that a group of enthusiastic members have started the Alabama Chapter to continue CCAI’s mission of working together to build a better finishing industry. 

The two-day seminar features a thorough introduction to the powder coating process, including cleaning and pretreatment, powder coating materials, application equipment and booths, curing options, part movement, running an efficient system and testing methods. The seminar is scheduled for February 21 and 22 and will be co-sponsored by the Infrared Equipment Division of the Industrial Heating Equipment Association and Products Finishing.

Along with the educational instruction, attendees will spend time in the fully-equipped lab at the TAC 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. 

Throughout the past few years, CCAI has hosted quality training at Alabama Power’s TAC and worked with many area suppliers and end-users. There has been increased interest in learning more about the finishing industry and keeping current on the latest trends and technologies within surface finishing.

The Alabama chapter held its kick-off meeting, a plant tour of Alabama Washer and Oven last month and has begun planning its 2017 event calendar. Check the CCAI website regularly for updates.
