PCI 2021 Scholarship Program Opens
The Powder Coating Institute (PCI) is now accepting applications for its 2021 Scholarship Program. Designed to assist students studying in areas that can lead to a career in powder coating, the program includes the PCI General Scholarship and five corporate-named scholarships:
- the PCI/Axalta Scholarship
- the PCI/Gema Scholarship
- the PCI/Nordson Ken Kreeger Scholarship
- the PCI/PPG Scholarship
- and the PCI/IFS Coatings Scholarship.
“Attracting qualified talent to continue to expand the industry is a top priority for PCI members,” states Kevin Coursin, PCI’s Executive Director. “PCI is glad that we can continue to offer these scholarships to promote sustainable growth in the powder coating industry.”
Candidates must complete the online application and submit supporting documents by March 15, 2021. For more information visit powdercoating.org/scholarship.
Representatives from Axalta Coating Systems, Gema USA, IFS Coatings, Nordson Corporation, and PPG will be a part of the selection process for each of their respective scholarships. Scholarships will be awarded in April and recipients will be notified by the PCI Executive Director.
New solutions for powder coating centers combine powder preparation, conveyance, dosing and color changes into a fully automated, closed system.
Question: I’ve been told that a powder coated part cannot be “touched-up.” I have some patio furniture that I had powder coated and the powder coating shop that did the work for me stripped the threads in holes used to rack the part.
What is right for the customer?
