A workshop on Uncertainty in the Coatings Industry will be held January 24, 2014, at the Hyatt Regency Houston in Houston, Texas. Sponsored by ASTM International Committee D01 on Paint and Related Coatings, Materials and Applications, the workshop will be held in conjunction with the standards development meetings of the committee.
During this workshop, ASTM will look at three common activities and the devices used to collect data to reduce uncertainty associated with colour, coating thickness and viscosity. Of the three, colour is the most recent to emerge from subjective uncertainty to objective uncertainty. With both coating thickness and viscosity, the levels of uncertainty are dependent on several factors associated with the particular devices accuracy and precision.
To that end ASTM will have a closer examination of colour testing presented by Nick Barnes of Tintometer Ltd. In addition to Nick’s presentation, there will be a presentation on coating thickness testing from John Fletcher of Elcometer Ltd and a presentation on Viscosity from Cliff Schoff of Schoff Associates.
Online registration opens approximately eight weeks before the workshop and closes January 22. There is no attendance fee for ASTM members, presenters and students. The fee for non-ASTM members is US$50 online and US$75 onsite. Visit www.astm.org/D01WrkshpJan_2014 for additional meeting and registration information.
