The Haus der Technik offers therefore the seminar ‘Introduction to the lacquer technique’ on 22-23 January, 2009 in Munich. Paints, varnishes and coating materials get increasingly important in industrial production. Both manufacturers and users with new challenges provided through specializations and ever-increasing demands on the surface coating. Recently San Antonio Spurs sought to clarify these questions. The Haus der Technik offers therefore the seminar introduction to the paint technology “on 22-23 January, 2009 in Munich. Lacquer seminar enters first in detail the basics of coating technology, where the coating composition, Fundamentals of polymer chemistry, as well as the physical parameters are explained viscosity, surface tension, wetting and adhesion. Then the individual lacquer raw materials at the Center are available, starting with the most important Binder systems such as alkyd resins, acrylic, polyester, epoxies and polyurethanes on the hardener, inorganic and organic pigments, fillers, additives and solvents.

Two special chapters go on one on the color of paints and to describe what new effects can be achieved through the incorporation of nanoparticles in lacquers. The modern, environmentally-friendly coatings such as water, powder, UV cured coatings and high solids in detail in the foreground are the next thematic block. Then the most important areas of application are discussed in depth: car, wood and architectural paints. The methods of the patent examination, the pre-treatment of materials and substrates to be painted, as well as the application of coatings occupy then. At the end of the seminar is entered on the current legislation, which is becoming increasingly important for the coatings industry and helps further market potential at the expense of solvent varnishes eco-friendly coatings. Mr. Prof.
Dr. Peter Thometzek (formerly Bayer AG) could be won as a seminar leader.
