Diab has announced the next three dates for its popular Core College event.
The first of the three will take place on Thursday, May 25th at the Composites Training Center of Cerritos College, Norwalk, California. The second will be held on Thursday, June 15th. at Diab Inc.’s headquarters in DeSoto, Texas. The third will be on Tuesday, September 12th. at the Dartmouth, Nova Scotia premises of OP Fiberglass.
Core College allows those involved in composite/GRP construction to get an update on the latest developments. The event covers sandwich composite theory, composite processing techniques and an overview of new material development. In the case of the DeSoto event (which has been extended to one and half days) a tour of Diab’s core manufacturing facility is also included.
Although primarily aimed at technical personnel, Core College may also prove very useful to sales and marketing people who would like a better insight into the benefits that sandwich composites can provide to a finished product.
