The Thermoset Resin Formulators Association (TRFA) will celebrate its 10th anniversary at the association’s 2012 Annual Meeting, October 28th-30th, 2012, at the Royal Pacific Resort in Orlando, Florida, US.
TRFA says the two-day Annual Meeting schedule features 16 Technical Papers selected by TRFA’s four Market Focused Committees: Coatings, Civil Engineering and Floorings; Adhesives and Sealants; Composites and Tooling; and Potting, Encapsulation and Electrical. Technical Paper presentations are essential to achieving one of the association's key objectives, which is to be "the premier forum to interact and exchange knowledge among formulators and suppliers."
The schedule also includes a Regulatory Affairs Update, a Table Top Showcase, and the presentation of TRFA’s third annual Excellence in Thermoset Polymer Research Award. TRFA explains that attendees can look forward to ample networking opportunities throughout the schedule, including two luncheons, two receptions and optional networking activities on Saturday, October 27th and Sunday, October 28th. Bruce Burton, Huntsman Performance Products, will serve as Annual Meeting Chair.
For the first time in 2012, the meeting will be preceded by the initial presentation of TRFA’s Epoxy 101 Short Course, an introduction and advanced concepts in the formulation, application and end-uses of thermoset resin technologies for technical and sales/marketing professionals new to the industry, as well as those seeking a refresher. TRFA says the short course offers a value-added opportunity to leverage the benefits of attendance at the TRFA Annual Meeting and/or to provide important training in thermoset resin technology for new employees.
