Professional Development Programs Stand Out at #PolyCon19

Jennifer Garfinkel

The following blog is a segment of a five-part series regarding the Center for Polyurethanes Industry’s (CPI) 62nd Annual Polyurethanes Technical Conference.

One of the key features that distinguishes the 62nd Polyurethanes Technical Conference from other industry events is the Professional Development Program (PDP). The program offers an opportunity for industry newcomers and seasoned polyurethane professionals to learn through exclusive educational and training courses.

Professional Development Program Highlights: PU 104A and PU 104B

In this blog, we’re diving into the 104 series which provides an overview of the Coatings, Adhesives, Sealants and Elastomer (CASE) market and trends, offering context to the evolving polyurethanes industry.

PU 104A Polyurethane Adhesives and Sealants (Sun. Oct. 6, 9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.)will provide a CASE market overview and explore market trends, including technology drivers and advantages and disadvantages of different chemistries. This session will examine the formulation science behind these products and the testing methods used.

PU 104B: Polyurethane Coatings and Elastomers (Mon. Oct. 7, 9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.)will explore the fundamentals of polyurethane elastomers and coatings. This course will provide deep-dives into trends, applications, and technologies used in the coatings and elastomers markets.

Now in its 16th year, the Polyurethane Professional Development Program (PDP) provides education and training for the global polyurethanes industry. PU 104A and PU 104B are just two of the courses that run concurrently with the Polyurethanes Technical Conference. Those registering for the  PDP receive every course’s training materials. Don’t miss out on this great line-up!
