Why should you view this course?

As many of your peers, you can find it complicated to maintain good adhesion for your adhesives and coatings. Yet with a better understanding of adhesion science, you'd be able to twick formulation and processes for better adhesion in your service environment!


  1. Review principles & techniques that allow you to maximize the adhesion of coatings (formulation and processes twicking)
  2. Learn how to choose the right test protocol to detect failures early
  3. Get advice on your own adhesion challenges by interacting live with our expert Edward Petrie ( >35 year experience)

Who should view this course?

Adhesives and coatings formulators who need support to evaluate and maximize adhesion and durability
