Fundamentals of Painting and Coating Technologies

Date : 25 to 26 July, 2019

@ 12/5, D1 Block, MIDC Chinchwad, Pune


In today’s manufacturing scenario, where shortage of raw material, power & increasing pressure to reduce costs are the order of the day, ‘Painting / Coating application’ is possibly the most troubled issue. While we are nearly at par with global standards in metal working, we definitely lack in finishing and Powder Coating Applications operations.

The stark difference is visible when it comes to exporting our goods. Lack of knowledge in Defect Analysis especially in painting / powder coating and Buck passing between paint or powder suppliers vs equipment suppliers lead to high rework and rejection rates.


Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organising a 2 day programme on Fundamentals of Painting and Coating Technologies on 25 - 26 July 2019 at Pune.

Focus Areas

  • Paint – Types, Classification, Properties (Thinners, Raw Material Properties & Contribution, 1K & 2K Paints)
  • Primer, Surfacer, Filler (Metallic Base Coats, Clear Coats, Inspecting wet Paint, Mixing, Handling of paints)
  • Paint application method, Importance
  • Pre-treatment before Coating
  • Spray Painting technology (Air Spray, HVLP, Air Less, Air Assisted, Electrostatic)
  • Paint Spray Techniques - Films with discussion
  • Powder Coating Technology, Applications (Quality of Finish, Defects identification, Root Cause Analysis, Remedies)
