IMTMA Training Centre

Fundamentals of painting and coating technologies

Date : 21 to 22 October, 2019

@ BIEC, 10th Mile, Tumkur Road, Madavara Post, Bangalore


The purpose of painting / coating a given surface is two-fold. First it protects from corrosion and second it serves as décor, adding visual appeal of the product. Any painting / coating process involves substrate surface preparation, application of the coating and drying of the coating. Thorough knowledge about the components of paint and powder formulations, their application methods including drying and curing is essential to achieve the optimum productivity and quality levels. Lack of knowledge in painting / powder coating leads 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 21 and 22 October 2019 at Bangalore.
