WASHINGTON, MICHIGAN – Saint Clair Systems Vice President of Engineering & Technology Michael Bonner will deliver two presentations at Materials Science & Technology 2016, a technical meeting and exhibition that brings together engineers, suppliers, scientists and students to discuss current research and applications in the materials community.
The annual conference will be held Oct. 23-27 in Salt Lake City, Utah and will host more than 2,000 presentations and a selection of special events.
Mr. Bonner’s presentations will cover topics that give attendees information on industrial coating practices and equipment designed to streamline manufacturing processes, reduce material use, and lessen costs. Details on these presentations are as follows:
- "Application Temperature Smooths Coating to Improve Corrosion Resistance" – Monday, Oct. 24 at 3:40 p.m., during MS&T16’s Advanced Coatings for Wear and Corrosion Protection symposium. This presentation will focus on how the temperature of a coating, when applied, influences the consistency and continuity of the final finish, how this affects the coating and adhesion of the coating layer, and how these factors determine the corrosion prevention performance of the coating.
- "The Profile Correction Module: A Whole New Approach to Coil Coating" – Wednesday, Oct. 26 at 9:50 a.m., during MS&T16’s Advanced Manufacturing Technologies symposium. Mr. Bonner will discuss the technology that shaped the Profile Correction Module (PCM), which is designed to make coating processes more efficient by creating 3-roll nip feed coating performance on standard 2-roll coating systems.
MS&T16 is organized by five leading societies in the materials science and engineering field: the American Ceramic Society (ACerS); the Association for Iron & Steel Technology (AIST); ASM International; The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS); and NACE International.
