48 Years in the Coating Lab - A Fun Look Back - Chemquest

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

After working in coating labs for over 45 years, I have seen a lot of changes. This presentation will highlight some of the changes (government regulations, raw materials, etc) and the reasons for them. In some cases, the changes caused more problems than they helped. One example is OSHA. Protecting employees was needed. But some of the original regulations would come as a surprise to most people who were not around then. The same can also be said of the original air pollution regulations.
In a fun way, I will explain some of the things that I have learned (and wished I had learned sooner) over the past four and a half decades.
