Coatings

Manufacturers rely on coatings to both protect and beautify products. A coating is any protective or decorative film applied to the surface of an object for the purpose of increasing utility and aesthetic appeal. Coatings are made of several chemical ingredients, which may include resins, pigments, solvents, and additives. Coatings require proper mixing, surface preparation, application, and curing.

These classes explain the fundamental nature of coatings and their application. The class content addresses coating composition, surface preparation, and the processes for applying coatings. Classes also address common coating defects and the process of troubleshooting such defects.
