What is new in wood finishing? A full-day finishing symposium before the 2017 AWFS Fair will
explore new technologies and best methods that
you can use in your business. Newer finishes such
as polyester, polyurethane and UV finishes will be
discussed, along with water-borne and low-emission products, and powder coating.
The full-day seminar, developed by FDMC
magazine, is an opportunity to bring questions to
suppliers and finishing experts face-to-face.
It takes place in the Las Vegas Convention Center, the same venue as AWFS Fair, on Tuesday, July
18. Pricing is $229 early bird before June 30; $295
regular, including lunch and reception after.
Phil Stevenson of AWFI, a leading finishing
consultant, will talk about how to organize a
finishing system within a company rather than
training a person that could leave, as well as ways
to measure finishing performance.
Jason Chiu of Centre for Advanced Wood
Processing will speak on problem solving in wood
finishing, covering spraying and finish application, quality, dust mitigation, and finish process
issues, including some of the newest methods and
