President’s Message-April 2019

Dear PSCT Members, I would like to thank Tony Moy of BASF for taking time out of his schedule to come and speak to all of us about dispersant technologies. Dispersant chemistry is something that was relatable regardless of the type of coatings each of us are involved. The data shared showing the benefits of choosing the correct chemistry and concentration was educational. I also heard … [Read More...]

The Board would like to thank everyone for their continued support and we are all excited for the year to come.


Paint Pot

At the March meeting, Jim Wasik’s name was drawn. He was present but opted to forego the prize, so another name was drawn: Valerie Sherbondy. Valerie had already won the pot once this year, so she also opted to forego the prize. Finally, Dwight Weldon’s name was drawn. He was not present, so $25 will be
added to the pot. The Paint Pot drawing will be for $50 at the April meeting.

PSCT Winter Extravaganza – Trivia at Couch Brewery

About 20 PSCT Members, Guests and Children tested their knowledge of chemistry, geography, general knowledge and thankfully no 1980’s popular songs (IMHO – there weren’t any). Here’s a good test for all Chemistry aficionados, no cheating by looking them up, Final Question of Trivia Night – name at least 7 elements whose symbol of the Periodic Table is the same as a State’s Postal abbreviation. It was a close battle between the various teams of 3 or 4, but team PPG+1, well some ex-PPGers: Dan Bickford, Mark DePasquale, Jim Wasik – all associated with PPG at some time and Rob Castaneda – Lanxess, proved to be the holders of a lot of useless information. Some special prizes were awarded to those who were more challenged: Preparing for the ACT, First, Second and Third grade vocabulary tests, etc. The Beer was good, the Food extraordinary, the Couch Staff friendly and the Trivia Master a lot of fun. Everyone had a good time. A special thanks for Jeff Scherm and Art Kasson for setting things up with the Couch Brewery and Cheryl Roberts for organizing the caterer and food selection. Each went out of their way to make it a very great extravaganza!

2018 Golf Outing

50 Golfers enjoyed a respite from the Pittsburgh rain, well almost. As far as anyone can tell, it was a grand outing and everyone had fun. A great BIG THANK YOU to all. A special Thank You goes out to Sam Puglisi who worked his magic again to make the outing a great success. Through the support of the golfers, sponsors and door prize donations, the PSCT will be able to continue offering scholarships to members’ students. The winning team proved to be excellent golfers at 13 under par. Oh, wait, didn’t some of these guys win last year too? Great work or great use of Mulligans.
Everyone enjoyed the raffle whose proceeds also enhance the scholarship fund. As far as the raffle BIG prize, with the last 2 prizes a Ping Putter and 2 tickets to a Steeler game, Chris Mirt from R & D Coatings was given the option; he chose the Steeler
tickets. Mel Lipsitz won the putter. Not sure, but Chris may now ask for a ‘”re-do”!
