President’s Message – January

Dear PSCT Members:

I hope all of you had an enjoyable Holiday Season, and celebrated the beginning of a wonderful New Year.  Sorry to say the Steelers will not be in the playoffs for the second year in a row so we will have to practice patience. They say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger so let’s hope the Steelers are a stronger team than ever in 2014.

Returning to the business at hand, I would like to thank Bayer Material Science for sponsoring the December meeting at Freddie’s and Nexeo Solutions for providing the libations for the meeting.  All of the revenue raised from the December meeting will be going to the Scholarship Fund.

I would also like to thank Dr. Eric Fernandez, Director of Business Development for Coatings and Antiblock at EP Minerals.  Dr. Fernandez, an expert on the uses of diatomite in coatings, spoke to us on “Diatomite as a Matting or Flatting agent; Mechanisms and Properties”.

Our next meeting is January 13th and will be held at Domenicos in Cranberry Twp, 20550 RT 19N (Piazzo Plazo). The link to Domenicos website to preview the venue, or obtain directions is: Our speaker for this month is Dr. Zamanzadeh of MATCO Services, Inc.  Dr. Zee, as he is affectionately known, will be speaking on “Optimizing Corrosion Protection by Coatings”.
