President’s Message – November 2019

Dear PSCT Members,

I would like to thank Kurt Olson, a PPG R&D Fellow, for taking the time last month to share his expertise in new coatings technologies. It was fascinating to hear about innovations such as coatings that can keep an airplane cool and paints that know when corrosion is starting. His slides may be found on the PSCT website.
If you have a student in high school or in college, consider having them apply for the Hiram P. Ball Scholarship, and if your student has a STEM major, the STEM grant as well. See the application found at the end of this newsletter for the requirements. The golf outing, which is held every year in September, is the sole fund raiser for the scholarship and grant. Note that the date of the 2020 golf outing has been set for September 9, which is the Thursday after Labor Day. If you might be interested in chairing the 2020 golf outing committee, please talk to someone on the board.

The November 14 meeting will feature a presentation by Dave Loveday of Gamry on EIS and other electrochemical methods. We hope to see you there! Please forward this newsletter to your associates in the Pittsburgh area who do work in this area.

Cheryl Roberts
PSCT President 2019-2020
