President’s Message – December 2020

Dear PSCT Members,

I want to thank Dr. Christy Martin from INEOS Pigments, who gave an excellent presentation on pigments relating properties to coating performance. She offered a unique perspective on the challenges and opportunities that exist between pigment producers and coating formulators.

Unfortunately, due to the rise in COVID 19 cases and respecting Allegheny County’s stay-at-home order, we reversed our decision announced at the October meeting to hold our annual holiday gathering. We are saddened not to meet this year but know it is the best decision for our members and the community.

As we spend more time at home this holiday season, it is an excellent opportunity to nudge high school seniors and college students to begin the PSCT Scholarship application. The application can be found on the PSCT website. Any questions surrounding the application process can be directed to Karen Hollertz, our Scholarship Committee Chair. She and other members of the committee very generously donate their time to this essential duty.

As this year comes to an end, I hope everyone enjoys this rare moment in history when life has will slow down as we approach the holidays. I sincerely wish everyone a joyous Christmas and Hanukkah!

Chris Chaousy

PSCT President 2020-2021
