TC-CCAI FINISHING Q & A EVENT
Submitted by Pat Cullen
It was a packed room at Grumpy’s Restaurant in Roseville on Thursday, Nov. 14th with an estimated 45 attendees for a
presentation by Marty Korecky, Mgr. of Akzo Nobel Applications Engineering Lab. The event started out with dinner
and then Marty gave an outstanding presentation on “A Practical Look at Common Finishing Problems – Causes & Solutions”
Some of the topics that Marty touched on were substrates, soils to be removed, types of steel, pretreatment, common
application problems and common curing problems. Q & A followed the presentation and in response to one question,
Marty said that the most common problems that he deals with are coating appearance and application issues.
Thanks to TC Chapter Board member Tom Poppitz for arranging this event. Marty’s presentation was very well received
by those in attendance as evident from all of the questions afterward.
On another note, the name of Stan Kaufmann came up for the “Pot of Money” drawing. Stan was not in attendance so
next meeting’s amount will go to $50.00.
