In that talk we will see how to select the most appropriate abrasive pretreatment, the importance in particle size and the new hydro-sanding systems," Caprari explained.
He added that the VOC control talk will address issues such as the importance of reducing the level of solvents, alternatives for that replacement, solutions for high-thickness coatings, among others.
"Cubrecol is known throughout Latin America for the quality of its exhibitors, the possibilities of making new commercial and technical friendships. The colleagues who have been there have been impressed with the quality," caprari said when asked about his participation in the fair.
