Richard Higgins-CCT, president of HK Research, joined a distinguished group of industry experts to conduct a daylong seminar at the Composite Fabricators Association’s Midwest Composites Conference in South Bend, IN, on March 13, 2003.
The symposium, titled “Improving Gel Coat Cosmetics” offered an in-depth look at the recent advances in low-HAP gel coat products. It covered the manufacture, application and end-properties of these advanced polymers with a focus on enhancing product quality. The novel “team-teaching” interactive format provided an exchange of information and ideas based on the faculty’s collective knowledge and interest of audience members.
