“The committee is thrilled to be meeting in-person again and we’ve pulled out all the stops to create a program that is packed with opportunities to learn and network with our industry colleagues,” said John Norton, chair of the Fiberglass Mat Technology Committee.

The event will kick off with the one day-course, Glass Mat 201: A Review of the Chemistry in the Production of Wet Formed Fiberglass Mat covering: dispersion and forming; resins, binders, mixing and application; and drying, curing, and winding.
