14th Advanced Coating Symposium Proceedings

Print or Flash Drive Version

The 14th Advanced Coating Symposium was held October 4 – 6, 2016 at the Innventia AB Headquarters in Stockholm, Sweden. For more than twenty years, the TAPPI Advanced Coating Symposium (ACS) has been the preeminent forum to present and discuss leading edge, fundamental research in paper coating, surface properties, converting and printing operations. Participants include the world’s leading experts including suppliers, university researchers, paper manufacturers, product development and technical service professionals and printing and graphic arts specialists.

The symposium brings together the world’s preeminent paper coating experts as they discuss successes, failures and best practices employed to bring their best laboratory concepts to commercial reality.
