In association with their Annual Technical Meeting, TAPPI’s Fiberglass Mat Technology Committee is pleased to announce their 2018 Short Course for producers of wet-formed nonwoven fiberglass mat:

Fiberglass Mat Production Issues

For the past two years, we have held extremely popular short courses with close to 100 participants each year, addressing “Fundamentals of Fiberglass Mat Production”. This year’s short course promises to be even better. We have assembled a great team of industry “experts” with over 200 years of combined experience. These specialists will discuss and answer questions on all phases of fiberglass mat production including head boxes and dispersion, forming fabrics, roll coatings, glass sizing, biocides and defoamers, slitters, defect detectors and binder curing.

We will again look directly at the fiberglass mat production process, looking at problem areas and opportunities with a panel of experienced experts in fiberglass mat production. With each point there will be opportunities to ask questions and discuss real world problems. This is an opportunity for experienced production personnel to meet with their peers, ask questions and share problems and experiences. This is a special opportunity for new engineers and supervisors to hear from experienced experts and seasoned managers and gain from their hard earned knowledge.

In addition to the short course there will be a second day of technical papers on directly related fiberglass mat production issues covering: glass fiber supply, specialty mat over view, product regulations, drying and curing, research and pilot line opportunities and sustainability. We will also have 3M’s ever popular “Roofing Market Forecast”.
