Technical Workshops


Chemsultants International presents several technical training workshops during the year in conjunction with key industry associations and service providers.The Pressure Sensitive Tape Council is the North American trade association comprised of world-class Pressure Sensitive Tape manufacturing companies, adhering to the highest standards for producing quality products in an environmentally, socially responsible environment.The Pressure Sensitive Tape Council has, since 1990, offered key educational workshops as part of its Tape University Program.

In 2007, Chemsultants and the Pressure Sensitive Tape Council established the Alliance for Excellence in Tape Testing to provide critical skills to the pressure sensitive tape industry. In doing so, PSTC chose to partner with Chemsultants International as its teaching resource, and in 2010, Chemsultants expanded its partnership with PSTC by hosting workshop sessions at the Chemsultants Technical Training facility.


This course covers details of coating and converting methods, along with in-depth discussion of testing methods and analytical tools. Class is unique in its combination of classroom discussions and lab-based demonstrations, allowing for deep exploration of the course topics.
