Membership

Who can Join?

Membership is open to anyone who has an interest in coatings, printing ink or adhesives. The science of surface coatings is involved in a wide range of industries. Consequently SCANZ draws its members from such diverse fields as paint, printing ink, adhesives and resins. Raw material suppliers and end users of these industries are also represented.

SCANZ aims to foster interest in all areas of surface coatings, not just the technical aspects. In line with this policy, its current membership includes people from purchasing, marketing and sales as well as scientists and technicians employed in the research and development, quality management and technical service fields.
