New format for BAMA’s Aerosol Technology

The British Aerosol Manufacturers Association (BAMA) will this year combine the theoretical and practical aspects of its world-renowned Aerosol Technology course.

Delivered by industry experts, BAMA’s two-day course covers everything from aerosol regulations, formulations and filling, to advice on propellants, valves and containers. In previous years, those who completed the course were given the option to take part in a practical day in a laboratory later in the year.

The new format means delegates will not only learn about valves, the basics of sealing the valve to the can and filling different formulations, but also be able to carry out lab tests on aerosols that measure discharge rate, particle size distribution and flammability.

Patrick Heskins, BAMA chief executive, said: “This course will benefit those across all functions within the industry. Whether you work in R&D or procurement, are a line operative or senior manager, this course distils all aspects of aerosol technology, showing how each part of the aerosol interacts to create a packaging format unlike any other.

“The new course will not only minimise travelling time and costs for those taking part, but deliver the practical experience while the theory is still fresh in their mind.”

The cost of the course now includes overnight accommodation and an evening meal, where you can spend time networking with course tutors and other delegates, plus learn more about the history of the industry in an informal setting.

The new Technology Course will be taking place on Tuesday 17th and Wednesday 18th March 2020 at The Woburn Hotel, Woburn, Milton Keynes. Spaces are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
