This new course is offered in response to the many requests from attendees at STLE's other MWF courses who asked for more specifics on formulation. The course begins with some universal formulating basics, such as experimental design, order of additions for ingredients, and considerations when scaling up from beakers to large blending tanks. Also covered will be base stocks, performance additives, emulsifier selection, HLB, qualification tests, optimization for stability, both in the drum and in use, bioresistance, microbicide selection and use, and recalcitrant functional additives. Finally, instructors will discuss formulating for disposability and for global distribution. While several example formulations will be presented, this course will not be providing specific ready-to-use commercial formulations.
