About Us

SCANZ exists to promote the science and technology of paint, printing ink, pigments, varnishes, resins, plastics, solvents, drying and non-drying chemicals through discussion, lectures, conferences, exhibitions and printed papers.

By doing so SCANZ works to raise the standard and the scientific, technical and professional knowledge of persons engaged in these industries.

National activities are coordinated by a management committee headed by the President and made up of delegates from within the members.

Membership is personal, rather than corporate, and is by application.
