KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Aug. 25, 2011)—The American PDA—previously known as the Polyurea Development Association—has approved a new, expanded mission for the organization.
The group said it will now be known as PDA—association for high performance elastomeric technologies.
The new title and tagline takes into account the new direction for the organization, which will add an array of adjacent elastomeric technologies used in coatings and other applications, the association said.
The international trade organization has released a revised mission and a revised statement of purpose, which aims to “advance and promote the market for polyurea and polyurethane elastomeric technologies” by using the industry's shared knowledge.
