The recent European Coatings Show in Nürnberg provided a golden opportunity for the Coatings and Allied Industries to present the very best they can offer to the world. The results were impressive overall. However, there is still a long way to go as far as Sustainable Development is concerned where, in terms of school ratings, I gave the industries an average of a B-, despite some occasional star contributions.
Sustainability and functionality were the dominating topics at this year’s European Coatings Show and Congress. They also apply to the packaging coating segment, with an additional emphasis on product/food safety.
