Catexel - Opportunities in coatings´ quest for going cobalt-free - now and in the future
Dr. Ronald Hage

Perspectives on the status of the alkyd coatings market

The challenge of replacing cobalt for the global coatings market remains.

Paint makers need more options in the face of regulatory reform.

Learn how R&D and the supply chain can support the requirement for fully optimised systems that satisfy commercial, operational, sustainability and corporate responsibility concerns.

In the two-part paper, Catexel´s CTO Dr. Ronald Hage - alongside independent market experts Dr. Hugh Gibbs and William Weaver - addresses:

  • Key market challenges and predictions
  • Crucial developments to-date
  • Relative pros and cons of current cobalt alternatives
  • Likely future innovation sources

Polycarbodiimides as classification-free and easy to use crosslinkers for water based coatings - STAHL

Polycarbodiimides as classification-free and easy to use crosslinkers for water-based coatings

Crosslinking is widely practiced to improve the performance of coatings, including wear, abrasion and chemical resistances. Stahl successfully examined the performance of polycarbodiimides as a safe and sustainable crosslinker. Read the results for different substrates and the pH and pot life effects.

Atlas Ametek - Weather Durability Testing of Paints and Coatings

Will My Coatings Last Outdoors?

Weather durability testing is key to understanding coating "robustness” under various conditions to prevent failures. Often, inappropriate test methods are used, while leaders in coatings and weathering testing have shown the way to reliable testing with the right technologies and methods.

This paper introduces natural accelerated weathering techniques highlighting recent testing technology advances and methods for improved corrosion, lab and outdoor accelerated weathering testing for coatings.

A novel 2-Pack Waterborne Epoxy System that Works Like a Solventborne

A new class of amine hardener dispersions for 2K-epoxy application proves that increased productivity, reduced environmental impact and health hazard can be met. BECKOCURE EH 2260 is the central piece of the Easy Cure System. Combined with BECKOPOX® EP 2384w/57WA or BECKOPOX® 387w/52WA, it meets different requirements for protective coatings in terms of hardness, flexibility or speed of curing.

Evonik - White Paper - Innovative Binder Technology for High-Solids Industrial Paints

Innovative Binder Technology for High-Solids Industrial Paints

Solventborne paints have demonstrated over decades that the are easy to handle and are distinguished by a very wide processing window.The technology is reliable and established worldwide.

However, since EC Directive 1999/13 came into force, many soventborne paints in European countries no longer meet the regulations for reducing organic volatiles.

Experience shows that, with conventional binder technology, it is not possible to formulate high-solids paints with fewer then 250 g/L VOC. Simply reducing the solvent content in existing medium-solids paints to meet legal requirements results in a highly viscous paint which cannot be applies. To simply reduce the non-volatile components (NVC) in paints requires major changes in the molecular structure of the binder.
