New issue of European Coatings Journal is out
Tuesday, 13 December 2016
What do you think about, when you hear someone say powder coatings? Do you think about the absence of VOCs, or the high upfront investment? The latter is maybe the most important reason that is keeping this promising technology a niche application.
However, there is still plenty of room for growth of powder coatings. For example, there are emerging markets where the technology will grow alongside the general coatings market. Where powder coatings will grow and at what pace is described very well in our market report on page 18.
However, taking a look into the future is always tricky. You never really know where the economy is going and how fast technology will evolve. Some innovations could significantly increase the market share of powder coatings. Quite a few of those, such as low temperature curing, are discussed in the technical paper about PU powder coatings on page 22. The author of this article, André Raukamp from Evonik, will tell you more about his findings during our online webinar European Coatings Live on 13 December at 15.00 CET. You can register for free at
