Complex mixtures of materials require a knowledge of construction and cement chemistry, explains Dr. Wolfram Schmidt, Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM).
What are paints and coatings composed of? Answers to this question are provided by the new reference book "Understanding Coatings Raw Materials".
A new polymer-based, VOC- and silicone-free defoamer prevents foaming in aqueous systems.
A new pouch packaging option for colourants potentially reduces costs for paint companies and improves the impact on the environment.
French researchers synthesised acrylic-styrenic coatings bearing reactive aldehyde functions by copolymerisation of vinylbenzaldehyde with methyl methacrylate, butyl acrylate and styrene comonomers.
A new leveling and slip agent meets the need for performance-enhancing products and can be used in a wide range of coating systems.
Researchers studied the behaviour of amino crosslinkers and their effect on selected epoxy can coatings’ hydrolysis to melamine and formaldehyde into aqueous food simulants.
Crucial raw materials for printing inks have become more expensive for European based ink manufacturers due to currency exchange effects.
Titanium dioxide (TiO2) due to its high refractive index, is widely used in paint industry as a white pigment.
Colourants need to provide color reproducibility, smooth functionality and technical stability, while having no effect on the properties of the final coating.
