Architectural coatings

22 September 2020

Decorative and protecting

My home is my castle – but with several differences. Apart from the fact that modern standard houses tend to be less frequently haunted than castles, most of them are usually fitted out with additional insulating materials. And then they are given a lick of paint on the outside. As a new-era lord of the manor, you also know that aesthetics matter. Both indoors and outdoors. However, architectural coatings clearly have a lot more to offer. In addition to the protection that outdoor paints provide against UV radiation and inclement weather, modern customers appreciate not having to put up with the smell of paint indoors.

You will learn just how different the requirements imposed on indoor and outdoor coatings are. You will also discover the requirements imposed on paints by the materials of modern-day "castles” – wood and steel – and the ways in which the requirements on them differ. This seminar provide insights into the current debate on water-borne versus solvent-borne technologies.
