Module 2 | The coating - Raw materials, formulation, manufacturing

11 - 13 November 2020 | Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Developing a good working formulation is anything but easy. Binders, fillers, additives and pigments all have to work together in perfect harmony. What is more, each and everyone of the ingredients can interact with the others – sometimes in a way you don’t expect. Of course, to a certain degree this is common in all development projects. But a sound and comprehensive knowledge of the typical properties of formulation ingredients will help you to reach your target faster and more efficiently. This seminar will teach you precisely how to accomplish this, along with typical processes involved in paint production, such as the dispersion process.  After attending this seminar, you will have the necessary knowledge to master paint development all the way from the lab through to manufacturing.

Your key-learnings:

•    Which effects can be achieved with additives?
•    What are the key categories for binders? A short introduction
•    What are the most important recipe parameters and how do you develop a recipe for the various coating systems?
•    How is a formulation developed?
•    How can solvents enable solutions?
•    What comprises the dispersing process?
•    What are the steps and procedures involved in paint production?
•    How to avoid surface defects by better manufacture and application?
•    What are general properties of pigments as colorants and effect pigments?
•    Corrosion and anticorrosive pigments for coatings - a never-ending story?
•    What are the properties of nanoscale pigments and fillers and where are they used? 
•    What are the most important fillers and how can their coating  properties be assessed?
•    Do we need a different range of pigments in future?
