Bio-based coatings: Anything else but cheesy

Adopting renewable innovations is often a challenging task and current percentage ratios of sustainable components remain quite low. So what about a totally bio-based and fully controllable deposition process for the formation of biological coatings? How does that sound to you?

Nature – once more showing off

I have to admit, I am a little jealous of nature´s way to invent new things. How nature is dealing with complex molecules to solve problems in a playfully way. I really like the concept to have an eye for small and hard to discover details in nature in order to find solutions for our lives. Let´s try this concept of creating ideas with the example of a carnivorous plant.

ECS 2015 - an event full of superlatives

The European Coatings SHOW broke the thousand mark: this week the 1,000th exhibitor has registered for the European Coatings SHOW. The highest number ever. So international and so diverse as never before. A wonderful feeling! To me, this means I have to run more at the ECS to meet industry experts and see what the coming two years have in store when it comes to coatings developments. As one thing is for sure, the ECS sets the pace.

How to solve problems: More openness and trust, please!

It’s well known that the coatings industry tends to be a bit conservative and secretive. Paint makers guard their recipes with the same fervour as Gollum watches over his treasure in "Lord of the Rings”, and they are loath to tell their raw materials suppliers anything about the other ingredients in them. Some even go so far as to refuse to say what they use the raw material for. And they are quite entitled to do so. But what if there's an issue with the paint because it fails to perform as expected, or what if someone would like to collaborate on further developing a particular product?
