Can we change our businesses in the search for company performance and profit?

How REACH has helped the coatings industry

It’s very true that Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation & restriction of CHemicals (REACH) is probably one of the most used terms for the chemical industry - and also true that it could be nominated for the award of the most negative buzzword of recent years.
However, I firmly believe that REACH polices have benefited our industry. They have meant a reduction in animal testing and a more structured system, which can only benefit us moving forward.

Carbon footprint: the decisive criterion for coatings?

Sustainable material and product concepts are fundamental for maintaining a livable environment.

Smart Coatings in Orlando and superhydrophobic coatings

I just came from the Smart Coatings 2011 in Orlando. Nice weather and location! It was well-attended with a number of lectures on the use of block copolymers templates, layer-by-layer deposition coatings, polymer brush grafting, novel methods for optical coatings, and new concepts for superhydrophobic surfaces.
