Good looks are not everything

As a newcomer to the world of paints and coatings, I find myself asking what requirements automotive coatings must meet nowadays. The very first one, of course, is aesthetics – they should make the car look beautiful and desirable. But aesthetics alone do not make a good car paint.

Never ending story: bisphenol A

During the last weeks I came across several times with the uncomfortable topic "bisphenol A". For example Sid Harris mentioned it in his article in Focus on Powder Coatings where he reported on the use of Schiff based replacement for bisphenol A. Harris pointed out, that is it not only feasible as a potential safe alternative to BPA, but it also offers considerable improvements in both mechanical and chemical resistance properties.Great news! Howeveri In the February issue of Chemical & Engineering News Melody M. Bomgardner reported on the fact, that none of the alternatives developed by the coatings industry works for all foods and beverages. But no reason to throw in the towel! The coatings industry is on a good way and the end consumer will be happy when at one day all products will be free of BPA.
