Trends in automotive coating?

Thursday, 30 June 2011 | Posted by: Kirsten Wrede, European Coatings Journal

The coating of automotive parts has come to play an important role within the industry, as coatings can improve the surface of both exterior and interior parts visually. In addition, they are also used to generate comfortable tactile properties like soft-touch, warm, matte and leather-like. Due to current regulations, more and more waterbased solutions are being developed.

Now, I would like to know what the current trends and challenges for state-of-the-art automotive coatings are. What materials and technologies are being developed? Have plastic substrates already outperformed metals? What other substrates are relevant? What about glass and wood? And what influence does the "green” issue really have on automotive coating? Is it as high as can be read everywhere? And what does "green” mean in this respect? I could also imagine that the European, Asian, American markets have different preferences regarding colours, functions etc. I would be happy to share views on this with you.
