Thursday, 19 March 2015

The march issue of the European Coatings JOURNAL focusses on the European Coatings SHOW 2015. Discover our EC SHOW package on page 13.

Brazil, 113th minute of the FIFA World Cup Final. Mario Götze scores the only goal of the match. Germany is World Champion – it was a fantastic feeling for me. Leaving the sports world and turning to the business world I was very astonished by learning that Germany is European Champion when it comes to patent registrations. Globally my native country ranks third behind the USA and Japan, but before China – with the smallest population of all these countries.
In the international comparison of companies registering patents, BASF ranks 6th – Nicolas Tissier contributed his part through the development of a polymer dispersion. He shows his in-depth understanding of the correlation between structure and properties. The result is a binder with improved colour retention (page 74).
Not only in patent registration in Europe Germany ranks first volume wise. The country accounts for one fifth of the entire European adhesives and sealants demand, as our market overview on page 10 shows.
Feel cordially invited by the World and European Champion when you visit the European Coatings Show in Nuremberg (page 13). The exhibition and congress will inspire you with lots of ideas regarding coatings, adhesives, sealants, printing inks and construction chemicals that may pave the way for your next patent registration.
