“Formulators can move away from trial-and-error”

Formulating a good coatings system is time consuming and requires many repetitive tasks. Thanks to predictive sciences a lot of this work can be dropped. In our interview Sander van Loon, CEO of VLCI, explains how this works and what role high-throughput technology plays for this.

Colouring by polymer stress instead of pigments

Material stress is normally not good for polymer films in paints and varnishes, after all it can lead to damage and failure of the protective function. A Nature article now shows how it can also be used for colouring.
