Coatings for plastic substrates: Technology trends

According to Prof. Guido Wilke, University of applied sciences, Esslingen, Germany waterborne and UV technology are important future technology trends for coatings for plastics. Waterborne systems still do not reach the performance of solventborne coatings. Nevertheless Wilke is convinced that these systems will penetrate the market.
