Axalta: Ground breaking for new coatings facility
The 46,000-square-meter new plant will produce mobility coatings to support growing customer demand in China for light vehicles, commercial vehicles, and automotive plastic components.
Scheduled to open in 2023
As the largest and one of the fastest growing automotive markets in the world, China is regarded a key growth driver by Axalta and its Global Mobility business unit. The new plant is scheduled to open in 2023 and will mainly produce basecoats, primers, and clearcoats used in Axalta's processes such as high solids technology.
"Our new plant in Jilin is another building block supporting our ambitious growth strategy for our mobility business in China," said Nicolas Franc de Ferrière, Vice President, Mobility, Asia Pacific at Axalta.
Automotive Coatings Formulation
The automobile industry and the varnish manufacturers use a considerable expenditure to produce particularly appealing surfaces. The main focus in the painting industry is on the protection against corrosion, weathering, chemical and mechanical influences as well as obtainment of appealing surfaces. Several manufacturers specialize exclusively in automobile lacquers. This book deals with the composition and the production of the most difficult components as well as their physical and application technology characteristics. Application technology characteristics describe the application behaviour, the task of protection and the responding appearance. Ulrich Poth approaches the people who are entrusted with raw materials, systems and application procedures. Furthermore, Automotive Coatings Formulation is addressed to all chemists, physicists, engineers and other technically interested persons.
