Biesterfeld opens Lab and Innovation Centre in Hamburg
Biesterfeld is expanding its laboratory capacities in Hamburg with the opening of the Biesterfeld Lab and Innovation Centre.
Covering a total area of 800 m² the premises will be used with immediate effect for application-related laboratory activities. These include the development of innovative and market-oriented formulations, carrying out of product tests and customer-specific project work. The Biesterfeld Group also has regional laboratories in Norway, Turkey and Poland.
Modern presentation and meeting area
An existing laboratory in Hamburg has been integrated into the new application laboratory to make the new Biesterfeld Lab and Innovation Centre. The premises also contain a conference room and a modern presentation and meeting area, which can be used for product launches and technical training sessions. "In our application laboratories we develop tailored solutions to cater for the needs of our customers. An innovative formulation, for example, can be made market-ready through the addition of additives from our wide-ranging portfolio and thus support marketing work", reports Dr Lisa Nahrwold, Laboratory Manager at Biesterfeld Spezialchemie. "Alongside individual project work in accordance with customer requirements, the laboratory will be used to screen new raw materials from our partners and to conduct comparative studies.
Comprehensive regulatory consulting rounds off our range of services. "We can also draw on even more extensive resources by working together with external laboratories and institutes", adds Peter Wilkes, Managing Director of Biesterfeld Spezialchemie. "Our technology-based laboratory work constitutes a valuable service for our customers and provides customer-specific solutions. I am therefore delighted that we are also able to offer sufficient space in our Hamburg application laboratory for an interactive exchange of ideas with our suppliers and customers."
The market demands modern, high-performance, flawless paints that possess specified properties. Where deviations from set points occur, the cause must be investigated and the error must be remedied. What "standard methods" don't disclose is why a particular coating either meets or fails to meet a requirement. Thus the author presents modern analytical techniques and their applications in the coatings industry that answer further complex questions. The information in this book can be used for performing failure analysis, production control and quality control, and also meet the requirements of modern high-level quality management. An excellent combination of theory and practice for formulators, paint engineers and applied technologists seeking a sound basic introduction to instrumental paint analysis and concrete answers to everyday problems.
