Hubergroup bundles chemical expertise in a separate division
The printing ink manufacturer hubergroup repositions itself: Effective immediately, the production and marketing of raw materials for printing inks and coatings will be handled by the Chemicals Division.
The chemicals manufacturer is focusing on substances such as PU resins and UV oligomers, among others. With its extensive product portfolio, it is primarily aimed at the printing and packaging industry as well as the paint and coatings industry and chemical companies. To diversify and divide the business into two divisions - Print Solutions and Chemicals - is a strategic corporate decision. Hubergroup is thus pursuing the goal of making its technological expertise available to a wider range of customers.
"Pleased that we have taken this step"
Taner Bicer, President Chemicals Division Hubergroup, comments on the launch of the new division: "I am pleased that we have taken this step. As a printing ink manufacturer with over 255 years of history, we know what is important in the production of printing inks and the raw materials required for them. We not only want to incorporate this know-how into our own products but are also happy to pass it on."
The raw material manufacturer with a reactor capacity of over 250 kilotons per year produces mainly PU resins, UV oligomers, various polyesters, colour pigments and pigment preparations, as well as auxiliaries in its own plants in India. The portfolio is to be successively expanded in the coming years. Research & Development is managed from India and Europe.
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.
