July/August issue: Bio-based coatings in the focus
The July/August issue of the European Coatings Journal features a full package on bio-based coatings: a market report, a product overview and expert interviews. The magazine is also available in European Coatings 360°.
On the one hand, there are some areas where coatings from biological feedstock are commonly used. But fossil-based systems are still the standard and changing that will take some time. With this issue of the European Coatings Journal, we will give you some valuable insights into aspects of this transition. We discuss the current situation of the bio-based coatings market and a possible setback due to the Corona pandemic in our market overview on page 14. You will also find a selection of market-ready polymers in our product overview on page 18.
A brand-new bio-based technology is discussed in our main technical article by Stefan Friebel from Fraunhofer WKI et al. on page 20. He shows how a by-product from palm oil refineries can be used to create bio-based, hydrophobic and weather resistance coatings. He will also present additional findings during our monthly livestream European Coatings // Live on 28 July. Registration is free of charge.
The complete issue is now also available at our data bank European Coatings 360°. European Coatings 360° also provides registered users with the opportunity to conduct your research activities online via our quick and effective full-text search and find exactly the information you need for your daily work in the field of coatings formulation.
Resins for Water-borne Coatings
Expand your knowledge and get fully acquainted with the various aspects of water-borne coatings - from production to properties to special features of their use! With the slow change from solvent-borne resins and coatings to water-borne coatings "Resins for waterborne coatings" is a must-read for any formulator wanting to expand their knowledge. The authors discuss important aspects of the "solvent-to-water-transition" of the past 40 to 50 years, take a deep dive into the key aspects and theories behind the production, properties and applications of these resins as well as providing an overview of how they are currently used in water-borne coatings.
