About the Short Course

Their chemistry is very versatile, as is their application and application potential: Polyurethane (PUR) coatings and their typical components — polyisocyanates and polyols — will be reviewed and compared in this tutorial. This includes a discussion of the various PUR coatings technologies in use and their advantages and limitations, such as 1K and 2K solventborne, as well as waterborne chemistries, radiation curing PUR coatings formulations, and their typical end-use applications. We will discuss also the latest innovations brought into the market with strong focus on sustainability.


Tobias Robert


2010 - PhD in organic chemistry at the University of Cologne in the working group of Prof. Hans-Günther Schmalz. Until 2012, a research stay at Queen's University in Kingston, Canada in the field of green switchable polymers. A further research stay at the TU Berlin with Prof. Martin Oestreich via a DAAD scholarship ended in 2013. Since 2013 he works as a scientist and project manager at the Fraunhofer WKI in Braunschweig. He is working on novel monomers from renewable resources, the synthesis of bio-based polymers and polymer resins, UV-curing polymers for printing inks and materials for additive manufacturing (3D printing). He is also interested in for the use of biobased waste products and their use as starting materials for biobased polymers.
