December issue: Powder coatings in the focus
Whenever sustainable coating solutions are discussed – and there definitely is an ongoing demand for them – powder coating systems come into play. They are praised for their environmentally friendly benefits. First of all, they contain no solvents and thus emit only neglectable – if any – amounts of VOCs into the atmosphere.
So it comes as no surprise that the powder coatings market has recovered quite well from the negative impact of the pandemic, even though raw material prices and shortages are significant challenges for this segment. The outlook for powder coatings is promising, as you can read in our market report on page 12.
In our expert voices section, coatings professionals from Arkema and Karl Bubenhofer further expand on trends and challenges facing powder coatings (page 14). And Thomas Czeczatka and Judith Ewald, Byk, and Roland Albert, Eckart, introduce a novel matting additive that has been developed for use in powder coatings (page 18).
