European Coatings Show: Academia meets business
The University of Paderborn will be presenting the following topics: microphase-separating block copolymers with anti-fouling properties, the development of coatings with self-repair properties, hierarchically structured coatings, structured coatings with barrier effect, and bio-based and bio-inspired coatings. Esslingen University of Applied Sciences is well known in the sector. It will be presenting its Bachelor‘s course in chemical engineering/paints and coatings at the ECS. Interested parties will be able to find out more about the course and receive detailed information at first-hand.
The Institut für Holztechnologie Dresden will also have a stand and will be presenting on a number of topics, including: development of an NIR-based method for rapidly predicting the weatherability of wood coatings in outdoor areas (SurveNIR Coating), development of a method for the early detection of weather-induced failure of plastic coatings, and natural binders.
The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research (ISC), too, will be in attendance again at ECS 2019. Its topics will include multifunctional, bio-based and biodegradable multifunctional coatings, additives, design-for-dispersion and pilot syntheses of nanoparticles.
