June issue: Additives in the focus

The June issue of the European Coatings Journal is out. It features a full package on additives: a market report, a product overview and expert interviews. The magazine is also available in European Coatings 360°.

Marine coatings are the focus topic of the September issue of the European Coatings Journal.

Additives are the essential helpers in every formulation. Their contribution – when combined with all the other raw materials of course – means that modern coating systems can be created with an extensive range of properties. However, the current challenges in doing so are seemingly infinite. From optimising specific functionalities, to minimising undesirable side effects to preservation – whether in the can or in the applied film. Our report on page 12 discusses the latter option, specifically with regard to the market situation for biocides, which is becoming increasingly challenging as a result of ever more stringent legislation.

The technical paper by Sjören Schweizerhof and his colleagues focuses on the development of paints that manage entirely without biocides (page 20). Yet they still provide lasting stability, superior application properties, and good workability.
