ECS Conference Proceedings 2019
The European Coatings Show Conference took place in March 2019 in Nuremberg, Germany and focused on on eco-friendliness and functionality. It once again brought together leading experts from research and development as well as renowned scientists from all over the world. With about 800 delegates from 54 countries taking part, its international attendance was even greater than on the previous occasion. This book gives a comprehensive summary of the presentations and workshops. Participants learned about the latest research results and trends in coating development in 144 presentations grouped into 24 sessions. The most popular presentation series included Water-borne coatings, Dispersing technology, Microbial protection and Science today - coatings tomorrow. Eco-friendliness and functionality are thus topics the industry continues to consider particularly important this year - which was also confirmed by the interactive survey of participants during the Conference. The use of titanium dioxide, something that has been the subject of intense discussion, was a new item on the agenda. The keynote speech was held by Prof. Markus Antonietti, Director at Max-Planck Institute for Colloids. He discussed a new procedure for obtaining monomers, polymers and solvents from biomass waste.
