Advancing the Paint and Coating Industry to Greater Sustainability with Continua™ 8510P SCM [sponsored]

The journey to maximizing sustainability can begin with a few small steps that make a big impact. One such step is to replace conventional formulation components with more sustainable additives. Learn more about how Continua™ 8510P SCM, a Sustainable Carbonaceous Material (SCM) derived from the pyrolysis of End-of-Life-Tires, provides a way to make black powder coatings even more sustainable.

Bio-based binders for high-solids two-component coatings [sponsored]

Sustainability is changing the requirements for high-quality industrial coating systems. Find out how polyester polyols and especially their fatty acid-modified types – the alkyd resins – are offering a wide range of possibilities to make products more sustainable.

Sustainable coating technology [sponsored]

Discover how technology from Dow is supporting the transition to a circular economy, allowing for more sustainable coatings. For example, revolutionary new PRIMAL™ Biobased Binders use carbon from plants to replace up to 35% of petroleum sourced material, reducing the environmental footprint of coatings while offering equivalent or better performance in interior paints compared to conventional waterbased binders.

How to Replace MEKO with a Safe, Effective Alternative [sponsored]

Learn how 2-pentanone oxime (2-PO) provides comparable, if not better, anti-skinning performance than methyl ethyl ketoxime (MEKO) in air-drying alkyd paints and coatings. Test results show that 2-PO (EZ-Blox®) prevails on several fronts, including overall drying time, odor, color and dosage flexibility, with a much more favorable toxicological profile.
