Coatings based on polymer nanocomposites, organic-inorganic hybrid materials, alloys, and 2-D nanomaterials are some of the most important developments in creating smart coatings that are capable of self-healing, superhydrophobicity, stimuli-responsiveness, sensory functions, and high performance under extreme conditions.
The U.S. Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration, is organizing the first trade mission for U.S. Paint and Coatings Materials Suppliers in conjunction with the ANAFAPYT (Mexican National Association of Manufacturers of Paints and Inks) trade show
Our March issue features a new eco-friendly carbon black, a fast-dry DTM alkyd emulsion with excellent corrosion resistance, and information on evaluating the flow behavior of coatings. March is also our European Coatings Show issue, which pre-show coverage and Exhibits-in-Print.
