Valflon was the ideal coating choice for this specific project, as it is known to retain its color for many years, as well as resist harsh weather elements, airborne chemicals and acid. It combines high gloss and bold colors, keeping the university’s cohesive look both stable and stunning.
An innovative primer that stops corrosion for decades has caught the attention of multinational paint companies. Unlike traditional primers that sit on the surface of steel, this primer chemically bonds with steel to form an alloy layer that corrosion cannot penetrate.]
Using GPC it is possible to track changes in the MW of polymer- based inks induced by the printing process. This makes it possible to study the impact of polymer concentration and of printer geometries and operating modes on polymer degradation.
A multifaceted exploratory study was conducted on the Resistance to Iron Chloride Test specified in AMS-C-27725 to better understand the rationale of this corrosion acceleration test required for the integral fuel tank coating systems.
Automotive customization and energy-curable technology are an excellent complimentary pair. On top of its fast cure, energy curing offers excellent chemical resistance that can pass many of the automotive crème standards and can also be tailored to have a wide variety of properties.
When underperforming pump technologies were threatening to compromise the quality of its products, along with the reliability and environmental sensibility of its production operations, this company turned to AODD pumps, which have successfully met the needs of the highly critical paint-production operations.
Stepan Co., through a subsidiary in Mexico, has reached an agreement with BASF Mexicana S.A. DE C.V. to acquire its surfactant production facility in Ecatepec, Mexico, and a portion of its associated surfactants business.
NatureWorks, an advanced materials company offering a portfolio of renewably sourced polymers and chemicals, has formed a Performance Chemicals Division to supply lactides, polyols, binder resins and chemical intermediates to companies that manufacture coatings, adhesives, sealants, elastomers, toners and fine chemicals.
The Dow Chemical Co., Midland, Michigan, and Koehler Paper Group, Oberkirch, Germany, have been named winners of a 2017 U.S. EPA Presidential Green Chemistry Award for the development of ROPAQUE™ NT-2900 Opaque Polymer for BLUE 4EST™ Thermal Paper.
The end-use markets for UV/EB curing have grown dramatically in the two years since RadTech Europe held its last conference. Taking place at the Clarion Hotel in Prague on Oct. 17-19, the RTE Conference and Exhibition 2017 will be a large and lively event.
Tetrashield™ protective resin systems show significant improvements in weathering and a better balance of hardness and flexibility when compared to traditional resins used in industrial and automotive coatings.
Ross Model VMC-750 is equipped with a dual-post lift, interchangeable 750-gallon mix vessels, and a triple-agitator system consisting of a low-speed anchor, high-speed disperser and high-shear rotor/stator assembly.
