São Paulo, Brazil - With 25 percent more lectures, experts from all over the world will show the latest developments and research efforts at the International Coatings Congress, part of ABRAFATI 2015. The event will take place October 13-15 at the Transamerica Expo Center in São Paulo, Brazil.

The program for the International Coatings Congress, part of ABRAFATI 2015, is defined and can already be viewed on the event’s website. For this edition, a large number of papers have been received that add important knowledge and open new horizons for technological evolution. To ensure that all relevant content will be presented, the Science Committee for the event has recommended an increase in number of lectures; there will be 90 of them in the course of the three-day event, instead of 72, which was the previous standard. Lectures will be assigned one of six themes: Resin and Emulsion, Pigment, Additive, Paints, Coatings, and Environment.

The general theme of the conference is sustainability, which is currently at the core of the strategies of companies in the industry and is reflected in the work done in industry laboratories and other facilities. Leading global experts will be showing the most innovative and sustainable technologies in terms of raw materials, formulation, application of technologies, performance enhancement, functionalities and more.

“We will make a rather valuable contribution to scientific and technological development in the coatings supply chain. The extremely high-end program and the presence of the best professionals at both the Congress and the Exhibition make for ideal conditions to spread knowledge and to share and discuss innovative solutions,” says ABRAFATI’s Executive President Dilson Ferreira.
