Making high-quality industrial coatings requires formulators to produce several performance properties that often have opposing requirements. In many cases, by optimizing one property, formulators encounter negative impact to another.
On Demand When it comes to color measurement, the objective is always to measure what we see. This 30 minute webinar is designed to provide a foundational understanding of how we perceive color, and how that understanding translates to quantitative color measurement using a spectrophotometer.
Foam happens— it’s a common and natural occurrence. However, eliminating it can feel anything but conventional. The right defoamer for a paint system requires the consideration of many factors such as, raw materials, manufacturing method, application type and cure conditions. This webinar will familiarize you with the different defoaming chemistries available and arm you with the tools needed to reliably select the right defoamer for any paint formulation.

This year’s event brought together more than 450 coatings professionals, 100 exhibitors and a comprehensive technical program covering the most pressing topics – your support helps make the event possible. And your feedback is important to us. Please take a moment to complete the brief event survey that was emailed to you last Thursday 9/12.
On DemandAttend this webinar for an understanding of how corrosion uniquely affects water-borne systems as well as test methods for rapid solution screening. New chemistries can balance hydrophilicity and improve corrosion resistance.
On Demand Formulators of decorative coatings place high value on maximizing visual hiding while minimizing formulation cost. A macro and micro approach is required to reduce surface defects (foam, roller picking, etc.) and improve film uniformity. The choice in rheology modifiers plays a great role in flow and leveling performance but traditional drawdown measurements do not capture all application methods and shear conditions (spray, brush & roll).
On Demand Water-borne coatings are now a major segment of the coatings industry. Water presents numerous challenges because of its high surface tension. Formulators are tasked with resolving these issues in order to achieve high quality coatings. By following 5 easy steps, formulators can optimize
any water-borne system.
The January issue features spectroscopic analysis of architectural coatings for improved weathering, a new generation of REACH-compliant ketamine epoxy curing agents, a look at what drives color forecasting, a study of icephobic coatings, and more.
