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.
Nothing can compare to joining industry professional's live in Chicago for in-depth education and unparalleled networking opportunities.
There is still time to sign up for the live event on September 10-11 here!
If you are unable to make it to CTT, this year select sessions will Broadcast LIVE! This allows you to watch or re-watch select sessions online.
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.
On DemandReducing the total number of coats required to paint a room translates into efficiency gains and reduced environmental impact. Improving the hiding power of a coating involves increasing the inherent hide (amount and dispersion of titanium dioxide) of the formulation and its applications properties. This “real world” or applied hide, is significantly influenced by the coatings’ rheology.
On Demand Pyrolysis-gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (Py-GC/MS) is a reliable analytical technique capable of characterizing a wide range of organic materials, yet even reasonably experienced users can be intimidated by the challenges of data interpretation.
Our September issue features articles and news about wood coatings, intumescent technology for sustainable buildings, tips for outsourcing coatings manufacturing, and an article on a liquid EPDM for waterborne coatings, which was the winner of the PCI Award for Technical Excellence at the Waterborne Symposium earlier this year.
