Our September issue features several articles on sustainable technology for the coatings industry, as well as Part 3 of our introduction to additives, and a look at which paint manufacturers scored on top in the The J.D. Power 2021 Paint Satisfaction StudySM
This article discusses a unique, biobased solution designed for thermoplastic road marking formulations. The new technology improves two critical performance characteristics in a rosin ester - initial light color and oxidative stability.
Fibrillated cellulose is a 100%-natural, biodegradable and sustainable material. It performs as a multi-functional stabilizer with low impact on viscosity in a wide range of coatings applications, as well as supporting a more sustainable lifecycle.
Formulations are sometimes adjusted by fine tuning various additives, including antioxidants and light stabilizers, which provide different thermal and light stabilization properties. It is very important to find the best combination of additives to achieve the necessary performance, especially if the final substrate or area to be powder coated requires specific durability or heat resistance.
Hundreds of millions of gallons of solvent are used each year, with the vast majority ultimately converted into greenhouse gases. This is a problem, but one with clear solutions. By implementing reuse strategies, traditional recycling, or most effectively, modern solvent recycling, coatings manufacturers can drastically improve the sustainability of their operations.
While balancing cost and sustainability might sound challenging, digital color management makes it possible for paint and coatings professionals to help the environment while still favoring the bottom line. This is a key consideration for many in the industry who, now more than ever, are searching for innovative ways to streamline workflows and reduce waste while saving on costs.
Nouryon has been awarded a Gold rating by EcoVadis for its sustainability achievements, which places Nouryon in the top 3% of more than 75,000 companies assessed by the global sustainability ratings provider.
As of June 30, 2021, PaintCare — the nonprofit organization set up by paint manufacturers to operate paint recycling programs — has collected more than 50 million gallons of paint from households and businesses.
A new humectant for binder-free pigment pastes, TEGO® Humectant 7005 is effective against drying of pigment concentrates, while its influence on water resistance and other paint properties remains low.
This brochure features a complete line of products, including UniFlow SL laboratory fumes that are constructed totally, interior and exterior, of chemical-resistant, flame-retardant, lightweight composite resin.
ROSS Inline SLIM High-Shear Mixers solve three processing steps with one machine. The close tolerance of the rotor and stator exposes 100% of liquid product to high shear and exerts a secondary pumping effect.
