We cover your needs at ECS 2019

Dear Reader,

This year’s European Coatings Show (ECS) is only a few days away and we are very much looking forward to meeting you in Nuremberg. Once again, ECS 2019 will be the place to be – where industry trends and hot topics are discussed to drive future coating technologies. It will also be an excellent opportunity to jointly discuss current and future market developments and the resulting challenges for us as an industry.

Whether we are talking about new industry trends, customer requirements, or environmental standards, it will be much easier to meet these challenges together. And ECS is the perfect opportunity to start. We hereby invite you to stop by our booth to discuss your specific challenges and talk about potential solutions, or to show you some of our latest products, solutions, and technologies.

“We cover your needs” – this year’s trade show motto – is not only a promise but a forecast regarding the solutions we will launch at ECS:

  • For furniture coatings, we will show you our new advanced raw materials to provide water-based white pigmented coatings with superior stain resistance.
  • For automotive and industrial coatings, we will be presenting new solutions for excellent corrosion protection.
  • For Formulation Additives, we have enhanced our portfolio with a novel concept of coating surface modification leading to improved durability and weathering resistance of the surface, as well as additional functionalities such as an easy-to-clean effect.

I hope you enjoy reading this edition of our Coatings newsletter and I look forward to meeting you in Nuremberg.


Best regards,

Ulf Neidlein

Keeping white bright

White coated furniture is increasingly popular, especially in living and kitchen areas. However, in everyday life small mishaps can happen quickly: a spilled coffee or a carelessly thrown key can leave irreversible traces on bright surfaces. With Joncryl® 9500 and 9502 and Laromer® UA 9135 Aqua, we provide you with the right solution.

Let metal love humidity

Acronal® PRO acrylic-modified emulsions are one step closer to the replacement of solvent-based systems. Our APEO and zinc-free acrylic dispersion Acronal® PRO 770 for improved metal protection helps you to save formulation cost.


Breaking new ground in coating surface modification

To cover the latest needs of the coatings industry, we have enhanced our Formulation Additives portfolio with a novel concept of coating surface modification. It is based on fluoro-modified block copolymers that cross-link with the binder matrix.


New formulations for environmentally improved 2K PU coatings

Can you enhance the performance as well as the sustainability of clear coats and pigmented top coats?

Let’s overcome today's limits in water-based spray applications!

Looking for an outstanding combination of effectiveness and compatibility for aqueous spray coatings applications?


Switching to water-based glass coatings

In recent years, water-based coatings have gained in popularity among professionals and consumers alike as they offer a high-quality, environmentally friendly alternative to solvent-based products. By replacing solvents with water as a liquefying agent, these eco-friendly coatings are low odor, easy cleaning and have low volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions.

Ensuring a good reactivity

Wanting a resource efficient and environmentally-friendly finish? Our latest highly reactive UV resins are specially designed to meet the major challenges of UV coatings for the Furniture and Flooring industry.
