Fully automated formulation testing

Additive Testing Facility

A new, fully automated high-throughput system for testing coating formulations enables Evonik to cut down significantly on time spent searching for the optimal formulation. In doing so, we accelerate not only our own pace of innovation, but also that of our customers.

Anti-Fouling Additives

Evonik already has effective solutions for anti-fouling coatings in its portfolio. We are now working on new formulations for the effective protection of ship hulls against bio-fouling, using fewer biocides or even dispensing with these altogether.
