The Little TEGO – now available as an App!

Just over a year ago, Evonik successfully launched its handy reference guide, "The Little TEGO", at the European Coatings Show. This useful vade mecum is now available free of charge as an App in the iTunes Store and the Android Market.

The mobile version contains an integrated collection of formulas which enable almost instantaneous calculation of important parameters and data such as pigment volume concentration, rotational speed conversion, amount of curing agent required and much more. Diagrams and tables on viscosity behavior and flow characteristics provide an insight into rheology. Detailed photos show common defects during the manufacture and application of coatings, while health and safety instructions round off the information.

The App is the ideal additional resource for all those training, studying and working in the field of coatings and printing inks.
