Can & Coil Coatings
The property requirements for can and coil coatings are diverse. Chemical resistance and ductility are just two examples. In addition, weather resistance and color stability play a major role. Areas of application include coatings for metal packaging (beer and beverage cans, food cans, crowns, caps, and closures and tubes) as well as coatings applied to flat metal sheets or strips packaged in rolls or coils mainly used for cladding and roofs.Can and Coil Coatings
Heat-resistant coatings are commonly used in a variety of industrial applications. Their main task is to protect the substrate and/or to provide a decorative surface at high temperatures (> 180° Celsius for an extended period of time). Along with industrial applications such as mufflers and fire places, there is also a need for these coatings on cook- & bake-ware, which can be achieved by the use of silicone-containing resins. Heat Applications
Successful digital printing requires the ability to understand and tailor surface chemistry. Our digital experts develop additives that improve printing and adhesion on difficult-to-wet substrates, address long-term stability of pigment bases for a broad variety of color indices, and enable faster print speeds.Ink Jet
Leather coatings include finishes for artificial and genuine leather. They are used in automotive, garment, upholstery, and other application areas. Leather Coatings
Marine & Protective Coatings
Marine and protective coatings are applied to metal and concrete substrates to provide corrosion resistance and fire protection and to protect metal structures, particularly from salt water and other environmental impacts. In addition, these coatings must be durable. Marine vessels, off-shore supplies, yachts, and container ships are just a few applications areas. Marine and Protective Coatings
Metal & Glass Coatings
Coatings for metal and glass substrates like aluminum extrusions for construction; metal components for cars, trucks, and buses; metal furniture, racking, shelving, fixtures, rims, fittings and lighting; fabricated metal components; solar panels; wine bottles; perfume flasks; IR absorbing windows; and more.Metal and Glass Coatings
Paper coatings include coatings for thermal paper, paper packaging, inkjet receptive paper coatings, and other specialty coatings for paper. Paper coatings are typically applied via a curtain coating process, which offers specialty performance characteristics. Paper Coatings
Among the various challenges in paint formulation, issues related to colorant compatibility and color development are certainly some of the most common and difficult to solve.Pigment Concentrates
Plastic coatings cover finishes for components supplied by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) using polymerized materials for transportation (interior and exterior), consumer electronics, PVC flooring, and others as well as lifestyle products, cosmetic packaging, sports equipment, toys, and more.
Powder coatings are a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. The coating is typically applied electrostatically and cured under heat to allow it to flow and form a polymeric film. Powder coatings are mainly used to coat metals (such as household appliances), aluminum extrusions, drum hardware, and automobile and bicycle parts. Powder Coatings
