Automotive Finishes: Focusing on the Key Aspects of Durability & Ecology

November 16-17, 2009 · Shanghai

China has more car brands than the U.S. and the desire to move from two wheels to four shows no sign of abating. Not so long ago there were almost no privately owned cars in China. By the end of 2005 there were some 25 million and the estimated number of vehicles by the end of 2008 is around 45 million. The Chinese car market overtook Japan in 2007 and is now the second largest in the world after the U.S. OEM coatings output, currently over 180,000 tons is set to reach 300,000 tons by 2010.

This conference will explore technologies for improving product quality and focus on long-term durability and ecology. It will highlight the problems and opportunities faced by the industry which is more dynamic than ever. Commercial success no longer hinges on large volume but on sustainable performance.

DSM NeoResins in the Netherlands is offering an award for the best technical paper on Waterborne Technology in this Conference.

Targeted audience: This conference will be of interest to executives and technical staff and should help all involved in product development, formulation, production or planning to move forward with the needs and demands of the industry and environment.
