PRA, NanoKTN and BCF PresentNanotechnology & the Coatings Industry 2013

Published September 25, 2013
Nanotechnology based coating products have shown remarkable growth in recent years with BCC Research reporting in January 2010 that the nanotechnology based coatings market was nearly $2.9B in 2009 and that it was projected to grow to $17.9B in 2015, a compound annual growth rate of 39.5%.

This conference, now in its fourth year, will provide insights into new nanomaterial developments and novel process routes, both to the manufacture of nanomaterials and the conversion of these nanomaterials into commercial formulations. It will also have speakers describing new and exciting products across a wide range of coatings applications. In addition, there will be talks on characterisation techniques and the current status on regulatory issues.
