Univar has launched a new European coatings laboratory by upgrading and extending the services, scope and reach of the existing UK facility in Middlesbrough. In the new laboratory, Univar’s specialist technicians will create product concept samples for customers throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa, with ingredients from its coatings product portfolio. Technicians will also evaluate raw materials, test specific coating-related problems and enable customers to see products in their finished state ahead of full production. These services are intended to cut testing and product development time for customers and enable them to develop the optimal product mix, saving time and money. The laboratory will provide services for many coatings market segments, including decorative, general industrial, wood and protective coatings as well as construction chemicals, liquid inks and overprint varnishes.
