Triple Show Issue

By Tim Wright

Published October 16, 2006
As this issue went to press, we at Coatings World, like many of you, are preparing for a busy fall. Beginning with NPCA's annual meeting at the end of the month, we will be heading to Nashville, then on to New Orleans for ICE, and finally to China for ChinaCoat, which will be held in Guangzhou.

Being our "Triple Show Issue," this is a big one and it's chock-full of coatings information. For this month's cover feature, consulting editor, Christine Canning Esposito spoke with some of the leading coatings manufacturers about trends in the exterior architectural coatings market. Click here to find out more about how issues such as new home construction and housing resale trends, reducing overall costs, and regulatory and performance demands are affecting manufacturers of exterior coatings and what they are doing to survive in today's market.

Another must-read is the article "Technology of the Automotive Refinish Future", in which BASF's Thomas J. Laginess illustrates how UV technology is taking coatings science to the next level. He examines the potential of UV coatings in each of the application steps for an automotive refinish repair.

In addition, this issue also includes reports on white pigment technology (click here), emerging technologies in pretreatment, corrosion protection systems, and color control in electrocoat applications. Also, formulators looking for the latest additives technology many wish to turn to our additive suppliers directory, which features a listing of top additive suppliers and their latest offerings.

For those of you attending ICE, be sure to check out our ICE exhibitors guide for a sneak peak at what a handful of select exhibitors have planned for the show.   

We're excited because, with so many industry events taking place, we're afforded the opportunity to see so many of you, our readers, all in one place. Please don't forget to visit. Be sure to track us down at NPCA's annual meeting and stop by our booths at ICE and ChinaCoat. We'd love to chat and hear your opinions about what's going on in the industry. Tell us what kind of job we're doing and what else we can do to continue being the best source for your paint and coatings information needs.

Coming next issue:

R&D Staff Salary Survey

The November issue of Coatings World will feature our fifth annual R&D Staff Survey. We polled readers across the industry for this one-of-a-kind exclusive report, which provides insight into compensation, job security and what's really going on in the minds of paint R&D personnel. Be sure not to miss it!
