Regulatory requirements in the past few of decades have prompted the coatings industry to move its focus from conventional low-solid, solvent-based formulations to waterborne systems, high-solids coatings, energy-curable inks and other low-VOC technologies. This important environmentally-responsible shift coincided with exciting developments of new functionalities as a response to changing customer needs. Now faced with a growing demand for specialty and high value-added coatings,
