    The Fundamentals of Matting Agents in Coatings

    The Fundamentals of Matting Agents in Coatings

    09.27.22

    NOW AVAILABLE ON-DEMAND

    Matting agents are designed to roughen the surface of coatings in a precise and predictable manner to reduce gloss at designated angles of incidence to precise requirements. Gloss is a critical parameter for consistent appearance and often defines our aesthetic perceptions including color. How rough or smooth a coated surface feels to the touch creates the haptic impression.

    This webinar will address the basic elements of matting agents, stressing the importance of measuring all angles available of incidence of 20, 60 and 85, as well as proper dispersion. Tips for assessing these measurements will also be included. Select new technology, engineered to have high matting efficiency, high transparency, and high surface haptics for all kinds of coatings, will be reviewed.

    FEVE Technology: LUMIFLON® Resins for Coatings

    FEVE Technology: LUMIFLON® Resins for Coatings

    07.27.22

    NOW AVAILABLE ON-DEMAND

    Protective coatings fight deterioration caused by environmental elements, while also reducing maintenance costs and increasing the life of the finish. The design professional will explore different coatings, specifically fluoropolymers, and their benefits. Through this one hour course, we will also learn how next-generation fluoropolymer coating technology exhibits excellent weatherability and environmental advantages. This course will conclude with a brief Q&A.

    1. Define FEVE and discuss FEVE coating technology, grades and unique weatherability properties.
    2. Discuss real-time and accelerated testing of FEVE coatings that demonstrate their proven performance in terms of corrosion resistance, and color/gloss retention over long periods of time.
    3. We will also assess the life-cycle cost advantage and sustainability benefits of FEVE topcoats despite their higher initial cost compared to other topcoat formulations.
    4. Discuss guidelines for proper specification and explore several real-world applications.

    NOW AVAILABLE ON-DEMAND


    Recent supply chain issues have necessitated raw materials supplier changes, additional layers of materials testing and formulation pivots in order to keep up CASE materials and CASE chemicals production levels. In this webinar, we will discuss an in-depth analysis of raw materials such as acrylates by liquid chromatography (LC) and look forward to the shift to alkyd resins. We will also touch on the use of Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) for analyzing other common raw materials and final products.

    We will also review QA/QC analysis with IR for adhesives like tapes, glues and other adhesives, to ensure polymerization and curing characteristics for final product profiles. Additionally, we will touch on VOC analysis in the evaluation of resin quality with GC.

    We will finish the webinar with a live Q&A session with the speakers. We sincerely hope this collection of topics is helpful in your pursuit of product quality.

    How a Collaborative R&D Platform can replace spreadsheets and traditional LIMS solutions

    How a Collaborative R&D Platform can replace spreadsheets and traditional LIMS solutions

    05.17.22

    NOW AVAILABLE ON-DEMAND

    While many organizations want to centralize their data and make better use of modern techniques like artificial intelligence & machine learning, it is still a struggle to move scientists off their formulating tool of choice - the spreadsheet. While spreadsheets are an amazing invention and easy to use, they are often unique for each individual or team within a company, prevent true collaboration, and lead to machine learning problems due to data quality & quantity concerns. Watch this webinar to learn:

    • Where LIMS and ELN systems can be used and where they fall short
    • How modern systems like the Uncountable platform can unify a team’s workstream, leading to better collaboration, and quicker tme to deliver value for customers
    • How the Uncountable platform is used by global organizations today.
