Visitors to Booth 7-123 can look forward to new, cutting-edge developments that fill specific gaps in processing performance, functionality and sustainability across the broad spectrum of coatings applications and end-markets. Highlights include:
launch of an innovative sugar-based VOC-free1 neutralizing agent opening up processing and performance multifunctionality to eco-label certified paints
a ground-breaking new fire protection component that enables intumescent coatings to have a low and stable viscosity even after long storage – giving customers longer shelf life of their intumescent coating and more flexibility on the construction site
a synergistic combination of high performance UV absorber and HALS, xylene-free, that meets the most demanding requirements for both solvent-based and water-based coatings
two new ranges of solvent-based pigment preparations: halogen-free pigments dispersed to “super-transparency” for use in the easy formulation of metallic effect shades or transparent coatings, plus a new range for easy coloration of UV-curing paint for industrial and wood coatings.
European Coatings Show 2017 will be held at the Nuremberg Exhibition Center, April 4-6, 2017. For more information in the run-up to ECS 2017, visit http://www.clariant.com/ecs.
1 VOC-free means the VOC content is below the measurable threshold of 0.1% according to ISO 11890-2.
