At the ECS, Borchers showcased its Borchi Boost systems and Compatibilizers, developed to improve color acceptance in base coats. Another focus was Borchi Gen 1750, an advanced solution for “ultimate transparency on wood” with the added advantages of low paste viscosity, high pigment loading and shorter grind times than industry benchmarks, says the company. Borchers also featured a “jetness” system designed to promote durable, water-based, black automotive shades
A further highlight was Borchi Oxy-Coat cobalt replacement system. “Alkyd chemistry requires a metal dryer,” said Global Marketing Director Laura Bittle.” Oxy-Coat avoids the yellowing caused by cobalt systems as well as promoting rapid drying.
