Cathay sees CHINACOAT as a unique opportunity to meet with customers and potential customers from emerging markets.
“CHINACOAT brings a lot more representation of the minor emerging markets – Africa, Southeast Asia and the Middle East – compared to other shows,” said Chuck Hoover, Cathay’s vice president for Coatings, Plastics & Specialty Markets. “They are still important growth areas and with the continued globalization of the industry, they are gaining in importance and CHINACOAT is the place to meet up.”
Among the products on display were Cathay’s pigments for wood stains. As the leader in transparent iron-oxide pigments for wood finishes, Cathay offers a full range of Umbers, Siennas, Ochres, Bone Black, Van Dyke Brown and Transparent Red and Yellow Iron Oxides. Hoover Color produces these pigments in various quality levels.
Also on display was CATHAYTHERM thermostable color pigments. These pigments can be used in a variety of applications, including plastic, powder coatings, high-bake temperature industrial finishes, coil coatings, military coatings and specialty coatings.
