14th CHINACOAT Conference
The 14th annual CHINACOAT Conference will be held November 29-30 at the China Import and Export Fair Complex. The theme of this year’s conference is “Exploring the Novel Cutting-edge Coatings Technology.” According to the conference organizers, there is increasing need for coatings formulations that respond to the environment in a predictable and useful manner. Bringing novel functionalities to polymer-coating system, smart materials will be of substantial business opportunity in this decade. The smart coatings market is estimated to grow from $610 million in 2015 to $5.8 billion in 2020.
This conference is designed to provide a showcase for the dissemination of new R&D in cutting-edge technologies. Topics included:
• Stimuli Responsive
• Heat Reflecting
• Smart Materials
The aim is to provide a forum to present and discuss ground-breaking work, stimulate new ideas, identify critical problems, provide promising solutions and assess possible roadmaps. It will also provide an opportunity for establishing new contacts in academic and industrial sectors in this very specialized field.
The conference’s keynote paper, “Science & Technologies of Smart Materials Including Stimuli Responsive Coatings,” will be presented by Dr. Jamil Baghdachi of Eastern Michigan University, USA.
With increasing demands for polymers and coatings that can sense their environment and be responsive, perform multifunctional tasks are in high demand globally. This paper will present the design, development and manufacturing of these emerging technologies and provide a thorough understanding of science and technology and principles on innovative and cost-effective formulations. Current global R&D activities and future trends will be discussed.
