Azelis shared the results of the company’s third principal satisfaction survey. 
 
This survey tracks and measures how the company performs for its key partners.
 
Highlights & rationale:
Continually striving to improve its service, Azelis conducts a bi-annual principal satisfaction survey. The survey is sent to 100 principals and the last one, undertaken in late 2018, saw the high response rate of 70 percent. Having analyzed all the results, Azelis now shares some of the learnings from the last survey.
 
From a satisfaction score of 3.91 in 2016, Azelis’ overall score improved to 4.06 (out of 5) in 2018. Principal management, long-term partnership, friendliness of the staff, strategic alignment, transparency and professionalism were all highly scored, both in 2016 and 2018.
 
Compared to the 2016 principal satisfaction survey, Azelis has improved most in sales forecasting, in-depth knowledge of principal products, limited staff turnover and raising and handling customer complaints in the appropriate way.
 
“Partnerships are at the heart of our business and I am grateful that our partners took the time and effort to share their perception about our work with us," said Dr. Hans Joachim Müller, Azelis group CEO. "Without their feedback, we would not be in the position to fine-tune our actions and constantly improve our service. We are proud of our continued enhanced performance but will not stop there - continuously driving improvement is a core value of Azelis. Eventually, I would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody in Azelis whose hard work and dedication were instrumental in this excellent performance.”

Chemovator GmbH, the internal incubator of BASF, turns unconventional ideas which carry usually high risks and lie outside the core business of BASF into investable business models. 
 
The company was founded in May 2018. 
 
“A lot has happened,” said Dr. Markus Bold, head of Chemovator GmbH. 
 
Seven teams already moved into Chemovator. There is space for up to 12 teams in total. 
 
"In the last year, we saw more than 50 idea pitches from BASF employees. I am thrilled about the variety of ideas and I have a lot of respect for each and every BASF employee who takes the courage to present a business idea on our stage," Bold said.
 
Chemovator puts great emphasis on the external exchange of competencies and knowledge with experience founders and business angels. In addition, the teams can focus 100 percent on their business idea. This enables Chemovator to combine the best of both worlds: corporates and startups.
 
The next step is to bring the first wave of portfolio ventures to fruition. Furthermore, Chemovator will contribute to turn the Rhine-Neckar region to the preferred hub for startups around chemistry. 
 
“Our goal is to become the go-to-place for incubating ideas for the chemical industry,” Bold said. “To do so, we want to strongly collaborate and foster an extensive exchange with local innovation hubs and cooperators.”

BASF’s plastic additives package is helping to protect the roof at Incheon Airport’s Terminal 2, with thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) sheets produced by Wonpoong Corporation in South Korea under the brand name SuperGuard. TPO sheets are widely used as roofing membranes in commercial buildings and other structures as a more environmentally friendly alternative for high-performance waterproofing.
 
The additives package, comprising a light stabilizer from the Tinuvin range and an antioxidant from the Irgastab range, helps protect the TPO membranes, hence the roofs, from wear and tear resulting from extreme heat and light exposure.
 
“TPO roofing membranes produced with BASF’s polymer formulation and stabilization can perform in some of the most extreme climate conditions and meet current roofing and waterproofing standards,” said Hermann Althoff, SVP of BASF’s Performance Chemicals unit in Asia Pacific. “Our stabilizers reduce production costs and make products last longer, and thereby help to conserve precious raw material.”
 
The light stabilizer is based on BASF’s proprietary NOR-HALS (hindered amine light stabilizer) technology. Due to the inherent advantages of NOR-HALS technology, the stabilizers have a lower interaction with system components and acidic environmental contaminants than traditional HALS products, thereby helping to retain the mechanical properties of TPO membranes to meet the demands of building owners.
 
Heat and UV exposure are two of the most detrimental factors affecting the useful life of roofing membranes today. Manufacturers need to fulfill the new ASTM D6878 standard for TPO roofing formulations. These standards identify the minimum levels of exposure to heat and UV levels that a TPO membrane must be able to withstand. By using BASF’s plastic additives technology, Wonpoong succeeded in winning the contract over other companies by receiving a better evaluation for weatherproofing.
 
“We tried solutions from other suppliers but got the best results with BASF’s technology,” said John Yu, director of R&D at Wonpoong Corporation. “Now we are able to ensure the polymer’s UV resistance and provide our customers with more durable products.”
 
Energy issues are growing in importance in the selection of all building materials, and roofing is no exception. Factoring in overall energy performance as part of a system’s life-cycle cost, many customers and contractors are insisting on TPO roofing membranes as they are heat-reflective. Energy efficient roofing systems can reduce a building’s internal cooling costs dramatically.

China leads the way, but North American and Western Europe also present opportunities. [slug] => the-industrial-coatings-market--673821 [body] => According to a recent report from Markets and Markets, the global industrial coatings market is expected to grow from $98.30 billion in 2017 to $130.97 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 5.91 percent from 2017 to 2022. For the purposes of this report industrial coatings are defined as thin films applied on materials to add or enhance their specific properties such as corrosion resistance, wear resistance and conductivity.

Industrial coatings are used in a wide variety of applications and encompass many end-use industries such as industrial wood, protective, general industrial, rail, coil coatings OEM and consumer goods & appliances.

According to research from Markets and Markets, the industrial coatings market in APAC  (Asia Pacific) is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. APAC is rapidly expanding the market, owing to the growing economy and increasing middle-class population. The study authors noted that the increasing number of industrial activities due to growing urbanization, mainly in China and India, are expected to drive the market during the forecast period.  There is an increased demand from the automotive industry in APAC, which is mainly backed by the expansion of the region’s industrial activities. This increased demand, in turn, drives the industrial coatings market in APAC.

APAC is the fastest-growing market with most of the large manufacturers establishing their facilities in this region. Presence of some of the fastest-growing economies, such as China, India and South Korea, and rising demand from the automotive industry play a crucial role in driving the industrial coatings market in the APAC region.

The industrial coating market recorded growth for 2018, despite a challenging year.

“Despite the rising costs of raw materials and the impact of increasingly volatile geopolitical influences on key commodity markets, most sectors where Hempel Industrial focuses on have shown revenue growth in the last year,” said Michael Bredfeldt, head of Industrial Group Product Management, Product and Portfolio, Hempel. “Hempel Industrial is involved in the heavy-duty equipment, heavy-duty truck, consumer products and general finishes areas and these are driven by a number of factors including overall Gross Domestic Product (GDP), residential and commercial construction, infrastructure projects, and energy costs. Hempel Industrial will continue to focus on these sectors as we continue to see growth and market share gain.”

“The market for industrial coatings has been steady and growing in line with industrial production at a 3-3.5 percent rate over the past 12 months,” said Dave Heflin, VP, Global Industrial Liquid Coatings, Axalta Coating Systems. “A strong economy and consumer confidence have driven growth, but other factors like infrastructure spending, a strong agricultural season, and growth in capital spending have been important contributors to healthy growth as well.”

“We really see growth across all of our Industrial businesses, led by the continued mid-single-digit growth in new commercial architecture as well as maintenance of existing facilities, then followed closely by agricultural, construction and earthmoving equipment with similar growth rates,” Heflin added. “We have also seen strong growth in pipeline spending at high single-digit rates, as oil and gas exploration and transmission spending has come back online.” 

Growth Regions

In line with the paint and coatings industry as a whole, Asia Pacific region represents the most opportunity for growth, but even the mature markets in North America and Western Europe have some bright spots.

Hempel has been focusing its industrial coatings activity in the North American and Western European markets.

“We have the added benefit that we are supported by our Centres of Excellence in Dallas, Texas and Kampen, Netherlands,” said Bredfeldt. “Both sites offer holistic technical services, from product development to field technical expertise. Furthermore, these Central Distribution and R&D Centres (Centres of Excellence) allow us to offer further efficiencies to our customers as orders can be fulfilled and shipped in record time and at a reduced cost. We anticipate continuing to see gains in these regions.”

For Axalta Coating Systems, China is, by far, the fastest growing region in the world for industrial coatings. “But we have also seen very healthy growth rates in our mature markets in Europe and the U.S.,” noted Heflin. “In the past year, Axalta launched more than 80 new products across our Industrial businesses, and, while the thirst for new products is universal, the demand from China has been especially strong.”

Meeting Customer Demands

Users of industrial coatings are interested in coatings manufacturers increasing the lifecycle of the products that they develop to extend the service life of their assets.

“Coatings can have a positive impact by improving performance in areas such as corrosion resistance and UV durability,” said Bredfeldt. “In addition, they are continually seeking out solutions that will improve their processes by minimizing waste, conserving energy and water while boosting production efficiencies and also reducing the impact to the environment and exposure of workers to hazardous chemicals.”

According to Heflin, the biggest thing customers are looking for is a partner to their business, not just a paint supplier.  “In times of growth, coupled with new opportunities for most of our customers, they are faced with new challenges like increased production rates, faster turnaround times, more customization in color and appearance provided by their customers – all great challenges to have, but in many cases, the paint shop can be the lifeblood of growth (or the limiting factor).  Customers who are winning have migrated to those paint suppliers who have strong technical service to help them successfully absorb significant growth and position their businesses to gain share.”

Environmental Compliance

Sustainability is a key driver for the industrial coatings market in terms of meeting stricter and constantly evolving environmental regulations, as well as increasing public awareness.

“There are a notable trend towards higher solids/lower volatile organic compounds (VOC) solvent-based coatings and an increase in demand for water-based (waterborne) coatings in certain sectors,” said Bredfeldt. “This trend will continue across all sectors as the demand increases and the coatings continue to be more robust for application. The focus on developing ever-more sustainable industrial coatings solutions also contributes to Hempel’s overarching sustainability agenda. This seeks to protect and prolong the lifecycle of assets and thereby leads to less heavy-duty equipment being produced. This minimizes waste which helps owners minimize their environmental footprint.”

Axalta’s Helfin also sees the drive for more environmentally-friendly coatings, particularly in China and Europe. 

“This shift isn’t just waterborne coatings, but also higher solids solvent-borne products.  As an example, we launched a zero VOC primer in Europe this past fall, and we can’t keep up with demand from heavy-duty equipment suppliers as well as metal component manufacturers.”

Hempel Industrial will continue to develop sustainable and scalable solutions that have the potential to expand our geographic footprint and support our global customers. Investments at our two Centers of Excellence in Dallas, TX  and Kampen, Netherlands support our drive to improve our customers’ experience.

In overall Hempel terms, 2019 will be a year of progress. The global coatings market is expected to pick up, and Hempel anticipates delivering underlying organic growth in line with or slightly better than the market. As a leading company within the global coatings industry, Hempel expects to bring more new companies into the Hempel family, as it continues its journey towards becoming a €3 billion revenue company.

New Products

Hempel is launching a new epoxy primer for heavy-duty equipment and trucks – Hempaprime Shield 700 HS.

Azelis shared the results of the company’s third principal satisfaction survey. 
 
This survey tracks and measures how the company performs for its key partners.
 
Highlights & rationale:
Continually striving to improve its service, Azelis conducts a bi-annual principal satisfaction survey. The survey is sent to 100 principals and the last one, undertaken in late 2018, saw the high response rate of 70 percent. Having analyzed all the results, Azelis now shares some of the learnings from the last survey.
 
From a satisfaction score of 3.91 in 2016, Azelis’ overall score improved to 4.06 (out of 5) in 2018. Principal management, long-term partnership, friendliness of the staff, strategic alignment, transparency and professionalism were all highly scored, both in 2016 and 2018.
 
Compared to the 2016 principal satisfaction survey, Azelis has improved most in sales forecasting, in-depth knowledge of principal products, limited staff turnover and raising and handling customer complaints in the appropriate way.
 
“Partnerships are at the heart of our business and I am grateful that our partners took the time and effort to share their perception about our work with us," said Dr. Hans Joachim Müller, Azelis group CEO. "Without their feedback, we would not be in the position to fine-tune our actions and constantly improve our service. We are proud of our continued enhanced performance but will not stop there - continuously driving improvement is a core value of Azelis. Eventually, I would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody in Azelis whose hard work and dedication were instrumental in this excellent performance.”

BASF’s plastic additives package is helping to protect the roof at Incheon Airport’s Terminal 2, with thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) sheets produced by Wonpoong Corporation in South Korea under the brand name SuperGuard. TPO sheets are widely used as roofing membranes in commercial buildings and other structures as a more environmentally friendly alternative for high-performance waterproofing.
 
The additives package, comprising a light stabilizer from the Tinuvin range and an antioxidant from the Irgastab range, helps protect the TPO membranes, hence the roofs, from wear and tear resulting from extreme heat and light exposure.
 
“TPO roofing membranes produced with BASF’s polymer formulation and stabilization can perform in some of the most extreme climate conditions and meet current roofing and waterproofing standards,” said Hermann Althoff, SVP of BASF’s Performance Chemicals unit in Asia Pacific. “Our stabilizers reduce production costs and make products last longer, and thereby help to conserve precious raw material.”
 
The light stabilizer is based on BASF’s proprietary NOR-HALS (hindered amine light stabilizer) technology. Due to the inherent advantages of NOR-HALS technology, the stabilizers have a lower interaction with system components and acidic environmental contaminants than traditional HALS products, thereby helping to retain the mechanical properties of TPO membranes to meet the demands of building owners.
 
Heat and UV exposure are two of the most detrimental factors affecting the useful life of roofing membranes today. Manufacturers need to fulfill the new ASTM D6878 standard for TPO roofing formulations. These standards identify the minimum levels of exposure to heat and UV levels that a TPO membrane must be able to withstand. By using BASF’s plastic additives technology, Wonpoong succeeded in winning the contract over other companies by receiving a better evaluation for weatherproofing.
 
“We tried solutions from other suppliers but got the best results with BASF’s technology,” said John Yu, director of R&D at Wonpoong Corporation. “Now we are able to ensure the polymer’s UV resistance and provide our customers with more durable products.”
 
Energy issues are growing in importance in the selection of all building materials, and roofing is no exception. Factoring in overall energy performance as part of a system’s life-cycle cost, many customers and contractors are insisting on TPO roofing membranes as they are heat-reflective. Energy efficient roofing systems can reduce a building’s internal cooling costs dramatically.

China leads the way, but North American and Western Europe also present opportunities. [slug] => the-industrial-coatings-market--673821 [body] => According to a recent report from Markets and Markets, the global industrial coatings market is expected to grow from $98.30 billion in 2017 to $130.97 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 5.91 percent from 2017 to 2022. For the purposes of this report industrial coatings are defined as thin films applied on materials to add or enhance their specific properties such as corrosion resistance, wear resistance and conductivity.

Industrial coatings are used in a wide variety of applications and encompass many end-use industries such as industrial wood, protective, general industrial, rail, coil coatings OEM and consumer goods & appliances.

According to research from Markets and Markets, the industrial coatings market in APAC  (Asia Pacific) is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. APAC is rapidly expanding the market, owing to the growing economy and increasing middle-class population. The study authors noted that the increasing number of industrial activities due to growing urbanization, mainly in China and India, are expected to drive the market during the forecast period.  There is an increased demand from the automotive industry in APAC, which is mainly backed by the expansion of the region’s industrial activities. This increased demand, in turn, drives the industrial coatings market in APAC.

APAC is the fastest-growing market with most of the large manufacturers establishing their facilities in this region. Presence of some of the fastest-growing economies, such as China, India and South Korea, and rising demand from the automotive industry play a crucial role in driving the industrial coatings market in the APAC region.

The industrial coating market recorded growth for 2018, despite a challenging year.

“Despite the rising costs of raw materials and the impact of increasingly volatile geopolitical influences on key commodity markets, most sectors where Hempel Industrial focuses on have shown revenue growth in the last year,” said Michael Bredfeldt, head of Industrial Group Product Management, Product and Portfolio, Hempel. “Hempel Industrial is involved in the heavy-duty equipment, heavy-duty truck, consumer products and general finishes areas and these are driven by a number of factors including overall Gross Domestic Product (GDP), residential and commercial construction, infrastructure projects, and energy costs. Hempel Industrial will continue to focus on these sectors as we continue to see growth and market share gain.”

“The market for industrial coatings has been steady and growing in line with industrial production at a 3-3.5 percent rate over the past 12 months,” said Dave Heflin, VP, Global Industrial Liquid Coatings, Axalta Coating Systems. “A strong economy and consumer confidence have driven growth, but other factors like infrastructure spending, a strong agricultural season, and growth in capital spending have been important contributors to healthy growth as well.”

“We really see growth across all of our Industrial businesses, led by the continued mid-single-digit growth in new commercial architecture as well as maintenance of existing facilities, then followed closely by agricultural, construction and earthmoving equipment with similar growth rates,” Heflin added. “We have also seen strong growth in pipeline spending at high single-digit rates, as oil and gas exploration and transmission spending has come back online.” 

Growth Regions

In line with the paint and coatings industry as a whole, Asia Pacific region represents the most opportunity for growth, but even the mature markets in North America and Western Europe have some bright spots.

Hempel has been focusing its industrial coatings activity in the North American and Western European markets.

“We have the added benefit that we are supported by our Centres of Excellence in Dallas, Texas and Kampen, Netherlands,” said Bredfeldt. “Both sites offer holistic technical services, from product development to field technical expertise. Furthermore, these Central Distribution and R&D Centres (Centres of Excellence) allow us to offer further efficiencies to our customers as orders can be fulfilled and shipped in record time and at a reduced cost. We anticipate continuing to see gains in these regions.”

For Axalta Coating Systems, China is, by far, the fastest growing region in the world for industrial coatings. “But we have also seen very healthy growth rates in our mature markets in Europe and the U.S.,” noted Heflin. “In the past year, Axalta launched more than 80 new products across our Industrial businesses, and, while the thirst for new products is universal, the demand from China has been especially strong.”

Meeting Customer Demands

Users of industrial coatings are interested in coatings manufacturers increasing the lifecycle of the products that they develop to extend the service life of their assets.

“Coatings can have a positive impact by improving performance in areas such as corrosion resistance and UV durability,” said Bredfeldt. “In addition, they are continually seeking out solutions that will improve their processes by minimizing waste, conserving energy and water while boosting production efficiencies and also reducing the impact to the environment and exposure of workers to hazardous chemicals.”

According to Heflin, the biggest thing customers are looking for is a partner to their business, not just a paint supplier.  “In times of growth, coupled with new opportunities for most of our customers, they are faced with new challenges like increased production rates, faster turnaround times, more customization in color and appearance provided by their customers – all great challenges to have, but in many cases, the paint shop can be the lifeblood of growth (or the limiting factor).  Customers who are winning have migrated to those paint suppliers who have strong technical service to help them successfully absorb significant growth and position their businesses to gain share.”

Environmental Compliance

Sustainability is a key driver for the industrial coatings market in terms of meeting stricter and constantly evolving environmental regulations, as well as increasing public awareness.

“There are a notable trend towards higher solids/lower volatile organic compounds (VOC) solvent-based coatings and an increase in demand for water-based (waterborne) coatings in certain sectors,” said Bredfeldt. “This trend will continue across all sectors as the demand increases and the coatings continue to be more robust for application. The focus on developing ever-more sustainable industrial coatings solutions also contributes to Hempel’s overarching sustainability agenda. This seeks to protect and prolong the lifecycle of assets and thereby leads to less heavy-duty equipment being produced. This minimizes waste which helps owners minimize their environmental footprint.”

Axalta’s Helfin also sees the drive for more environmentally-friendly coatings, particularly in China and Europe. 

“This shift isn’t just waterborne coatings, but also higher solids solvent-borne products.  As an example, we launched a zero VOC primer in Europe this past fall, and we can’t keep up with demand from heavy-duty equipment suppliers as well as metal component manufacturers.”

Hempel Industrial will continue to develop sustainable and scalable solutions that have the potential to expand our geographic footprint and support our global customers. Investments at our two Centers of Excellence in Dallas, TX  and Kampen, Netherlands support our drive to improve our customers’ experience.

In overall Hempel terms, 2019 will be a year of progress. The global coatings market is expected to pick up, and Hempel anticipates delivering underlying organic growth in line with or slightly better than the market. As a leading company within the global coatings industry, Hempel expects to bring more new companies into the Hempel family, as it continues its journey towards becoming a €3 billion revenue company.

New Products

Hempel is launching a new epoxy primer for heavy-duty equipment and trucks – Hempaprime Shield 700 HS.

This new coating is specifically designed to improve productivity and quality for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) by reducing production times and maximizing service life.
Following its launch in North America, Hempaprime Shield 700 HS is now available in Europe.
