CHINACOAT Hosts Technical Conference, Workshops

By Kerry Pianoforte , Editor | 12.09.20

CHINACOAT held a Technical Conference and a number of workshops.
CHINACOAT continues to host technical programs alongside the exhibition – including two Technical Workshops addressing the following topics:

“Deciding Elements of Coatings/Ink Formulation Optimization” and “Waterborne Industrial Coatings Applications in Infrastructure Development” – and a series of Technical Seminars presented by exhibitors.

“Deciding Elements of Coatings/Ink Formulation Optimization” will be led by Long Lin, BSc MSc Ph.D. C.Chem FIP3 FTSC FRSC, professor of Color and Polymer Science, director of DP Centre of Industrial Collaboration, head of Department of Color Science, the University of Leeds (Leeds, UK).

The conference took place on Dec. 8 from 1:30-4:30 p.m. in Meeting Room, Canton Fair Complex (Area A).

Description: Fast-advancing coating technologies continue to help various downstream industries expand their application horizon.

The burgeoning emergence of novel materials continues to create new possibilities. Coatings researchers, formulators and material engineers constantly seek new ways to develop breakthrough products.

However, successful R&D requires well-structured knowledge, in-depth understanding, and systematic interconnection of knowledge networks.

This Technical Workshop will offer opportunities for those new to the industry to consolidate their knowledge, as well as for veterans to renew and reinforce theirs.

Various case studies will be illustrated to help enhance delegates’ practical ability to improve productivity, reduce cost and turn innovations into real competitive advantages.

“Waterborne Industrial Coatings Applications in Infrastructure Development” will be led by Dr. Cai Yu, BSc, Ph.D., TS&D scientist, Dow Coating Materials, Dow Chemical Company.

It takes place on Dec. 9 from 1:30-4:30 p.m. in Meeting Room, Canton Fair Complex.

Description: In response to the pandemic, the central government together with the provincial governments, has heavily invested in a series of infrastructure projects, with a total estimate exceeding RMB 40 trillion.

The market is widely expecting such investment will generate a high demand for coatings and paint in the near future.

The infrastructure projects not only demand high performance products but also green, high-end, no/low VOC, lead-free coatings and paint, in turn catalyzing replacement of solvent-based coatings by waterborne coatings in various applications.

This Technical Workshop will illustrate the advantages and new possibilities of WB coatings with cases, cite 1K and 2K industrial coatings formulations and their successful outputs, the development and application of industrial coating additives, as well as provide smart and innovative solutions for broader applications.

Technical Seminars are also going live for the first time this year, where visitors who are unable to participate in person can join in webinar format to interact and engage with speakers directly, and to collect relevant product information, latest technology trends and industry policies online.

Since its inception in 1996, CHINACOAT has been dedicated to providing an international trading platform for suppliers and manufacturers of the coatings industry to connect with global trade visitors, particularly from China and Asia.
