ABRAFATI 2017: ADDING VALUE TO THE COATINGS SUPPLY CHAIN

As the largest coatings industry event in Latin America and one of the most important of its kind around the world, ABRAFATI 2017 (Congress and Suppliers Exhibition) is going to bring together those businesses and professionals that are most representative of the supply chain. With the activities involved and the results it will deliver to participants, the trade show is going to contribute to adding value to the industry and its products, moving it forward and expanding the recognition of its importance by the consumer market and society alike.

Current and future demands from the coatings supply chain and users of their products will be under discussion, as innovations are introduced which will contribute to evolutionary leaps and enhance the perceived benefits of using paints and coatings.

by Fabio Humberg

Participation aimed at advertising Brazilian event among potential lecturers, as well as exhibitors and visitors.


Next April 4 through 6, ABRAFATI will be at the European Coatings Show, in Nuremberg, Germany. It is the industry’s largest event in Europe and one of the most important in the global coatings calendar, and it also comprises the European Coatings Conference, to be held on the 3rd and 4th.

The participation is going to be a major opportunity to bolster the advertising of ABRAFATI 2017 and consolidate its image among broad, qualified audiences: in its previous edition, the ECS received 28,500 visitors, particularly from Europe and Asia, and that number is expected to either be the same or even grow this year.

“Our event boasts global representativeness and relies on strong participation by foreign businesses and professionals. But we think we still can draw even more exhibitors, visitors, lecturers and congress attendees from abroad, who will then bring to ABRAFATI 2017 the latest innovations and the most relevant research efforts developed to add value to paints and coatings and to push the industry forward,” says ABRAFATI 2017 coordinator Telma Florêncio.

Archroma, a global leader in color and specialty chemicals, has officially inaugurated its new Global Center of Excellence for Surface & Coating Technology. The Center, which opened yesterday, underlines Archroma’s ambition to bring new, innovative solutions to the packaging and specialty paper markets.
The brand new Global Center of Excellence for Surface & Coating Technology is based in Bradford, UK, at the location of Archroma's application laboratory team for deposit control. It hosts the global product manager for Surface & Coating and a team of application experts, all with close links to Archroma's Research & Development organization and the sales teams around the globe. Over the last four months, the existing laboratory facilities have been extended and state-of-the-art equipment for application development and measurement have been installed.
This investment emphasizes the commitment by Archroma to bring new technologies in the area of barrier and surface coating to the packaging market. At the opening session, Beate Plueckhan, President Region EMEA, commented on the potential offered by this market: "Especially in the area of food packaging, consumers are looking for safe, convenient and sustainable packaging. This offers many opportunities to market new surface & coating solutions. With its technology and application know-how Archroma is well positioned to participate more intensively in this growing market."
The new application laboratory will also allow Archroma to quickly run application tests for packaging producers, as well as to develop customized recipes for them.
During the last few years, Archroma has launched several eco-advanced innovations in the area of food packaging. Its solutions are widely accepted in the market and the company is continuing to strengthen its capacities in order to support the segment's increasing demands. Examples include:
Cartaguard® KST liq: A cationic fluoropolymer providing a strong and long-lasting barrier to grease and water. FDA and BfR approved.
Cartaseal® HFU liq: A recyclable wax alternative coating for corrugated packaging and multipurpose water barrier coating. Fluorine-free and FDA compliant.
Cartaseal® VWF liq: Extremely flexible water vapor barrier coating imparting grease, oil, fat and solvent resistance. It is a FDA and BfR approved fluorine-free alternative providing complete protection ideal for ream wrap, food and pharmaceutical packaging.
"These products are great examples highlighting Archroma's ability to provide a specific solution for every individual packaging challenge: be it superior barrier properties to oil, water and water vapor, be it excellent printability, glueability, and heat sealability, or temperature resistance. With the new Center of Excellence for Surface & Coating we will be able to collaborate even more closely with customers," said Andy Bell, Global Product Manager Surface & Coating. "Safety and sustainability are two areas to which we pay special attention, which is why our innovation pipeline is geared up to provide new food contact approved solutions with a strong focus on recyclability and biodegradability," added Andy Bell.

There’s no compromising the coating system with BYK additives

in RELEASE EXPOSITOR

by Fabio Humberg

The times when a decorative coating for interior or exterior use in the architectural sector was simply paint without any function are long since gone. Likewise, the regulatory demands on coating producers increase significantly from year to year.
BYK, one of the world's leading suppliers of tailor-made additives for the paint and coatings industry, has been working for many years on steadily enhancing the functionality and look of architectural coatings that combine both optimum performance and environmental friendliness.
New product developments that BYK will be presenting for the first time during the European Coatings Show (April 4 - 6 in Nuremberg) satisfy these requirements.
DISPERBYK-2062 is a VOC- and APEO-free wetting and dispersing additive for the manufacture of universal pigment concentrates. It augments the existing BYK portfolio in terms of improving the compatibility of inorganic pigment concentrates in both solvent-borne and aqueous systems, and satisfies all the regulations and quality labels in the architectural coatings sector.
Another focus of the development work has centered on the systematic expansion of the product portfolio for rheology additives. As a result, BYK is presenting both a new high-shear and a new low-shear thickener, which are impressive not only due to their absence of APEO, VOCs, S-VOCs, tin and propylene glycol, but also due to their extreme effectiveness.
OPTIFLO-T 1010 is a high-performance liquid rheology additive for aqueous systems. Due to its specific impact in the high-shear range, this additive provides a clear improvement in syneresis, spatter resistance and brushability.
Additionally, a newly developed low-shear thickener will be introduced at ECS. This additive specifically creates pseudoplastic flow behavior, which impacts positively on the anti-sagging properties and the storage stability in aqueous coating systems.
The additives are practically suitable for any application, provide a high degree of effectiveness and reduce the complexity of the coating system.

About BYK Additives & Instruments:
BYK Additives & Instruments is one of the world’s leading suppliers in the field of additives and measuring instruments. Additives are chemical substances which, when used in small quantities, improve product properties such as scratch resistance or surface gloss. Manufacturing processes are also optimized by the addition of additives.
The coatings, inks and plastics industries are among the main consumers of BYK additives. Yet with exploration technology oil/gas, the manufacture of care products, the production of adhesives and sealants, and construction chemistry, too, BYK additives improve the product characteristics and production processes. Testing and measuring instruments from BYK can effectively evaluate the quality of color, gloss and appearance as well as the physical properties of paint, plastic and paper products and are an important part of quality control.
As a globally operating specialty chemicals company, BYK has production sites in Wesel, Kempen, Moosburg , Schkopau, Bensheim and Geretsried (Germany), Deventer, Denekamp and Nijverdal (Netherlands), Widnes (UK), Wallingford, Chester, Gonzales, Louisville, St. Louis and Rochester Hills (USA) as well as in Tongling (China). Today the company employs around 2,100 people worldwide and forms part of the ALTANA Group.
