Innovative Fluorosurfactants and Fluoropolymers for Surface Protection

Maflon is one of the leader in Fluoro-Carbon specialties, focused on fluorinated products and their applications.

Fluorosurfactants give excellent wetting, spreading and levelling properties in coating, cleaners and polish systems, mainly in all the applications where surface tension is an essential factor to determinate the performance of the final product.

On the other hand, fluoropolymers could create a durable and transparent protection on several surfaces like stone, wood, leather and textile, providing a highly effective defense against agents like water, oil, soil, food and beverages.

A specific research team is always looking for innovative solutions, trying to provide new and eco-friendly constituents that could make the difference once formulated, granting Maflon a constant growth during the recent years.

Rediscovering the Unique Versatility of Alkanolamines to Optimize Next-Generation Paint Formulations

Alkanolamines, such as 2-amino-2-methyl-1-propanol (AMP) and 2-amino-2-ethyl-1,3-propanediol (AEPD), are commonly used as key stabilising agents in a wide range of waterborne paint formulations. The versatile performance of these Alkanolamines, and their synergistic effect with a wide range of commercial dispersing agents, can help formulators achieve optimum particle size distribution of titanium dioxide, which leads to ideal light scattering that drives dry film opacity. In addition, depending on the chemical structure of alkanolamines, the ability of scavenging VOC and Aldehydes support the improvement of the indoor air quality, which is part of the growing expectation of consumers. Moreover, the combination of registered biocides such as BIT or CMIT/MIT with few specific alkanolamines can enhance the in-can bioprotection during storage enabling a longer shelf lifes. This comprehensive work should help formulators to improve final dry film performances.

Titanium Dioxide Classification – The Distributor Perspective

In 2020 it was publicised that titanium dioxide in powder form would be classed as a carcinogen. The classification comes with a lot of confusion for both manufacturers and users of titanium dioxide. We will find out this year when the classification will come into effect and the implications it will have on the coatings industry. Kevin will be explaining the options coatings users have and how Rakem are here to provide support and advice on the classification and offer alternatives in formulations.

The Age of Aquareous – Taking Waterborne Epoxies All The Way

The market for waterborne epoxy coatings is experiencing a unique “green wave” of change that started in China but is being felt around the world. The main driver for the enormous growth of waterborne coatings technologies is undoubtedly VOC reduction, and current epoxy binders allow formulated paints to meet the most stringent VOC legislation. Yet, many of today’s offerings still use considerable amounts of co-solvent. While conventional, co-solvent based waterborne epoxy technologies are becoming standard practice around the world, the next level of innovation will have to take the waterborne concept to its true meaning by completely removing co-solvents from binders and formulations.

Linda Coppin of Hexion B.V. will present a new co-solvent free waterborne epoxy system, EPI-REZTM 7723-W-53, that fulfils the highest requirements in metal and concrete protection, and discuss new challenges faced by developers and formulators in their quest for ultra-low VOC waterborne paints.

The Newest Additive Technologies for Waterborne Coatings

Water Borne Coatings are the new challenges in the Marine&Protective Coating market.

The requirements in this market segment are significantly more challenging than in the conventional paint markets.

The presentation will give the latest information about wetting and dispersing additives with no negative impact on corrosion,

"Complex" defoamer technology for high build, bubble-free coating thicknesses and a new rheology additive with low in can viscosity, but high sag resistance and anti-settling performance.

Three innovations that make the difference.

Titanium Dioxide Classification – Protecting the Operative

In 2020 it was publicised that titanium dioxide in powder form would be classed as a carcinogen. The classification comes with a lot of confusion for both manufacturers and users of titanium dioxide. For many of our customers adapting manufacturing sites will be extremely costly. However, for both ourselves and our customers the safety of operatives should be the number one priority. Maker is here to offer alternative solutions such as ready-made dispersions to ensure businesses continue to run smoothly.  Kieran will be exploring what options customers and users of titanium dioxide have and the safest practices in manufacturing.

An Introduction to China Chemical Regulatory Management

As an increasing number of European companies are expanding into the Chinese market, CIRS will provide an overview of the Chemical Regulatory Management system in China to all attendees of Surfex 2020. This presentation will encompass an overview of the Chemical Regulatory framework in China including, China REACH, China Hazardous Chemical Management, China GHS and expert compliance advice from CIRS. While also discussing the similarities and in particular the differences between EU REACH and China REACH.

Polurgreen Line: Low Free Monomer Content Isocyanic Resins

POLURGREEN LINE: LOW FREE MONOMER CONTENT ISOCYANIC RESISNS

After Germany’s investigation on isocyanates monomer’s effect on respiratory system, and restriction dossier submitted to ECHA, we are now waiting for European Commission decision.

The restrictions will affect all products with isocyanate monomer content higher than 0.1%.

They will impact on:

-Product labelling

-Application and safety equipment

-Training on people involved with the product manipulation.

S.A.P.C.I. is ready to supply a whole product line with a monomer content lower than 0.1%

The product replacing on customer formulation on the standard supply form, is very easy.
