Science and Tech Solutions Meet the Flooring Crisis

Environmental issues and shortages in supply chain raw materials are stretching the flooring industry worldwide. Here, Vik Vithlani, of Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings EMEAI, examines how science and technology are finding th…

Metal Adhesion and Corrosion Resistance of Coatings

The improved adhesion, good corrosion resistance and good QUV gloss retention show that the hydrophobic resin in the hybrid polymer can be used to reduce the effects of high acid on corrosion and of styrene on QUV gloss retention.

Going Nano to Mimic Penetration of Solvent-Based Products

Greater awareness of phenomena that occur on a nanometric scale and subsequent testing (both in application and synthesis of polymers) have led to the development of new materials with better performance characteristics than the traditional on…
