Colour My World! New Tools for Improving Colourant Acceptance in Waterborne Architectural Coatings

The colourants used in point-of-sale tinting systems must have excellent compatibility with different base paints to ensure consistent, reproducible colours. This remains one of the toughest challenges facing the waterborne architectural paint formulator today. This paper will describe the mechanisms involved in colourant stabilization and explain how specific surfactants can be used within the base paint formulation to prevent destabilization of the colourant, ensuring its intended performance.

Free Online Seminar: Jetstream mixer vs. Agitator - Mixing 10 Times Faster than Before

Conventional agitators and stirrers create a horizontal rotation of the liquid. The inertia of the rotating media hinders the vertical mass exchange. You could agitate for hours without the mixture becoming homogeneous. In the online seminar on 27. January, Dr. Hans-Joachim Jacob from ystral will give you some insights you've probably never heard before.

Sustainable modernization: switching from wet to dry separation

In order to meet prescribed and self-imposed climate targets, many industrial companies need to take strong action. The aim here is threefold: to reduce emissions, to become carbon neutral, and to increase energy efficiency generally. In car production, the spray booth is the biggest consumer of energy. Switching from wet to dry separation can reduce the energy required for the overall production of a car by 10%. Modernization will therefore always be worthwhile for customers.
