YCK attends 2015 Industrial Coatings Innovation Technology Application Conference
September 8, 2015, Shanghai—Held by PCI China, the “2015 Industrial Coatings Technology Innovation Conference” on September 8th to September 9th, 2015 took place in Guangzhou City. The topic this year was “the transformation and opportunities of eco-friendly industrial coatings”, focusing on exploring more production and coatings of UV and waterborne coatings. The host invited Mr. Qi Xiangan, Ms. Miao Ning, Mr. Yang Jianwen and other experts to share their special reports. The conference is divided into two areas–the main venue and water and light curing—meanwhile held a small exhibition, attracting more than 300 participants to fully interact with each other and achieved a complete success.
The main venue was hosted by Mr. Guang Xin Gu, the associate professor of the Education of Advanced Coating Engineering Research Center and Department of Materials Science Fudan University, in the morning of the first day.
Ms. Miao Ning, a deputy researcher of Beijing Academy of Environmental Planning of the Ministry of Environmental Protection, was looking forward to the implementation of the VOC sewage charging policy and environmental tax, giving details about the background and policy framework of VOC sewage charging methods, calculation of industrial coatings’ VOC emissions, expectations of VOC environmental tax and other contents, etc., were all praised by the participants.
Mr. Xiang An Qi, Vice president and Chief Engineer of Sanyi Research Institute, discussed integration of paint and coatings, including how to define “the integration of paint and coatings”, why needed, and who should take the initiative move to promote, what are the difficulties we face currently and how to do in the future, etc.
Mr. Xiao Jun Wang, General Manager from CNNC Huayuan Titanium Ltd. gave the speech of the application features and its role of CHTI R-216 titanium dioxide in outdoor paints. He vividly gave the example of R216 design mechanism and performance, etc.
Geng Jian Zhang, Senior Technology Manager of X-Rite China also introduced its color data and applications.
Jie Xu, the Advanced Coatings Research Center of the Ministry of Education of Fudan University Department of Materials Science, gave the speech of the preparation and performance study of two-component waterborne polyurethane construction machinery topcoat. The content contained the current applications and developing directions of machinery coatings, the difficulties of its development, solutions for drying and foaming in water based polyurethane coatings, etc.
Mr. Jun Xu, the Technical Service Manager of Nuplex Resin China, explained the waterborne resin technology for metal protection and decoration, focusing on the waterborne techniques from Nuplex and other waterborne technical application in different metal protection fields in the market. It offers the formulators some references for choosing multi-function technologies, including one-component drying system at low temperature, two-component system at low temperature, paint system and others, etc.
Ms. Xiao Ni Zhang, the Chemist of OMG Technical Services Division, introduced OMG waterborne additives, including wetting dispersing agent, rheological additives, water-based drying agent and catalyst and surface additives, focusing on the recommendation of water-based applications.
Asia Pacific Cabot Corporation Marketing Manager, Mr. Zheng Tang, described the solutions for water-based coating raw materials, including the latest generation of easily dispersed water-based carbon black, the pigment carbon black of MONARCH® 880, CAB-O-SIL® fumed silica products, CAB-O-SPERSE® water-based dispersing liquid, etc.
The Technical Manager of Zhejiang Nanomei New Materials Ltd., Tao Zhang, explained the choosing standard of pigments for water-based coatings. It is mainly considered its particles, viscosity, dispersing agent, anti-foaming agent, etc. of pigments. He indicated that when leveling up the additional amounts of additives, the dispersing agent or dispersing resin in the pigment will affect the resin cross-linking reaction in the coatings. It should be focusing on floor paint, wood paint and industrial paint.
Mr. Yang Jianwen, the Chairman of China Society for Radiation Therapy, explained the light curing technology and industry development trend from domestic to foreign lands, including various light curing technologies, curing repair of city drainage pipeline, outdoor UV aging, UV 3D printing, UV LED of initiator system, Domino light curing, UV coating anti-fouling researches and high-end applications, imitation shark skin effect of UV coating and latest researches, etc. The content was informative and highly praised.
The Engineer of The Marketing Department of Tianyin, Mr. Bin He, described the study process of active diluting agent for UV curing coatings, including methallyl monoether, binary methallyl ether, glycol or polyol dimethyl allyl ether and methallyl glycidyl ether, etc. He also gave some examples of its applications.
Mr. Bai Chuan Li from Penn Color Shanghai Chemical Co.,Ltd., introduced the developing trend of UV coatings and UV pigments, including the drawbacks and solutions of UV coatings, etc. He mentioned: “Currently, the global output value of radiation curing products accounts for 1.72%-2.0% while the proportion of China light curing products is relatively lower, therefore, the light curing coating have huge potential in the market.”
The focus on waterborne and UV coatings has attracted numerous representatives of wood coatings manufacturers to participate in, including AKZO NOBEL, COSCO Kansai Paint & Chemicals, Nippon, TREFFERT, Axalta, PPG, Valspar, Sherwin-Williams, Jotun, CMW, Yung Chi Paint & Varnish, Carpoly, Maydos, Bauhinia, Taiho, Clivia, Changrunfa, Chenyang Waterborne Paint, Zhanchen, etc. leading manufacturing companies.
