Thomas Koch (Bruno Domnick, Sven Böhm, Ralf Theissmann and Norbert Bendzko)
from Research Services KRONOS INTERNATIONAL
TiO as white pigment exists since 1821 and was used from painting artists first. Since the 1870-ies the pigment could be produced in kg units and was used for special expensive coatings like battleships. In 1906 and 1907 the industrial sulfate process was invented, and the white pigment held entry into almost all parts of human life.
Improve Applied Hiding by focussing on Rheology
from Ashland Specialty Ingredients
This course will address the rising cost and short supply of titanium dioxide which have generated renewed interest in improving hiding in latex paints.
The industry focusses on improving intrinsic hiding however ignores the fact that applied hiding is an area they can improve and optimize costs.
How to master colour accuracy in paints and coatings
This course will introduce the audience to the fundamentals of colour measurement and appearance assessments using spectrophotometers, software and controlled lighting environments. In addition, we will review the the relevant aspects of getting a proper tolerance set, communicating colour specifications accurately throughout the supply chain and ensuring ongoing colour consistency for paints and coatings production
