    OPTIMIZING BENEFITS OF TiO2 IN PAINTS

    DAY 1 (November 18) 1:30pm - 4:30pm
    SNIEC E2-M14

    Workshop will be conducted in English, with Chinese Interpretation.

     

    OUTLINE

    Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) is found in virtually every coatings lab and manufacturing site around the world and is used in almost all paints. Its primary role is to provide brightness and opacity, with secondary role to improve durability in many exterior paints. The effectiveness of TiO2 as a brightener or opacifier is greatly affected by the specifics of paint formulation and paint making process. This sensitivity can be understood in terms of the physics that govern light scattering. In this Workshop, we will review the physical properties that make TiO2 a strong scatterer of visible light, and how different formulation parameters affect light scattering (TiO2 level, level and type of other solids such as extenders and resin, and how the paint is made). We will then apply this understanding as a guide to how to use TiO2 at its greatest efficiency.

    KEY AREAS

    • Unique physical properties of TiO2, e.g. light scattering
    • Formulation factors that can help or hurt light scattering efficiency of TiO2
    • Optimizing light scattering efficiency of TiO2 in paints
    • Strategies to reduce cost in paint production

    WORKSHOP 2

    RATIONAL FORMULATION TECHNOLOGIES IN WATERBORNE COATINGS

    —Materials, Practices & Applications

    DAY 2 (November 19) 9:30am - 12:30pm
    SNIEC E2-M14

    Workshop will be conducted in English, with Chinese Interpretation.

     

    OUTLINE

    Although there are significant advances in materials technology, use of waterborne coatings remains limited in coatings market. This can be attributed to perceptions of poorer performance and higher costs when compared to solvent-based solutions. However, recently the introduction of stricter VOC and other regulations around the globe has driven the switching to water-based systems. Furthermore, the global efforts in waterborne coatings have continuously focused on reducing VOC, co-solvent levels, cost versus performance, ease of application, long-term durability. This Workshop will present Rational Formulation Methodologies that result in cost effective high-performance waterborne coatings for a wide range of applications and markets.

    KEY AREAS

    • Rational formulation concept and practices over conventional approaches
    • Selection, properties and application of waterborne coatings (key industries)
    • Improving durability and performance of waterborne coatings
    • Raw materials development and product opportunity creation

    WORKSHOP 3

    DESIGN & APPLICATION OF WATERBORNE INDUSTRIAL COATINGS

    —Achieving Competitive Advantages & High-Quality Development

    DAY 2 (November 19) 1:30pm - 4:30pm
    SNIEC E2-M14

    Workshop will be conducted in Chinese (Putonghua).

     

    OUTLINE

    In recent years, the Government and related associations have set more standards related to industrial coatings on various aspects of environmental protection and safety use. These new standards pose challenges for waterborne (WB) industrial coatings formulators, while at the same time bring new business opportunities. Since 2017, the freight container industry has completed conversion to WB coatings for all regular dry containers, providing many experiences worthy of reference for WB industrial coatings in other sectors. This Technical Workshop will cover the latest trends and technology advances of WB industrial coatings, and also discuss about material selection, design and formulation, application case studies and product life cycle assessment, in order to improve performance, reduce cost, turn innovations into competitive advantages and embark upon high-quality development.

    KEY AREAS

    • Current issues and difficulties encountered in WB industrial coatings
    • Smart WB industrial coatings engineering - material selection, design and formulation
    • WB industrial coating applications - success stories
    • Cases of life cycle analysis of products for high-quality development

    DESIGN & FORMULATION FOR LOW VOC, HIGH PERFORMANCE WATERBORNE METAL PROTECTIVE COATINGS

    Tutor: Dr. Cai Yu, BSc, PhD
    TS & D Scientist, Dow Coating Materials, Dow Chemical Co., Ltd.

     

    TUTORIAL CONTENTS

    China's growing economy and rising public environmental awareness have significantly driven the demand for greener coatings applications and products, in turn expanding the waterborne coatings market. Demand for waterborne metal anti-corrosive coatings, as an important category of the waterborne coatings, is particularly high. In fact, many paint makers and raw material suppliers are currently looking for cost-effective solutions with similar performance to solvent borne coatings. Technical Workshop I focuses on the design and formulation of low-VOC environmentally-friendly and high-performance waterborne metal protective coatings. In addition, it talks about troubleshooting issues at the preparation and production of waterborne coatings, such as slow drying, storage stability, sag defects and short pot-life of 2K waterborne coatings, etc. The Workshop also provides related application cases about waterborne metal protective coatings raw materials selection and coatings formulations.

    TUTORIAL CONTENTS

    Most industries have a love-and-hate relationship with sustainability. Like many other industries, coatings and ink industries saw the demand for sustainable products as an unwelcome challenge, and some still do! However, it is obvious that the winners are those who understood the inevitability of the move towards sustainability, embraced the challenge and embarked on the long journey towards sustainability ahead of their peers. Today, few serious companies do not place sustainability high on their agenda. But the visionaries have already taken the advantage of head-start and expanded their sustainability agenda well beyond reducing VOCs and into improving air quality, reducing carbon footprint, increasing the use of bio-based and renewable ingredients. Technical Workshop III covers innovative technologies and solutions for sustainable coatings and inks, and is exemplified by case studies to hopefully help boost or enhance your business sustainability.
