H Charlotte becomes a coatings mecca
this week as experts from around the
globe arrive for the American Coatings
Conference (ACC) and American Coat-
ings Show (ACS). The United States
leading industry event, the ACS and
ACC provide attendees with an unpar-
alleled opportunity to check out the
latest innovations and exchange ideas.
Nearly 100 high-level technical papers
were selected for the ACC, which attract-
ed 876 registered attendees, compared to
736 in 2008. We are excited that atten-
dance has grown, says Cheryl Matthews
of the American Coatings Association.
Its terric to have such strong support
from the major industry players.
The ACS is similarly off to a promis-
ing start. More than 3,000 people pre-
registered for the show with many more
expected to arrive in the coming days.
There are 328 exhibitors compared to
331 in 2008. Despite the tough econom-
ic climate, exhibitor numbers are hold-
ing steady, says Friederike Plasswich
of Vincentz Network. The strong pre-
registration gures suggest that overall
attendance will surpass 2008 numbers.
The events leading reputation is re-
ected by its growing globalism. In 2008
the ACS attracted attendees from 48
countries; people from 61 nations pre-
registered this year, with visitors hailing
from places as far as New Zealand and
Brazil. The last two years have been dif-
cult, says Dirk Ebener of Nuremberg
Messe North America. But the global
attendance and the positive mood on the
exhibition oor suggest that the industry
is focusing on growth.

AC Conference
www.american-coatings-show.com 4
H The Charlotte Convention Center
ballroom was a buzz yesterday as coat-
ings experts assembled for the ofcial
launch of the 2010 American Coatings
Conference (ACC). This years event
exceeded expectations: 876 people
registered for the conference, up from
736 in 2008; the 96 presentation slots
attracted 226 abstracts. In addition, 46
research teams were invited to submit
posters for informal discussion.
Following brief introductions, hosts
Steve Sides of the American Coatings
Association (ACA), and Sonja Schulte of
Vincentz Network, invited guest speak-
ers Dennis Ryer of Cook Composites &
Polymers (CCP), Bob Enouen of Procter &
Gamble (P&G), and Ken Perry of BASF, to
deliver keynote presentations.
In the rst talk, Enouen and Ryer dis-
cussed a groundbreaking collaboration
between PG&E and CCP to produce new
sucrose ester alkyd resins for low VOC
coatings applications. They explained
how their companies overcame techni-
cal challenges to make products that are
not only green but also outperform tradi-
tional solventbased alkyds. Together,
we were able to create more value than
we could have done alone, said Enouen.
Our skill sets were complementary and
we shared a common goal and vision.
Perrys presentation focused on sustain-
ing innovation in difcult times. He spoke
about the impact of the recession on the
automotive coatings sector and urged or-
ganizations to keep innovation and sus-
tainability at the heart of their strategies
by developing strong leadership, stream-
lining processes and adopting a strategic
market focus. When times are tough,
companies tend to cut projects with long-
term returns in order to save money in the
short-term, said Perrry. But the best
time to innovate is when everyone else is
cutting back.

Awarding Innovations
H In 2008, Vincentz Network and the
American Coatings Association created
a prestigious award to honor the most
outstanding conference presentation
at the American Coatings Conference
(ACC). One of the highlights of the ACC,
the presentation of the 2010 AC Award
took place during the opening plenary
session yesterday afternoon following
the keynote presentations.
A BASF research team won this years
prize for its groundbreaking work on
improving waterborne anticorrosion
coatings via new binder concepts. Sonja
Schulte of Vincentz Network, and Steve
Sides of the American Coatings Associa-
tion, invited BASF team members Oihana
Elizalde and Collin Moore to the stage to
accept a handsome statue and $2,500
in prize money. A third team member,
Stephan Amthor, was not in attendance.
BASFs paper highlights recent innova-
tions in the area of polymer colloids and
hybrids that offer opportunities to develop
novel coatings for metal protection. The re-
search demonstrated the possibilities for
designing acrylic binders with enhanced
barrier properties, low water uptake and
improved anticorrosion properties.
We are thrilled to receive this award,
said Moore before the conference or-

(see gure 1). A secondary question,
namely to what extent fossil-based raw
materials will be replaced by renewable
resources in the next ve years, yielded
interesting response. Nearly 50 percent
of the respondents expected the extent
to amount to 10 percent (see gure 2).
When asked for which raw material
classes they expect a signicant increase
in renewable raw materials, 63 percent
of respondents indicated binders and
resins, followed by additives, llers and
pigments. Obviously, market demands
are the main driver for green R&D ac-
tivities: 64 percent of respondents view
them as the most important factor, with
legislation, care and responsibility for
society, energy prices and raw material
prices following.

We Use Natural Plant Oils to Produce our Alkyd Latex Resins
H What is the recent technological
outcome of the green development in
coatings? The American Coatings Show
and Conference presents new develop-
ments and the latest trends and chal-
lenges facing the industry. ACS Daily
spoke with Leigh Ann Gibbons who
developed an alkyd latex resin based
on renewables. To learn more about
this product, meet Leigh at Reichholds
booth #1045 or attend her colleague
Jeffrey Dannemann's presentation
Alkyd Latex for Metal Protection,
tomorrow at 09:40 am at the product
presentation booth #1715.
ACS Daily: How do you characterize
the properties of this new alkyd latex
compared to recent alkyd products for
decorative coatings?
Leigh Ann Gibbons: Beckosol AQ is
a new technology platform that brings
the benets of alkyd chemistry into the
future. This product line is both low VOC
and made from 40-60 percent renewable
resources. It brings all the features you
expect from an alkyd: the ease of applica-
tion, high gloss and good ow and level-
ing without the use of solvents. Our rst
generation products were aimed to tackle
architectural applications such as stains
and enamels. We have now expanded the
line to include products designed for use in
Leigh Ann Gibbons,
Reichhold, Inc.
Booth #1045
metal primers and general purpose prim-
ers for both stain and tannin blocking. Our
technology group continues to work dili-
gently on growing the product line to pro-
vide products for other traditionally high
VOC applications. In todays changing
market, we offer an answer to the growing
need to meet more stringent regulations
and performance requirements. Our goal
is to provide alkyd latex resins mixed with
environmental responsibility.
What kind of renewables are the
basis for this product and how do
you guarantee the same performance
compared to 100 percent fossil raw
Leigh Ann Gibbons: The renewable
resource aspect of our product line is
something we are proud of and we hope
to spread the message that low VOC does
not always mean a product is the best
choice or sustainable. We use natural
plant oils to produce our alkyd latex re-
sins, unlike acrylics which are based on
petroleum feed stock. Since this product
line uses conventional alkyd chemistry
emulsied in water, our customers are
getting all the performance they expect
when choosing an alkyd without the VOC.
We have performed rigorous applications
testing to prove that our alkyd latex re sins
perform just as good, if not better, than
their solventborne alkyd predecessors.
The performance beats acrylics in gloss,
open time, ow and leveling and adhe-
sion. It also has alkyd like durabi lity, so
our customers can feel good about their
end products life cycle.
Why do you need less additives in
paints with your new resin?
Leigh Ann Gibbons: Our product devel-
opment requires an altogether approach
to the art of formulating a suitable coat-
ing. Since AQ is classied as an alkyd
BASF_ACS_tab_120109.indd 1
latex, take a few tricks from alkyd for-
mulation and mix them with a few from
latex formulation and the result is a low
VOC, renewable resource based power-
house of a coating system. The product
still requires the use of additives, as do
other paint formulations, but does not re-
quire the use of solvents (VOC) to ensure
coating performance properties.

What, When, Where?
Greening Trends Will Open up Markets
The Canadian coatings market intensies the shift towards economic low VOC systems
ACS Daily: How is the Canadian coat-
ings market structured? What is the
relation of imports to exports? To what
extent will this ratio change?
Jim Quick: We are structured very simi-
lar to the US market with architectural,
industrial and automotive renish sector
markets. In 2008, paint exports in Cana-
da represented 43 percent of the market.
The ratios of Canadian paint exports over
domestic paint shipments have been go-
ing up steadily over the past 10 years.
However, this trend reversed in 2009, as a
result of the world-wide economic reces-
sion. This was not unique to the coatings
sector, since the chemical industry gene-
rally had a tough year in 2009. For paint
exports specically, dollar sales gures
went down by 36 percent compared to the
previous year. The degree of decline in
the whole paint industry should be mod-
erate towards the end of the year.

What segments and industries show
the strongest demand for coatings?
For what types of coatings do you ex-
pect growing demand in Canada/North
Jim Quick: 2009 was a tough year to
judge demand. Paint volumes trended
negatively in all segments of the Cana-
dian industry. Architectural coatings de-
creased less signicantly than any other
sectors, as they were heavily supported
by government stimulus efforts. Longer
term greening trends will intensify the
demand for low-zero VOC products, open-
H The last year was tough for the coat-
ings industry in North America. The
impact of the nancial downturn has
hit paint manufacturers strongly. Even
if demand cannot be clearly judged,

expects the decline in exports of paints
and coatings to soften.

ing up markets for industrial, powder and
UV/radiation products.

To what extent has REACH affected
Canadian paint producers?
Jim Quick: The impact of REACH has
not affected Canadian paint produc-
ers strongly. In 2008 and 2009, almost
90 percent of paint exports in Canada
were shipped to the USA. Only three Eu-
ropean countries were among the top ten
countries buying paint from Canada i.e.
Germany, Poland and the UK and their
shares did not exceed 2 percent of the to-
tal exports.
The situation is similar with Canadian
imports: paint imported from European
countries did not exceed 6 percent.

H Prior to the start of the main confer-
ence, seven pre-conference tutorials up-
dated attendees on important coatings
technologies and applications. Offered
for the second time, the workshops were
once again a great success, with all
seven sessions entirely sold out.
The tutorials on radiation curing, corro-
sion protection, antimicrobial surfaces,
polyurethanes, easy-to-clean coatings,
waterborne clearcoats and smart coat-
ings were hosted by renowned industrial
and academic experts.
Michael J. Dvorchak of Bayer Materi-
alScience, who presented a tutorial on
radiation curing, was especially enthu-
siastic about the high level of interest in
his workshop. UV is growing with a lot
of application areas, he said. The at-
tendees have diverse backgrounds, from
paper to metal and wood.
The tutorial on corrosion protection was
designed in collaboration with the Soci-

view of the latest technologies involved in
the development of smart coatings.
Below you can read how tutorial attendees
evaluated the workshops.
Pre-Tutorial: Polyurethanes
First of all, I have to mention how
well organized the whole event is.
The presentation and handouts
were great. I learned a lot about
new coatings and raw materials
in the polyurethane technology
eld. I am especially interested
in the new isocyanates.
Irfan Raza,

The tutorial with Michael
Dvorchak gave me a lot of good
material. I feel more informed
about how to cure pigmented
coatings. He talked about the UV-

the two lampsystem with differing
wavelenghts. As a result of his talk,
we may buy a small lab system.

Versatile Solvent Gains
VOC Exemption
Kowa will feature on its stand dimethyl
carbonate (DMC), the latest solvent to
gain VOC- exempt status in the USA. DMC
was exempted from regulation as a VOC
by the EPA in January 2009.
DMC is a polar solvent, with a similar
solubility parameter to esters and glycol
ethers; thus it can dissolve most common
paint resins and is a possible replacement
for solvents such as MEK, glycol ethers,
toluene and ethyl acetate. DMC also has
a medium evaporation rate of 3.22 (rated
against butyl acetate = 1.0), low toxicity
and mild odor.

Most Dominant Trend is Simplication
smart coatings can provide functions above and beyond latest properties expected from paints and coatings
Smart coatings can provide additional benets by giving an appropriate response to outside conditions
H Smart coatings are often referred to
as structured coatings which provide
additional benets by giving an ap-
propriate response to outside condi-
tions. Self-healing, anti-ngerprint
and anti-ice coatings, to name only a
few, are topics on everyones lips. ACS
Daily spoke with James W. Rawlins, As-
sistant Professor of Polymer Science at
the University of Southern Mississippi,
who will be one of the speakers of the
ACC session on smart coatings.
ACS Daily: How do you dene smart
James W. Rawlins: I dene smart coat-
ings as protective and decorative lms
that provide functions above and be-
yond the latent properties expected from
paints and coatings. These functions may
be recognizing or sensing environmental
conditions such as exceeding a tempera-
ture threshold. Many examples exist for
any of the important environmental or
potential conditions, i.e., chemical war-
fare agents, package tipping beyond an
allowable angle, gaseous material de-
tection, food spoilage, and excessive UV
exposure have all been shown to be pos-
sible and most practical as a technology.
What are the latest trends in smart
James W. Rawlins: Trends? I think the
dichotomy between research and com-
mercialization is still large enough that
many have had an automatic negative re-
sponse to the term smart coatings. The
buzz may wear off before the reduction
to practice proves the real value addition
and economic feasibility along with ro-
bustness for each application. With that
said, I think the most dominant trend is
simplication. If a material can be easily
adapted for robust use then reduction to
practice will be more rapid and well re-
ceived. Everyone thinks about self-clean-
ing or self-healing, and both have been
proven possible: the remaining question
is how much cleaning and for how long?
Please comment on your particular
topic natural materials in synthetic
James W. Rawlins: Throughout history,
natural materials have been adapting so
they can sense, detect, and trigger re-
sponses to almost any mode of positive
or negative environmental stimuli very ef-
fectively and efciently, so it makes sense
that we should capitalize upon biological
materials. Using biomimicry to initiate our
work provides a tremendous database to
draw upon for early material understand-
ing. When properly used, the database
is so large that we could never singularly
replicate the understanding that is already
available if we look in the right places.
The biggest surprise for most is that the
natural materials, enzymes, and peptides
often have longer useful lives in polymers
and similar, or they have improved activity
in comparison with the same materials in
their natural environment.

Cooperative Efforts Between Academics and Industry Need to Improve Globally
ACS Daily: Meanwhile most water-
borne systems show equal skills to

ponents in aqueous media and meeting
the challenges of VOC and environmental
regulations to balance performance.

and industry needs to improve globally
for adaptation and incorporation of basic
sciences and fundamental principles into

What technological trends do you
expect for future waterborne systems?
Yasmin Sayed-Sweet: The trends are
innumerable, as waterborne systems

cal alternatives, example as global con-
sumer palate gets more sophisticated
and conscious of the green environ-
ment we will see more usage of ultra low
and low VOC coatings, greater use of

AC Literature
A World of Quality Information
An extensive series of technological coatings textbooks is available at the ACS
ACS Daily: How much progress
have high solids made during the last
Tony Rende, OPC Polymers: We have
seen signicant gains in the use of High
Solids technology as the AIM regula-
tions have come into force. Ten years ago
high solids technology probably repre-
sented less than 1 percent of the total res-
in sales, now they can account for much
as 10 percent of total alkyd resin sales.
In that time, the high solids offerings
have increased from just a few special-
ized products to a more robust and com-
plete product line with multiple offerings
across the full spectrum of alkyd resins
technologies. Today there is a high sol-
ids offset available for nearly every con-
ventional resin type.
Where do you see the largest poten-
tials for this technology?
Tony Rende: When rst introduced,
high solids resins offered the quick-
est approach to meeting the regulatory
targets at that time. However with the
introduction of exempt solvents such as
Oxsol and TBA and the more recent em-
phasis on alkyd emulsions and disper-
sions, there are more options available to
the formulator.
We expect continued growth of high so-
lids, but possibly at a slower pace as a re-
sult of the introduction of complaint sol-
vents and waterborne alkyd alternatives.
Just as high solids versions have been
introduced to duplicate the conventional
resin product line, we now have the same
range available in exempt solvent techno-
logies and we expect that, in the next few
years, we will see the same with the alkyd
emulsion and dispersion technology.
ACS Daily: Which analytical methods
do you recommend as the most impor-
tant for developing a coating?
Stephen C. Hall: To understand the per-
formance and aesthetic properties of a
coating, you must rst understand the
performance targets and technical barri-
ers. The analytical techniques can range
from Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA),
to modulated Differential Scanning Calo-
rimetry (mDSC), particle size distribu-
tion (PSD), molecular weight obtained
through Gel Permeation Chromatogra-
phy (GPC), Dynamic Contact Angle (DCA),
Dynamic Mechanical Angle (DMA), etc.
The most important analytical technique
to develop a unique coating is to truly un-
derstand the chemistry. Simply putting
raw materials together without knowing
the interaction or chemical structure is
not sufcient. Coatings development re-
quires consideration of not only how the
coating is produced, but how it is applied
and the mode of cure.
How do you deal with failure analy-
sis during production control?
Stephen C. Hall: Failure analysis can be
dened as the process of collecting and
analyzing data to determine the cause of
a failure. Inspection alone (in manufac-
turing) can only detect that there is a fail-
ure in production and does not lend itself
to the mode of failure. Process control, in
my opinion, is the single most valuable
tool for production. Proven process con-
trol parameters can expedite the failure
mode analysis. The systematic analysis
for failure can only be effective if the root
cause of the failure is dened before any
corrective action is implemented. If a cor-
rective action is implemented prior to
this important step, then the process is
still out of control. For example, if the vis-
cosity of a coating is out of specication,
a review of the actual process compared
to the control is required. A set of steps
to dene how to correct the issue is well
dened within the control parameters. Of
course, a knowledgeable and procient
production staff is needed to ensure con-
formance to all production parameters.

Roger Dietrich imparts in his book
Paint Analysis, comprehensive know-
ledge in the eld of instrumental paint
analysis. This book will assist you with
your daily work. It is an excellent combina-
tion of therory and practice. The detailed
theoretical section reviews the va-rious
methods employed in paint analysis,
while the applications section presents
numerous examples which illustrate the
scope for empolying them in practice.
The book High Solid Binders by Mir-
cea Manea delivers comprehensive knowl-
edge in the eld of high solid systems.
More especially, it provides an overview of
the various classes of binders and ways of
transforming them into high solid bind-
ers. It lists a broad range of options and
approaches for tackling technological and
environmental problems.
H In conjunction with Elsevier, your contact in North America, Vincentz Network
presents to you the world of coatings technology information from renowned
experts for professionals. With brand new titles of technical coa t ings textbooks, we
provide a selection that is targeted at both newcomers to the eld of coatings, as
well as at specialists. Below we present a selection of two titles and latest market
information from experts regarding these topics.
Broad Exposure to New Technology
ACS provides good Opportunities for Students and Universities
H ACS not only provides a rst-class
forum for coatings companies: universi-
ties and research institutions also have
a great opportunity to present their
work, share their knowledge and meet
with other industry experts. ACS Daily
asked Michael Van De Mark, Director of
Missouri S&T Coatings Institute, about
his expectations for the show.
ACS Daily: Why does your institute
exhibit at the American Coatings
Show 2010?
Michael Van De Mark: The American
Coatings Show has been an integral
component of our program for many
years. The American Coatings Show
gives Missouri S&T Coatings Institute an
opportunity to show the coatings indus-
try our students, research and programs.
We also utilize this as an opportunity to
meet with many alumni, short-course
participants and companies with whom
we have worked over the years. The show
also gives us the best broad-based expo-
sure to new technology.
What technological trends do you
expect to see in Charlotte?
Michael Van De Mark: The main tech-
nologies I expect to see are the applica-
tion of nanotechnology, new methods to
lower VOC and approaches to environ-
mental challenges. The issue of the total
environmental impact should be gaining
exposure. This approach includes the
new BEES model being pushed by the
Department of Agriculture and NIST for
coatings application.
What R&D projects is your institute
currently working on?
Michael Van De Mark: We are working on
new resin technology. The three major ar-

UV system used for the dual cure

Science & Technology,

eas include a more rapid coalescing water-
borne resin, better freeze thaw resistance,
and natural product derived resins. We are
also working on dual cure resin technology.
The dual cure will use both photochemicals
and a second curing system to gain rapid
dry to handle and yet fully cure for ultimate
performance. Low cost and solventless
coatings are the target.

2. Shift towards eld products: Improve-
ments in eld equipment design and reli-
ability coupled with novel 100 percent
UV and waterborne UV formulations are
moving technology out of the factory into
new are as such as oor coatings and re-
3. Change in substrates: With advances
in molecular design, there has been a
recent trend away from (semi) porous
substrates, such as wood and paper, and
towards applications involving metal and
plastic substrates. Advanced coil coating
trials led by major industry players, as
well as the increased adoption of special-
ty UV coatings in the consumer electronic
industry, are good examples.
4. Adoption of waterborne UV: UV wa-
terbased technology has continued to
grow across several market segments
due to its successful combination of low
viscosity, high performance and compli-
ance with various environmental regula-
tions (VOC, HAPS, green labeling).
5. Sustainability: UV technology already
has an excellent eco-friendly prole (low
VOC, low energy, etc.) but there has been
a clear trend in the market towards low
carbon footprint and adoption of renew-
able raw materials in formulations.
In which markets do you expect the
strongest growth of UV technology?
Doug Hartman: Advances in both chem-
istry and application technologies are ac-
celerating the adoption of UV technology.
Four markets that we believe will show
strong growth as a result are:
1. UV waterbased wood nishes: Al-
ready well established in the parquet
segment, UV curing is ideally positioned
to grow in the broader furniture market,
thanks to recent advances in waterborne
resins that overcome both environmental
and technical challenges. Novel solvent-
free UV curable polyurethane dispersions
have already been shown to outperform
other coating technologies in terms of
wood wetting, abrasion, scratch resis-
tance and stain resistance.
2. Field applied oor coatings: Further
engineering of movable UV curing units,
together with development of suitable
UV resins, will permit a rapid growth of
UV technology in eld applied concrete,
plastic and wood coatings.
3. Consumer electronics: We expect
strong growth in various plastic hard
coating markets, where the use of new
UV curable polyurethane dispersions
allow for spray application without sol-
vents and top-of-
the-range coating
4. Packaging:
As a pioneer in
the development
of low extract-
able and lowodor
(LEO) re sins for en-
ergy curable inks
and coatings, we
strongly believe
in the continuous
growth of this tech-
nology in the food
packaging value
What needs have not yet been met but
will be resolved within the next few years?
Doug Hartman: Advances in devel-
opment of UV curable materials with
enhanced barrier properties, in combi-
nation with exibility and outdoor resis-
tance, will enable the penetration of UV
technology into emerging electronic ap-
plications such as LED displays and pho-
tovoltaic applications.
As the use of plastics increases in the
packaging and label industry, innovative
solutions which permit adhesion on dif-
cult substrates (e.g. BOPP), will allow
further penetration of Radcure technol-
ogy in the printing industry.
Clear Trend towards Low Carbon Footprint
UV-Technology is expected to show strong Growth
H Advances in both chemistry and
application technologies are accelerat-
ing the adoption of UV-technology in
various markets. In an interview with
ACS Daily, Doug Hartman, Global Mar-
keting Director at Cytec UV/EB curable
resins & additives, emphasizes the
eco-friendly prole of this technology.
ACS Daily: What have been the big-
gest steps for UV technology over the
last ve years?
Doug Hartman: We continue to moni-
tor and play a key role in driving broader
adoption of UV-technology across multi-
ple coating and graphic segments. Some
of the major shifts that we have observed
over the last ve years include:
1. Low energy cure alternatives: De-
velopment of low energy curing lamps
(such as UV LED and UV-A) and of tailor-
made resins broadened the Radcure
technology application window in areas
such as graphics, wood coatings, and au-
tomotive renish.
UV technology is also used for electronic applications such as LED displays
