Powder coatings in focus - Powder coatings as anmega trend
The marketnfor powder coatings is still growing fast. Besides a capacity increase broughtnabout by new powder coating applications, the requirements for quality, systemnefficiency and reliability are also increasing. At the same time, manufacturersndemand extreme flexibility, the fast production of new qualities andntailor-made batches in small amounts. Hosokawa Alpine addressed the special requirements of the powder coating industry andnhas made enormous efforts over the last few years to offer its customersnattractive solutions. After almost two years of intensive development work andnbenchmarking, Hosokawa is launching a whole series of new developments in the powderncoating sector. What emerged from all these efforts is a sophisticated concept involving thenstandardisation of both system components and system solutions - the resultant benefits for system design, machine production and system commissioning arenobvious; our customers profit from the lower investment costs and shorter delivery times with all the advantages of a system "made in Germany". In addition to the high quality of machine and system components, the systemsnare ATEX-compliant and include state-of-the-art, comfortable and reliable control systems.

Newn Polymeric Binders and Silicones for
Paints, Coatings, Packaging, Adhesivesn and Construction Solutions
At ECS 2017, Wacker Chemie AG will be unveiling numerous innovations for paints and coatings, as well as for the construction, packaging and adhesives industries. These range from novel dispersions in dirt-repellent treatments for floors and walls, to new silicone products fornstain-resistant concrete surfaces and anti-graffiti coatings. Silane-terminated polymers improve the bonding properties of plasticizer-free adhesives, whereas new silicone resin emulsions make industrial coatings resistant to heat and the elements. New polymer dispersions perform extremely well as binders in water-repellent construction coatings, packaging adhesives, paintable sealants, high-quality interior paints and fire protection coatings. Brilliant digital printing is the strength of a new copolymer resin, while pyrogenic silicas improve rheological properties in paint, coating and adhesive applications. Munich-basednchemicals group WACKER will be presenting its innovations and comprehensive expertise on roughly 240 square meters of exhibition space. Some 70 technical experts will be on hand for informative discussions with existing and prospective customers. "The European Coatings Show is the world's leading tradeshow for paints and coatings, as well as for construction and adhesive applications. For us, this tradeshow offers anfantastic opportunity to meet with existing customers, establish new contacts and share information about current trends in the industry," explains Robert Gnann, president of WACKER SILICONES.

Zeppelin with new technology
The department Mixing Technology of Zeppelin Systems GmbH will show the brand new type of Container Mixer CMQ.
This series comes without any deep mixing head and instead with a high gloss polished plate within the mixing area. Due to a new developed mixing tool in wing design, the caking and deposits in the machine do not exist.
Because of the shape like wing of aero plane the movement will create a sucking effect on powdery materials. This results in a cleaning effect during process together with excellent quality and dispersion performance and low temperature increase. Compare to existing systems the CMQ has a low energy input with very high efficiency at shorter mixing times. Outstanding qualities will be achieved. The cleaning of the internal mixing room will just take one minute, which is a major benefit of operations with a lot of changes in colors and formulations. Further Zeppelin will display the latest technology in mixing and automatic control for bonding applications (metallic powder coats) / (Picture).

New Dispersion for Heating-systems
Surface and infrared heating systems are annalternative heating system or an addition to an already existing centralnheating system for new and old buildings. Since oil and gas heaters have anpoorer efficiency and have a much poorer CO2 balance, the infrared heatingnsystem is becoming more and more important in the future. The infrared heaters are completely different from conventional heaters becausenthey emit electromagnetic waves, so-called infrared rays. This is the best waynto transport energy. With our dispersion all common materials can be coated.nAfter an electrical connection, a current electric source can be applied andnconverts it to almost 100% in heat radiation. In this case the energy lossncompared to conventional systems is significantly lower. The lower energy lossnis essentially explained by the line resistance. The lower the resistance, thenhigher the efficiency. We have developed a dispersion that can be used in all areas of infrarednheating. Both for the impregnation of fabrics, in particular glass fibernfabrics, as well as for use as a paint coat, including a binder. Our dispersion has a lower resistance value compared to the prior art. Asndescribed above, the energy consumption can be lowered and the efficiency cannbe increased.

Conductive floorings reinforcednwith
TUBALL nanotubes stay ahead of the competition
OCSiAl'sntechnologies provide increased yield, performance gains, uniform conductivity and vivid colours. As much as 0.01% of TUBALL single wall carbon nanotubes enables manufacturers to use less raw material while producing more end products with significantly better performance.
TUBALL-based technologies, which are simple and efficient to apply, enable you to produce conductive coloured and transparent coatings in both the dissipative (109-106 Omega·cm) and conductiven(106-104 Omega·cm) ranges, while improving adhesion and abrasion resistance. A loading of just 0.3% of TUBALL MATRIX 302 masterbatch provides coatings with a resistivity of 106 Omega/sq, while reinforcing the structure and minimally impacting the material's colour. OCSiAl has developed more than 40 products for all commonly used coating systems, such as water-based, resin-based, silicone-based and other coatings, and will showcase them at the ECS 2017 in Nuremberg (Germany).

Silane-Terminatedn Polymers for Flexible and Elastic Sealants and Adhesives
At the ECS 2017, Munich-based chemicalngroup WACKER is unveiling two new silane-terminated polymers: GENIOSIL®nXM 20 and GENIOSIL® XM 25. They can be used as binders innadhesives and sealants, where they can modify the mechanical properties, innparticular impacting modulus. This allows adhesives and sealants manufacturers toncompound without the need of conventional plasticizers. In plasticizer-freenadhesives, the new grades additionally enhance the bonding properties. Innlow-modulus sealants, they ensure high elastic recovery. As a result, GENIOSIL®nXM opens up applications in the adhesives and sealants sector that hadnpreviously been unaccessible to silane-crosslinking polymers. The new gradesncomplement the WACKER portfolio of silane-terminated polyethers that have beenndesigned as binders for adhesive and sealant manufacture. They can be blendednwith each other acting either as the main binder or as a co-binder. This allowsnformulators to use the product portfolio like a toolbox to adjust the desirednfinal properties of given products. Both gamma- and alpha-silane-terminatednpolyethers are available.
