Evonik at the 2009 Latin American Coatings Show

Latin America’s biggest tradeshow for coatings is due to be held in Mexico City on July 15th and 16th. Evonik will be represented with a booth at the show, where it will showcase new products.

Besides our broad product range we would like to draw your attention to the following innovations:

  • The first grades of the newly developed INXEL™ pigment preparations for water based coating systems.
  • COLOUR BLACK FW 171, a carbon black pigment with extraordinarily fine particle size and very narrow particle-size distribution. It is used primarily in high-end industries, such as the automotive sector.
  • DYNAPOL® LH 318-02, a new saturated polyester resin for interior can coatings for food contact applications. The specially modified, medium molecular weight polyester resin shows very low migration levels and is characterized by high solids content and excellent flexibility and adhesion properties.
  • A range of new Tego products, among them TEGO® Airex 944, a powerful deaerator for use in emission-free floor coatings.

In addition to such product presentations, Evonik will hold two lectures which will provide insight into its coatings business. The first, entitled “Mechanisms for combating macro and microfoam on low VOC waterborne systems”, will be held by Ira Stockstill from Evonik Goldschmidt GmbH on July 15th. Dr. Ingo Stohrer, Evonik Degussa GmbH, will hold the second lecture on “DYNAPOL® & VESTICOAT® UB for coil & can coatings” on July 16th.

The Latin American Coatings Show takes place every two years at the World Trade Center in Mexico City. Evonik will be located at booth no. 47th.
