The Coating Additives Laboratory provides full support for customers to achieve maximum efficiency and results from Evonik’s products.
One of the main services we offer is the reproduction of formulations, which aim to provide the best recommendations of additives, resins, co-resins, and silicas for architectural, industrial, automotive paints and printing inks.
To that end, our laboratory has modern equipment, including paint booth, fume hoods to handle chemicals, and a dedicated walk-in hood for UV oven, as well as high-precision equipment such as rheometer, stereo microscope, and spectrophotometer. We also have a test area with natural exposure to weathering, external material warehouse, and actual applied coating products to show applicability, finishing and processing aspects of raw materials.
The Coating Additives Laboratory was integrated to the Crosslinkers laboratory in the same open space concept area to enhances the synergy of activities aimed at the paints and coatings market. Our technical team is well qualified to provide trainings that include solid knowledge about products, regulations, sustainability aspects, and the practice of experiments to reinforce theoretical learnings.
