One-day conference on nano-enabled coatings
27 September 2010
The Nanotechnology Knowledge Transfer Network (NanoKTN) has announced its second coatings focus group event on 21st October 2010 in partnership with the British Coatings Federation (BCF) and the Paint Research Association (PRA). The event will take place at the Nottingham Gateway Hotel and will look at the benefits and potential applications of nanomaterials in inks and coatings.
Nanomaterials are beginning to have a major commercial impact on the coatings industry and the NanoKTN is now working with BCF and PRA to build a UK community where industries can discuss the benefits, as well as the challenges faced by the market. Nano-enhanced materials are rapidly emerging worldwide in every industry imaginable, with key areas including paints and coatings.
Presentations will be delivered by key industry professionals from Netzsch Mastermix Ltd, LVH Ltd, Indestructible Paint Ltd, Intrinsiq Materials, Croda Suncare and Biopolymers, and Sun Chemical. The presentations will provide manufacturers with a better understanding of the potential for the use of nanotechnology and will address concerns about handling and processing of these materials, health and safety issues and possible future legislation.
Complementing the event will be an exhibition showcasing the products and services of companies including Netzsch Mastermix Ltd, Promtek, Lake Chemicals and Minerals Ltd, Buhler, Cornelius, KTA, University of Surrey, CDC Microtron Ltd and LVH Coatings Ltd.
