How to Speed Up Coatings Formulation R&D with Digital Tools

This is a Past Course

Recorded on May 15, 2019

Go digital to speed-up your R&D process! Set in action digitalized tool for calculation of paint (volume) parameters & adjusting raw material quantities while formulating decorative & industrial coatings.

Industry expert François Magnin will help you get better control over the final paint properties & costs by working in volume vs weight. He will share practical case studies (increasing Pigment Volume Concentration, replacing fillers, changing from bright to satin paint...) to help you accelerate & optimize your formulations with digital tools.

Why should you view this course?

Developing a successful decorative or industrial coatings formulation, requires you to perfectly balance raw material quantities, paint properties (opacity, gloss), and cost. Do you still develop coatings only thinking in weight? Stuck with complicated calculations w.r.t. volume parameters? Don’t waste your precious R&D time - Upgrade to automation! Inculcate the use of digital tools to focus more on the formulation design. Join the course to:

  • Save your R&D time in selecting the right ingredient quantities for your coating process with the help of digitalized tool

  • Gain better control over the final paint properties by working with volume parameters (vs weight) when developing coatings

  • Automate your coating process with digital calculations of volume parameters to allow yourself to focus on the formulation design

  • Save cost as you curb your loading quantities & avoid waste with expert tips
