Coatings

An appealing and promising exterior: coatings provide just that – and more, if they are more than mere disguise. They can improve the physical, electrical or chemical properties of surfaces. Formulators are constantly on the lookout for ways to optimise them, often using innovative analysis techniques, knowing that the outer values can matter as much as the inner values.

The Chemistry of an Electric Guitar

Electric guitars, on the face of it, might not seem to have much to do with chemistry. However, the materials that make them up are carefully chosen for their chemical properties, without which they simply wouldn’t function. In this graphic, we take a look at some of these materials, and their typic more
