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.
