Coatings & Construction Technical Center
Our target is to provide an exceptional support to our customers which is far beyond the borders of standard commercial relationship.
The extended technical support will now also assist our customers in the paints and coatings sector to develop new products and applications for the regional markets with regard to locally available raw materials and environmental conditions according to their special needs.
The laboratory is fascinated for interior-, exterior and coatings applications, offers application technology and test equipment for polymer dispersions needed as binders forinterior architectural paints. The investment not only enables us to Support our Customers from Hungary, but also from Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia and Ukraine, servingas a Regional Center.This Expansion clearly shows that Brenntag believes the depression of Coating & ConstructionIndustry in the region will end in the near future, so the company will be well prepared not only to follow the market in the better times, but to indicate the development of the segment.
Possible measurements in the Coating and Construction Application Lab include the examination of raw materials, pigments and extenders; the analysis of ready mixed products like cement based products, plasters, paintings and the examination of hardened products. Besides investigating materials, we are able to support building up a whole new formulation or improving an existing recipe or even changing certain ingredients.
Our spectrophotometer enables us to do quick and accurate color analysis. Multiple color standards can be used, and whiteness and yellowness is also measurable according to the appropriate ASTM and ISO standards. Several illumination methods can be applied. The related software makes it possible to prepare own colordatabase and to optimize formulations. The unique database built manages both color and opacity. It reduces color formulation cost by determining the best formula based on selected parameters ,andit saves considerable time too. Our weathering instrument is designed for economical weathering testing, and also testing the resistance to UV, temperature and moisture can be determined too. We can measure the adhesion of coatings to metal, concrete and other substrates.
