Between 2016 and 2040 the infrastructure spending outlook is estimated to be 94 trillion USD, averaging 3.7 trillion USD per year 1.
In 2020, 2,551 infrastructure projects were announced, totalling 739 billion USD. In order North America (22.67%), Western Europe (18.40%), Southeast Asia (11.92), South America (7.89%), and Australasia (7.35%)2.
In the United States, the US Government has introduced a ‘build back scheme’ of more than 1 trillion USD at the end of 20213. In Asia, a similar trend has been observed with the Malaysian government announcing its RM260 billion People-Centric Economic Stimulus Package (PRIHATIN) in March 20204.
The increased infrastructure spending will further drive the demand for coatings.
Faster batch processing time by using:
● Pre-dispersed fumed silica
● Liquid Thixotropes
Reduce layers per application process by:
Faster drying speed of each layer by using:
Discover what technologies to use and what tests we run at our laboratories to create fast formulations.
Switching from standard pigments to Stir-in Pigment Preparations to have easier incorporation and shorter and less intensive dispersion process with a high degree of flexibility and without undesired formulation raw materials.Learn more
Switching from powder Fumed Silica to pre-dispersed Fumed Silica for much easier handling and without the need to pre-disperse the silica beforehand and thus to save time and energy in production.Learn more
Switch from alkyd resins or acrylic emulsions to solvent-free silane modified polymers to achieve faster curing and better mechanical, chemical and corrosion resistance in 1K air drying industrial coatings.Learn more
Using special epoxy curing agents for fast curing and at the same time better chemical resistance for industrial and floor coatings.Learn more
Switching from 2K polyurethane topcoats to fast curing polyaspartics with very high solids content to reduce the number of coats needed while maintaining corrosion resistance, reducing VOC and increasing drying speed.Learn more
Moving from an amine-based curing agent to epoxy-siloxane helps reducing the number of coats needed while maintaining high corrosion resistance and outstanding weathering stability.Learn more
Changing your formulation might mean encountering some roadblocks on the way. Take the time to learn how to crack the code of your coatings formulation and get your questions with our recorded webinar!
Increase the curing speed to achieve faster return to service, outdoor or stack storage without damage.
Use the right technology and increase the curing speed by reducing the energy required.
Incorporate easier and reduce post batch adjustment to achieve output increase and energy saving.
Reduce the number of layers necessary to achieve the right performance. Save time and money in your coating application.
