Chromaflo Technologies, the premier global provider of colorant technology solutions, is pleased to announce that it will be exhibiting at The Western Coatings Show & Symposium, set to take place in Las Vegas, Nevada from October 17-20.
Team members from Chromaflo will be located at Booth #411 where they will be showcasing their new Chroma-Chem® FLV Series – a novel, 100% solids, bio-based colorant technology for the coatings industry.
In addition to the booth exhibit, three of Chromaflo’s team members will be speaking at the event.
“The Use of Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes in Coatings Colorants”
Andrew Bartlett, Coatings Product Development Team Lead, will present “The Use of Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes in Coatings Colorants.”
Carbon nanotubes are a special subset of nanoparticles that contain their own set regulations and difficulties. Chromaflo created single-walled carbon nanotube dispersions (SWNCT) that can be used for coatings and/or colorants in coatings. This takes the potential issues of handling SWCNT out of paint companies’ plants with the replacement of easy-to-use dispersions or colorants that can contain SWCNT. Imagine using an electrostatic dissipative floor coating in colors other than grey and dark grey. Or improving properties such as hardness, chemical resistance, thermal conductivity, electrical conductivity, and impact strength with minimal effect on color. The following presentation discusses the SWCNT dispersions, potential use in colorant dispersions, types of improved gains, advantages, disadvantages, and color sacrifice, if necessary.
Time: 3:45pm – 4:15pm (Champagne 1)
“Efficiency Improvements to R&D Processes Via the Digital Platform”
Jerry Powers, Coatings Technical Director, Americas, will present “Efficiency Improvements to R&D Processes Via the Digital Platform.”
Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) and Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN) are not new technologies to technical labs. Process flow software or Project Management software are not new ideas either. The combined application of these concepts can digitize your coatings lab processes and improve efficiency in your lab. The presentation discusses the digital transformation process at Chromaflo, types of improved gains, types of managerial reports, advantages and disadvantages.
Time: 2:50pm – 3:20pm (Champagne 2)
“Innovative Colorant Technology That Satisfies Dynamic Customer Requirements for Epoxy and Polyurethane Applications with Sustainable, Environmentally Friendly Products”
Presented by Belinda Leonard, Coatings Technical Service Representative, Americas.
Time: 4:00pm – 4:30pm (Champagne 2)
