“Improving Product Quality & Cost Economics
in Current Economy”

Asia Pacific continues to promise strong market growth and a leading consumer of coatings, as clearly proved by the swift pace of the region’s economic progress and bolstered construction activities and infrastructure developments. India, Malaysia, Thailand, China, Indonesia, South Korea, and Australia are displaying a very strong growth in coatings demand within the end-user industries of construction and automotive.



Growth witnessed by the paints and coatings industry in the last couple of years has been remarkable in key countries from emerging economies. Industrial development in emerging economies has created greater opportunities for the industry, thus fueling demand for coating products and solutions. Thus investments for localized R&D and coating production have been announced, to enable efficient and faster reaction to customer requirements, and maintain long-term competitiveness in this important sector. 



With the increased awareness of the negative effects of emission from coatings on health and environment, increasingly stringent regulations have been imposed globally. Stricter environmental move towards low or zero VOC regulations, have motivated the green routes in coating formulations, enforcing the transition from various solvent-based paints to water borne coatings. The global market for coatings with low or zero VOC content is forecast to reach $85.7 billion by 2018, spurred by the expansion by major manufacturers in China and India. Concurrently, the “Sustainability” wave or requirement is steering the global coatings industry to be consciously responsible on their solution offerings as well as their production.

Rethink your production process – Highly efficient manufacturing of Paints and Coatings

Posted on : 18 Jul, 2018

https://www.cmtevents.com/EVENTDATAS/180823/picture-for-company-news-on-event-blogNEW.jpgWith a completely different way of production, the process systems of ystral based on the core machine Conti-TDS have started to displace the High Speed Dissolvers in the lacquer, paint and printing ink production.

The results are high quality dispersions and solutions with proven and significant savings in raw material consumption, production time, floor space and energy. For example you can produce 10MT of decorative emulsion at 50% solids in 15 to 30 minutes. For pigment pastes additional bead milling can even be removed completely depending on pigment and formulation.


ystral shares more details about this technology in a session entitled 'Modern & Efficient Processing Equipment for the Coatings Industry' at CMT's 18th Asia Coatings Markets in Jakarta on 01-02 August, 2018.
