An Itac team comprising Steve Farnworth – Factory Manager, Peter Curtis – Technical Manager, and Tyler Coleman – Development Chemist, had a successful trip to European Coatings Show 2019 in Nuremberg last month.
They met up with existing and potential suppliers to assess new technology and products that could enhance Itac’s ITS Range of Adhesives & Coatings.
Several new polymeric materials and additives were discussed and will now be tested to ascertain their ability to provide performance enhancements to Itac’s range. Keen to stay at the forefront of modern production, the latest Quality Control monitoring systems and Laboratory Equipment were also evaluated.
This year the show had a greater emphasis on renewable and sustainable systems. The team looked at new solvent recovery techniques which could provide a greener solution to mixer cleaning.
