FLORHAM PARK, NJ -- BASF will present sustainable solutions that can help formulators of coatings for architectural, industrial, and automotive applications make their products better - and be more successful - at the American Coatings Conference and Show, June 2-5, at the Charlotte Convention Center in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Visitors to BASF booth will be able to learn about the ingredients, chemistry and know-how they need to develop new products that meet their business needs and help protect the environment. This includes specific solutions for current needs such as:

  • low to zero-volatile organic compound (VOC) coatings,
  • alkylphenol ethoxylate (APEO)-free coatings,
  • high-performance coatings, and,
  • "cooler" solutions for heat management.

BASF will deliver four of the 72 high-level technical paper presentations during the American Coatings Conference. According to the conference sponsors, these presentations were chosen from more than 170 submissions, based on "the potential of the contributions to add value to the industry." BASF speakers and their topics are:

  • David Story, Technical Manager, "It's a 'Cool,' Cruel, World. Succeed Through IR Reflective Coating Technology in a Challenging Marketplace,"
  • Nilanjan Chakrabarti, Development Leader, "New Advances on an Old Technology,"
  • Lee Young, Technical Services Manager, "Hybrid Pigments-What is the Difference and Why Do We Need Them," and,
  • Nick Gruber, Innovation Manager and Senior Technical Marketing Manager, "Speed Up Your Coating Development: High Throughput Screening for Low VOC Coatings."

Gregory Turco, Technical Manager, will present a poster titled "Functional Acrylic-Epoxy Resins Lead to Improved Epoxy-Amine Coatings Systems."

BASF experts will be available throughout the show to discuss how the company's broad portfolio of resins, binders, latex, pigments and effect pigments, colorants, specialty additives and minerals, and systems meet specific applications and customer needs.
