Journal of Coatings Technology and Research Features Bio-based Epoxy Resins Research Topics

Published on 2013-09-12. Author : SpecialChem

The September issue of Journal of Coatings Technology and Research (Vol. 10, No. 5, 2013) features a wide range of topics of interest to the coatings community. The issue begins with a report on bio-based epoxy resins. According to the authors of the article, natural oils, such as soybean oils, are emerging as promising alternatives to petrochemicals in the coatings industry. As renewable resources, they increase the overall sustainability of the coating system and can be found in plentiful supply. Yet limitations in performance have prevented the widespread use of natural oils. Recent research on epoxy-anhydride thermosetting polymers, however, has shown that a renewable resource based on a 100 percent bio-based sucrose ester of soybean oil (sucrose soyate) can offer superior performance when compared to certain petrochemical-based systems.

This report and additional articles in the issue include the following:

About American Coatings Association

The American Coatings Association (ACA) is an established organization with a renewed mission. In 2010, the organization took the name ACA in recognition of its new identity as an association that represents both companies and professionals working in the paint and coatings industry.

ACA is a voluntary, nonprofit organization working to advance the needs of the paint and coatings industry and the professionals who work in it. Through advocacy of the industry and its positions on legislative, regulatory, and judicial issues at the federal, state and local levels, it acts as an effective ally ensuring that the industry is represented and fairly considered. The association also devotes itself to advancing industry efforts with regard to product stewardship, through its signature Coating Care® resources, and focuses on advancements in science and technology through its technical conferences and journals, as well as online training opportunities. In addition, ACA offers essential business information to members through its publications, surveys, and business programs.
