For many, it’s the Holy Grail of coatings: formulating a paint that doesn’t sacrifice aesthetics for durability. On Wednesday, April 11, 2018 at 9:30 a.m. during the American Coatings Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana, Dr. Jamie Dziczkowski will share details about how a team of scientists developed Eastman Tetrashield™ protective resin systems, a groundbreaking technology for coatings that enables superior weathering and chemical resistance while balancing hardness and flexibility.

Capitalize Versatility of Specialty Polyol

During the 30-minute presentation entitled “A versatile, high-performance polyol chemistry for broad industrial market use,” Dr. Dziczkowski will also examine ways to capitalize on the versatility of the specialty polyol platform of resins to fulfill performance targets across very diverse fitness for use criterion.

Dr. Deep Bhattacharya, Eastman Technology Director for Coatings, said:

“Our team has overcome the traditional limitations of polyester technology and leveraged the use of a specialty monomer from one of our uniquely differentiated technology platforms. What we discovered is the next generation of polyol chemistry for coatings applications that can deliver superior durability through improvements in weathering, UV stability, and scratch and mark resistance. More importantly we are enabling a much more sustainable footprint for the coatings value chain.”

Benefits of Improved Tetrashield

Through performance comparisons to next best alternative technologies, Dr. Dziczkowski’s presentation will highlight the advantages and protection that come from the improved durability of Tetrashield. At the conclusion of the presentation, there will be time for questions from the audience. There will also be metal panels on hand to allow formulators to put Tetrashield to the test by scratching a key across the painted surface. With this demonstration, it’s easy to see the superior durability of a Tetrashield-based coating compared to a commercial paint.

Learn More About Tetrashield

Attendees can learn more about Tetrashield by visiting Eastman booth #1885 during the American Coatings Show. Eastman technology experts will be on hand to share comparative data about the weatherability, hardness, and chemical resistance of this exciting new technology. There will also be painted panels at the booth where visitors can test the durability of Tetrashield. Tetrashield technology is available for multiple markets including automotive, industrial, and metal packaging.
