Why should you view this course?

Recent developments in functional pigments are redefining the role they play in plastics well beyond that of appearance such as process efficiency, waste reduction, sustainability & regulatory compliance! Coupled with improvements in processing technology & thermal stability, pigment developments are making these benefits available over a wider range of polymers (engineering plastics, high heat, bioplastics…).

Join this innovation review to detect new opportunities for yourself ! You will:

  1. Save time with a structured & neutral overview of latest developments in high performance functional pigments (complex color looks, surface texturing effects, plastic waste minimization...)

  2. Speed up your future R&D decisions with a clearer view on material requirements, technology advances & unmet needs

  3. Feed your creativity by seeing successful / promising innovations (combining colors and effects to achieve greater complexity) & understand how it could be applied to your own case.
