Nanotechnology and the Coatings Industry 2013

This conference, now in its fourth year, will provide insights into new nanomaterial developments and novel process routes, both to the manufacture of nanomaterials and the conversion of these nanomaterials into commercial formulations.

Nanotechnology based coating products have shown remarkable growth in recent years with BCC Research reporting in January 2010 that the nanotechnology based coatings market was nearly $2.9Bn in 2009 and that it was projected to grow to $17.9Bn in 2015, a compound annual growth rate of 39.5%.

Together, the NanoKTN, British Coatings Federation (BCF) and the Paint Research Association (PRA), have mirrored this significant growth with a series of annual conferences.

This conference, now in its fourth year, will provide insights into new nanomaterial developments and novel process routes, both to the manufacture of nanomaterials and the conversion of these nanomaterials into commercial formulations. It will also have speakers describing new and exciting products across a wide range of coatings applications. In addition, there will be talks on characterisation techniques and the current status on regulatory issues.
