Azelis opens a new Coatings Applications Laboratory in Sankt Augustin, Germany
26 September 2013
The new applications laboratory enables Azelis Coatings to enhance technical support and offers its customers and principals access to a key centre of excellence, driven by market focused expertise.
Azelis represents many world leading Coatings manufacturers and the expert Lab team aims to incorporate their high performance raw materials into guideline formulations that preview the latest trends and processing techniques.
Additionally, work with customers and principals on specific confidential projects will enhance in depth sales support and technical advice for our partners.
Primarily, guideline formulations will centre round water based systems such as façade and interior wall paints, wood lacquers and pigmented primers.
Operating under strict protocols, testing services will include; the measurement of particle fineness, foaming and de-foaming properties, adhesion, washability resistance, gloss reflection and surface properties by microscopic analysis, as well as the characterisation of raw materials and formulated compounds.
“This new laboratory extends Azelis’ ability to provide expertise, formulation advice and access to an extensive range of raw materials for Coatings applications via a tailored service for our partners,” explains Michel Dumusois, International Business Director Azelis. “We will also hold regular onsite training days and visits to increase product and compounding knowledge.”
