BOYA//PAINT 2006 Congress and Exhibition

BOYA/PAINT 2006 Congress and Exhibition to take Place on 17-19 May Istanbul

First of all, I'd like to take the opportunity to introduce myself. I am Professor Dr. Murat Orbay, the Chairman of Scientific Committee of PAINT 2006 and I want to thank SpecialChem for allowing me to be the "Guest Editor" for today's Bulletin. As you know, Turkey is positioning itself for entry in the European Union and along with that is the exposure and influence that Turkey can offer the world of paint and coating markets. In just eleven years, the interest in coatings events has grown to 136 companies that cover 3,600 square meters of exhibition space. It's hardly believable when you think that we started with in 1995 with only 500 square meters and a modest conference that is organized by the Chamber of Chemical Engineers. Turkey rounds out the Top 20 in terms of the largest economy in the world and has gone to great expense to invest in the infrastructure of the coatings industry.

This year the theme is "Smart Coatings and New Technologies." The 51 oral presentations, including plenary lectures of prominent invited speakers, and will be more than double of that of PAINT 2004. In addition, 17 poster presentations shall also be presented, and participation in both events should be worthwhile and is highly recommended.

I hope to see you there and again, I thank SpecialChem for allowing me to take the "spotlight" in this issue. Now, here is the focus concerning the New Aliphatic Polyisocyanates Center!...

Customers often ask for long pot life to ensure enough flexibility when applying the paint, and at the same time, they want fast-drying film to gain in productivity and avoid dust issues. To meet their customers' expectations, formulators had to find a compromise between these two performances.

Thanks to the development of new solvent-based aliphatic isocyanates, it is now possible to formulate fast curing PU paint with a longer pot life.

Want to learn more about these new solutions at hand-reach? Visit the new Aliphatic Polyisocyanates Center!

To continue, SpecialChem is offering an article that compliments this new Center: Blocked Isocyanates and Their Usage in Plastic Coatings Applications, and don't forget the June 7 e-Training Course on Pigment Dispersion - Part 1.

See our Web site for more information on BOYA 2006:

Best regards and hope to see you there!

Blocked Isocyanates and Their Usage in Plastic Coatings Applications
For some high-performance plastic coatings applications, the 1K coatings do not have the carefully controlled mix ratio requirement or the potlife concerns of 2K polyurethane coatings. Traditionally these requirements can be met through the use of blocked isocyanates. This article discusses some of the results from a current study examining the potential of two developmental blocking agents, diisopropyl amine (DIPA) and t-butyl benzyl amine (BEBA). DIPA and BEBA are compared to the lowest-temperature-curing, urethane-forming, traditional blocking agent, 3,5-dimethyl pyrazole (DMP).
