Marine Coatings Market Analysis, Market Size, Application Analysis, Regional Outlook, Competitive Strategies And Forecasts, 2014 To 2020

There has been an increased focus on the consequences of corrosion and increased demand for better performance from the coatings used for corrosion controls. However, there are few parameters affecting coating applications, such as film thickness, method of application, environmental controls among others. Coating defects during applications (sags, cissing, runs, orange peel, cracking or mud cracking, over thickness, under thickness, grit inclusions, over sprays, human errors), in-service coating failures (shop primer failure, through film breakdowns, weld corrosion, calcareous deposit included coating failures, reverse impact damage, poor surface preparation, stress-related coating failures) are some of the restraints affecting the market. Ability of new...

Emulsion Polymer Market Analysis By Product (Acrylics, Styrene- Butadiene Latex, And Vinyl Acetate Polymers), By Application (Painting & Coating, Adhesives, Paper & Paper Board Coatings) And Segment Forecasts To 2020

July 2014

Increasing environmental concerns and stringent regulations, various restrictions are being imposed on the emission of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These restrictions have obligated the coating manufacturers to articulate coatings with zero or very low VOCs content. It led to initiation of emulsion polymerization into the global market and made its presence over a wide area. Emulsion polymerization technique produces high molecular weight polymers with little viscosity. However polymers can also be tailor made according to the usage, to display the desired morphology and composition. Increasing awareness in end users regarding side...

Powder Coatings Market Analysis By Application (Automotive, Consumer Goods, General Industry, Architectural, Furniture) And Segment Forecasts To 2020

April 2014

Powder coatings, as the name suggest is a form of paint in the powder form. Powder coatings are made by grinding a mixture of resins, pigments and curatives among others to from a powder and are then sprayed onto the surface to be coated. The surface is then heated in an oven which melts the powder, resulting in a smooth even coat. There are various technologies used to spray the powder onto the surface depending on the requirement of the application. Fluidized bed, electrostatic spray, electrostatic fluidized bed and powder curing are the most commonly used methods deployed for powder coatings. Thermosets and thermoplastics are the two...

Antimicrobial Coatings Market Analysis And Segment Forecasts To 2020

April 2014

Antimicrobial coatings are used to protect surfaces from micro-organisms including parasites, bacteria, germs and fungi. Initially introduced to inhibit the effect of micro-organisms in the surfaces to which they were applied to; increasing health concerns regarding the effect of such micro-organisms on human heath, have seen antimicrobial applications cover both human and surfaces. Growth of global medical device coatings market is expected to remain a key demand driver for antimicrobial coatings over the next six years. In addition, increasing market penetration for indoor air quality products is also expected to have a positive impact...

Intumescent Coatings Market Analysis, Market Size, Application Analysis, Regional Outlook, Competitive Strategies And Forecasts, 2014 To 2020

Intumescent coatings are a form of passive fire protection commonly used in the construction industry to increase the fire resistance of structural members, by up to one to three hours, as required by the structural fire design codes. These coatings provide protection owing to their properties of swelling in controlled manner to many times its original thickness with exposure to heat resulting in a carbonaceous char which acts as insulation. They are principally applied to structural elements that typically loose performance during a fire such as steel, wood and aluminium structures. These coatings delay the impact o fire on structural elements by a couple of hours providing time for evacuation and rescue operations.  ...
