European Coatings Show

ec_coatings_show_largeLI has seen a positive outlook in the coatings sector in recent times. It certainly represents a very important end use for our methacrylates business in EAME, so it was encouraging to see this year’s ECS busy with record numbers of exhibitors and visitors.

We were delighted to meet so many of our customers at the show and to hear that acrylic chemistry remains crucial in the coatings portfolio due to its unique properties, in particular, its UV stabilisation.

LI’s EAME business is keen to work with customers to develop innovative coatings solutions and we found that there was a real appetite for discussion and how to take ideas forward at the show. Environmental legislation, cost pressures and the desire to differentiate products are among the many challenges our customers face and with our focus on the merchant market, we are well placed to support this on-going work. In the up-coming weeks we will be working through follow-up and looking to identify collaborative opportunities with some of those we met. It would be great to hear if you are interested in finding out how we can help your coatings business grow.
