Seven historic military tanks were restored for the National Armor and Cavalry Heritage Foundation. The restored tanks will be displayed on a walking trail, on land given by the United States Army for a new National Armor and Cavalry Museum. Working under the leadership of Vulcan Painters, Inc. companies across the country participated in an industry wide volunteer effort to restore the tanks. Steve Krolak of Mohawk Garnet Inc helped set up the abrasive cleaning operation. Of the seven tanks to be painted, two tanks, the M60A3 Patton main battle tank and the Sheridan M551, received a camouflage pattern in a flat finish using the Federal Standard 595C color system and applied in the Woodland camouflage pattern. Thomas Industrial Coatings? crew arrived to paint the M113 Armored Personnel Carrier. The crew from Coatings Unlimited pressure washed the M3 Bradley fighting vehicle, sanding and power tool cleaning.

Various presentations made at the 2011 European Coatings Show (ECS) in Nuremberg and the 2012 American Coatings Show (ACS) in Indiapolis are discussed. 'Sustainable Chemistry: a key technology for the 21st Century' stressed that despite important methodological advances in all areas of chemistry, the industrial production of chemicals can be improved. 'A new generation of green binders' addressed a sustainable product in terms of its deviation from renewable resources and its overall carbon footprint. 'Bio-based coatings technology: collaborative research with supply chain partners' described how the high cost and uncertain availability of petroleum-based raw materials make developing renewable, sustainable raw material sources a priority'. 'Use of bio-based polyol for low VOC solvent-borne 2K polyurethane coatings' described poly(trimethylene ether), a new ingredient made form a corn-derived material, 1,3-propanediol, to replace a petroleum-based ingredient.

The emphasis of the products being exhibited and technologies presented was on their environmentally friendliness, with materials for waterborne systems predominating. Companies were also keen to explain their desire to use renewable ingredients as their raw material sources and their efforts in reducing the carbon footprint of their production facilities. © Copyright 2000-2011, Technology Publishing / PaintSquare.

The European Coating Show (ECS) was held in Nuremberg, Germany from 21-23, May 2015. The ECS attracted delegates from 42 countries, yielding 144 presentations by scientists and researchers focused on the production of high-quality coatings, paints, sealants, construction chemicals, and adhesives. Products and presentations "showed the diverse requirements met by modern coatings solutions: functional, safe, environmentally friendly, and firmly committed to the idea of sustainability as bio-based products.

Joe Maty of JPCL mentions the profile of top contractors, as measured by revenues from painting and related activities such as the Brock Group adopted a project manager approach to the business, where company representatives took on greater responsibility in the planning and execution of painting and related activities at customer sites. Mobley Industrial Services offers a range of services that includes coatings and linings, control of corrosion under insulation and fireproofing, grounds maintenance, insulation, lead and asbestos abatement, scaffolding, and asset management. Park Derochie Coatings Limited expands its business and diversifies into bridge painting activities and has opened an office in Saskatchewan, where the potash mining industry offers potential for additional growth. Parker Kaefer Incorporation primarily engaged in the insulation business and also includes various business units that work in the painting, scaffolding, passive fire protection, lead abatement, and asbestos-abatement fields.

The 18th International Conference on Pipeline Protection, organized by the BHR Group, was held in Belgium on November 4-6, 2009. More than 20 presentations were given, with fusion-bonded epoxy (FBE) coatings being the primary technology discussed in papers covering different aspects of the effect of temperature on the application of FBE powders. G. Gaillard and J.L. Bouliez, of BS Coatings, discussed the long-term anticorrosion protection of buried pipelines is linked to the good barrier properties of the coating. J.K. Pratt and M.L. Mallozzi of the 3M Company discussed the development of an FBE coating that could be either a stand-alone coating or a primer in a multi-layer system. A. Hussain and C. Pflugbeil, Comtech GmbH, described the findings of an analytical study of three-layer polyethylene coatings with emphasis on the FBE primer/substrate interface. D. Tailor and E. Tacoma of Canusa-CPS reviewed the recent installation of a 24-inch gas pipeline across the Mediterranean Sea.

Exhibitors participating in the European and US conferences and exhibitions demonstrated routes taken to reduce volatile organic compounds (VOC) in polyurethanes (PU). Perstorp introduced the new Easaqua™ X L 600 modified polyisocyanate to meet the demands of coating producers for waterborne PU technology that offered high humidity resistance. The new product helped to meet the market's need for low VOC systems with the balance between low viscosity and high NCO content. It also improved coating adhesion on a wide range of substrates, demonstrating that it was specifically suitable for direct-to-metal (DTM) applications. Croda Coatings & Polymers also displayed its bio-based polyester polyols for high-performance waterbornes to meet the rapidly growing market for aqueous PU dispersions. Incorez demonstrated the practical use of oxazolidines by case studies showing the enhanced performance of one-pack PU flooring systems and improved performance of aromatic PU sealant pre-polymers using oxazolidine hardeners.

Producing surfaces with high resistance over time is the backbone of most hull-coating systems, and a high level of barnacle protection is key to a successful antifouling paint. These coating systems have the potential to save thousands of dollars in fuel consumed per day for a midsized vessel, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions as an increasingly important operational requirement. All paint manufacturers offer a range of such antifouling hull coatings, including the high-performance systems.
