Cornelius to deliver 'A Breath of Fresh Air' at Surfex 2018

(Posted on 30/04/18)

Cornelius, an independent European manufacturer and distributor of high performance chemicals for the industrial manufacturing sector, will address the growing demand for environmentally friendly paints and coatings at the forthcoming Surfex 2018 exhibition.

Taking place on 22nd – 23rd May at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, Surfex 2018 will showcase the latest innovation, development, manufacture and supply of coatings, inks and adhesives. 

During the two-day event, Cornelius will discuss the latest ‘green’ product developments and showcase recent innovations from four of its strategic partners: Elementis Specialties, Venator, Synthomer and Tronox.

Jason Fitzgerald, Business Manager of Cornelius Performance Chemicals, said: “Driven by consumer demand and regulatory changes, paint and coating formulators have brought to the forefront products with improved environmental performance. These products are now a must within the paints and coatings industry.”

The global ‘eco’ coatings market is estimated to reach $85.7 billion this year, according to MarketsandMarkets, a global market research company. The high demand across industries such as decorative, packaging and product finishes will increase overall materials consumption. 

Fitzgerald continued: “In my opinion, the coatings industry is fully prepared when it comes to offering the market environmentally-friendly alternatives. In many products, VOCs have been reduced with numerous manufacturers also removing odours and pollutants. Paints and coatings manufacturers are clearly formulating products with the environment front of mind.

“At Surfex 2018, Cornelius and its partners will showcase the latest product offerings. In addition, members of the Cornelius Performance Chemicals team will be on hand to discuss formulation requirements, provide technical guidance and offer support on up and coming regulatory changes.”
