Evonik has launched COATINO Campus, a website where its Coating Additives business line offers comprehensive information about additives and formulations.
The new platform includes interactive information on items such as defoamers or matting agents, live events, expert lectures, lab videos, and more. It is free to register and use.
Users can register for different content depending on their level of knowledge and area of interest, Evonik says. Users themselves determine the time and speed in which they want to complete the courses. Upon successful completion of an eLearning course, users also receive certificates to document completion of the course.
“With COATINO Campus, we are further expanding our service offering under the umbrella of COATINO, the dynamic formulation network,” says Gaetano Blanda, head of the business line. “Together with our customers and partners, we are on an exciting journey of discovery with the products of the COATINO family: We are continuously developing new products and services to better support customers in the coatings and printing inks industry in formulating their products.”
In addition to classic eLearning content, the offering also includes approaches for “blended learning,” i.e. the combination of online and offline content, as well as background information on coating technologies, Evonik says. There is also information on every new Coating Additives product allowing users access to the latest product portfolio information.
“COATINO Campus does not, of course, replace support from our coatings experts,” explains Project Manager Susanne Struck. “Rather, the platform enables our customers to educate themselves at any time and additionally seek personal contact with us.”
The COATINO formulation network already includes an AI-supported product recommendation, voice control and a formulation assistant. Additional services are under development.
The knowledge platform is aimed not only at companies in the paints and coatings industry, but also at students and trainees who want to further their education.
