Clariant Coating At the European Coatings Show 2023, Clariant will be offering visitors materials and support to simplify complexities and aid in the development of more sustainable and effective paint, coating and ink formulations. Show attendees can explore a wide range of customer-focused solutions focused on today’s challenges of minimizing footprint and maximizing product performance.
“Sustainability in the coatings industry spans many aspects. Improving process efficiency, conserving energy and resources, the use of renewable raw materials, finding alternative ingredients to ultimately create safer products with effective performance but less of an environmental impact,” says Martin John, global vice-president of segment coatings and adhesives, Clariant. “We see navigating these challenges as a collaborative journey for the value chain, and we’re working with customers across the segments, from functional coatings for food packaging to printing inks to industrial and architectural coatings, to connect needs to protect durability or advance specific functionality more closely to greater sustainability.”
Clariant’s specific on-show launches are under wraps until March 28, however, look out for innovation in the areas of label-free durability- and function-boosting additives, product selection support, and bio-based processing aids.

More sustainable material choices for functional coatings:

  • Replace “forever chemicals” in printing inks and packaging barrier coatings. Manufacturers can look beyond PTFE with Clariant’s Ceridust additives that offer scratch-resistant protection for packaging barrier coatings with good slip-effect and rub-resistant printing inks. Clariant’s PTFE-free solutions include polyethylene waxes and a bio-based wax blend all with proven success in replacing PE/PTFE additives.
  • Choose halogen-free, low dosage flame retardants to advance the fire protection and safety of intumescent coatings for load-bearing construction applications. Clariant turns the spotlight on two of its EcoTain sustainability label innovations. Exolit AP 435, which can prolong the shelf life of finished products during storage and transportation, and Exolit AP 418, a star in supporting “less is more” and reducing the industry’s material use. It achieves up to 10 per cent longer fire-resistant time for a film applied at up to 25 per cent less thickness.
