CFCM Nouryon Bermocoll FLOW 400Nouryon has launched Bermocoll FLOW cellulose ether, a new product that combines the flow and levelling properties of an associative synthetic thickener with the stability properties of a cellulose thickener. Bermocoll FLOW, Nouryon says, delivers an optimal balance of sag resistance and levelling along with improved spatter resistance and hiding compared to paint systems made with standard thickeners. Moreover, the product is soluble in water, and well-suited for low volatile organic compound (VOC) paint formulations and airless spray applications. This makes it a natural, more sustainable alternative for both interior and exterior decorative paints.

“The versatility of Bermocoll FLOW allows our customers to achieve an optimal paint rheology profile while eliminating the need for complex paint thickener systems,” said Rob Vancko, vice-president paints & coatings at Nouryon. “Our new technology enhances application and finished paint properties while providing sustainability benefits and a low carbon footprint for our customers.”

As an alternative to associative synthetic thickeners for rheology control of decorative paints, Bermocoll FLOW can deliver little to no spatter through proper flow behaviour. This new type of hydrophobically (water-soluble) modified cellulose ether bridges the gap in thickeners, thus creating a product that goes on smoother with less sagging in both interior and exterior decorative paints.

CFCM slingpsychrometer 400Paul N. Gardner USA, global distributors, producers, and designers of quality physical and inspection instruments for the paint, coatings, and related industries, has introduced a new offering: The compact, portable Sling Psychrometer.

As an easy way to measure relative humidity levels quickly, this uniquely compact Bacharach Sling Psychrometer accurately determines per cent relative humidity without the necessity of consulting complex tables. There is no need to wet the wick each time a reading is taken, and it contains a slide rule calculator which correlates wet and dry bulb thermometer indications for direct reading of relative humidity. When not in use, the thermometer case telescopes into the handle for protection.

The Sling Psychrometer consists of two thermometers that are turned by vigorously swinging the handle and exposing the thermometers to rapid air movement. These two thermometers are called dry bulb and wet bulb. The bulb of one thermometer is placed in direct contact with the room air to measure dry-bulb air temperature. The bulb of the other thermometer is covered with a silk or muslin sleeve that is kept moist to record the wet bulb temperature. Evaporation cools the wet bulb more than the dry bulb, and the humidity is obtained as a function of change in temperature. The atmospheric humidity is determined by calculations, steam tables, or using a psychrometric chart. Gardco.com
