R&D Awards Include Technology for Coatings Industry

Wednesday, August 19, 2009

Comment | More

Several companies involved with the coatings industry are among the winners of the 47th annual R&D 100 awards for innovative technology, according to www.rdmag.com, the web site of awards sponsor R&D Magazine (Rockaway, NJ).

The awards acknowledge top technology of the year. Editors of R&D and an independent panel of judges select each year’s winners. The following companies and products are among the winners listed and described on www.rdmag.com.

Atlas Material Testing Technology, LLC (Chicago, IL) developed the Ultra-Accelerated Weathering System (UAWS) in partnership with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the Institute of Laser Technology (ILOT). The UAWS tracks the sun while concentrating reflected sunlight on mounted test specimens. The system allows for very high concentrations of UV energy without excessive heating.

PPG Industries (Pittsburgh, PA) was honored for its innovative manufacturing process for powder coatings. The process creates coatings by dispersing the resins, pigments, and other components in water. The new method of mixing and matching color prior to pulverization and application is more accurate and predictable than conventional approaches while also being less time consuming.

The Dow Chemical Company (Freeport, TX) received an R&D 100 award for developing block copolymers that have predictable, controllable chains of blocks that alternate between hard and soft segments. The materials provide improved compression set and elastic recovery properties with the flexibility of polyolefin plastomers and elastomers along with the heat resistance of high-density polyethylene.

All awards will be formally presented at an Awards Banquet in Orlando, FL, slated for November 12.

Published seven times a year, R&D Magazine reports on advances in science and technology, new instruments and techniques for research and development, and trends in research. For more information, visit www.rdmag.com.
