March 28 - April 3, 2011

How do you think the green building movement and LEED Certification have impacted the coatings industry?

Little impact, because EPA and regional air quality management districts have set the pace for low emitting materials.
Moderate impact, because the green building movement has raised the consciousness of coating purchasers about problems of emissions.
Major impact, both through emphasis on low emitting materials and coating contributions to energy efficiency.
Transformational impact, because coatings are now seen as a significant thin-film technology with new multi-functional capabilities developing continuously.
