AkzoNobelAs global demand for electric vehicles and e-mobility continues to accelerate, AkzoNobel says its powder coatings business will answer the growing needs of its customers by developing technologies to help power the industry into the future.

Manufacturers of electric vehicles and components want solutions to help protect motors, battery system and electrical storage units, and the company can now offer a dedicated powder coatings portfolio, alongside a team of technical specialists to provide expert assistance, AkzoNobel says.

“Thanks to our renowned Resicoat brand, we have more than 50 years of experience in offering tried, tested and proven performance for a wide range of electrical insulation and high-temperature solutions,” says Daniela Vlad, Director of AkzoNobel Powder Coatings. “Building on that global track record, we’re now taking our innovation even further to help power up the next generation of e-mobility through both our Resicoat and Interpon brands.”

The company’s powder coatings are already used on car bodies, interiors and alloy wheels. The emergence and rapid growth of e-mobility now presents new opportunities for the company to help batteries last longer and vehicles drive further.

Research suggests that the global electric vehicles market will be worth around $700 billion by 2026, up from $140 billion in 2019, meaning AkzoNobel can help guide the industry on its way by continuing to innovate and providing more sustainable solutions for customers, the company says.

“We want to help transform the e-mobility market through our pioneering approach and longstanding commitment to technical excellence,” says Vlad. “We have all the experience and expertise necessary to support the innovators of the next generation technologies that will be used in the world’s most advanced electric vehicles. You could say we’re driving the current to power the future.”

New Bacharach Sling Psychrometer


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
