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.

New Digital Solution Helps Customers Bring Colours to Life

AkzoNobel 3D colour visualization tool
AkzoNobel Powder Coatings has developed a new web application 3D colour visualization tool within its Interpon webshop to help customers better understand how a powder coating’s colour, texture and finish that look good in theory, will actually appear in reality. 

The tool provides instant access to thousands of colours in the Interpon range. Using a 360-degree dynamic camera and simulated lighting, the customer is given a true-to-life image of how the colour performs to a degree of accuracy and realism not possible before in a virtual environment.  

Rather than the image being ‘flat’, the customer can orientate the ‘virtual’ panel to see how the light reflects and the colour looks from different angles.
