Get Ready: ABRAFATI 2017 Begins Tomorrow

in EXPRESS

by Fabio Humberg

Registrations for the Congress and entries to visit the Exhibition can still be completed online. It’s the last chance to take part in the coatings industry’s top event in Latin America.

 

Leading professionals and companies in the coatings supply chain are going to be at ABRAFATI 2017 from October 03 through 05, at São Paulo Expo. With the central theme of “Adding Value”, it will be an ideal opportunity for acquiring new knowledge, discussing ideas and plans, networking, and closing deals.

Kicking off the program each day, the three Plenary Sessions are ushering in original takes on topics that are key to the coatings supply chain, such as competitiveness, sustainability, and emerging technologies. Those will be followed by 130 studies to be presented at the technical conferences, the Poster Session, and the Radiation Curing Seminar, showing the paths of innovation in paints and coatings.

At the same time as the technical program plays out, 196 of the world’s major suppliers will be showcasing at their booths and commercial lectures in the Product Introduction Area a broad range of solutions and resources that they have available for paint manufacturers to add value to their products.

Among the innovations prepared for this edition are a presentation by Abiquim on responsible consumption and use of solvents, a special gathering targeting paint retailers, and a space set aside for start-ups in the industry.

“The Congress and Exhibition are going to provide a panoramic view of the megatrends dictating the paths for the coatings industry moving forward and the innovations developed with a view to following them,” says Telma Florêncio, director of Corporate Events at ABRAFATI.

Special Presentation Focusing on Responsible Consumption and Use of…

by Fabio Humberg

Topic to be addressed by technical expert from Abiquim.

 

The program for ABRAFATI 2017 is going to be enriched by a special lecture titled “Responsible Consumption and Use of Solvents”. Held in conjunction with the Abiquim (short in Portuguese for Brazilian Chemical Industry Association) Industry-Specific Commission on Solvents for Industrial Purposes, it is taking place on October 4 at 5 pm.

Yáskara Barrilli, adviser on Technical Affairs at Abiquim, is going to be the one demonstrating that the proper use of solvents, adhering to best practices and sustainability policies, represents a great solution, debunking some of the information that gets out on this theme.

Emphasis will be placed on the importance of buying solvent products from reputable companies that meet all of their statutory obligations and provide customers with guidance on how to use them. Other requirements for solvent suppliers include adopting suitable handling procedures, as well as storage and transportation procedures, which should be in accordance with the Responsible Care Program® standards and with regulations from state environmental agencies.

The lecture will reflect the position of the Commission, whose membership comprises Braskem, Dow, Eastman, Elekeiroz, ExxonMobil, Oxiteno, and Rhodia Solvay, focusing on spreading information on the appropriate use of solvents, supporting responsible distribution initiatives, and fostering professionalization in the marketplace.

A.T. Kearney’s Mark Essle to Speak About How to…

in EXPRESS

by Fabio Humberg

The expert from the renowned global consulting firm will show how businesses should prepare and how they can create new opportunities.


The third Plenary Session at ABRAFATI 2017 will be conducted by Mark Essle, partner at A.T. Kearney Brazil. He will address the prospects for the next few years in Brazil, focusing especially on recommendations for businesses to prepare themselves to win in an environment filled with ambiguity and uncertainties.

Using the situation Brazil currently finds itself in as a starting point, he is going to outline scenarios on which to base strategic planning and budgets for 2018, but with important recommendations for any period.

With over 25 years’ proven experience in consulting, having led projects for companies in various economic sectors —including the coatings industry—, Essle is in a unique position to assess the marketplace and point to actions to be taken with a view to avoiding risks and creating opportunities.

He stresses the need for having a vision that is cautious and innovative at the same time. “2018 will be election year, with operation ‘Car Wash’ (Lava Jato) ongoing and a reversal of trends in interest rates, inflation, prices, and exchange rates. Accordingly, the prospects are falling between the extremes, making any planning and forecasting activity twice as hard,” Essle says.

Formulators Get Free Help Understanding Architectural Paint Regulations Around…

in RELEASE EXPOSITOR

by Fabio Humberg

Evolving architectural paint regulations and programs limiting the use and emission of volatile organic compounds (VOC) around the world will be the focus of a webinar hosted this fall by Eastman Chemical Company in conjunction with Paint and Coatings Industry (PCI) Magazine. The free webinar, titled “Puzzled by Global VOC and Emission Changes in Architectural Paints?” will take place Tuesday, October 3, at 2:00 PM EDT. The course will last one hour.

A veteran of the coatings industry will conduct the webinar. Jennifer Cogar is a global application technology leader in architectural coatings at Eastman. Cogar has 30 years of experience in the coatings industry, 17 of which have been spent at Eastman. Her background includes work in a variety of functions, including product development, polymer characterization, technical service, technical marketing, and global marketing.

“We know it’s challenging to manage and implement various regulations,” says Cogar. “This webinar was created to be a resource for formulators who want help understanding current regulatory frameworks across the globe."

Regulations and VOC labeling programs for architectural paint have evolved. Mandatory and voluntary guidelines change at different paces in various regions, making it challenging for formulators to stay current in their knowledge.

This webinar is designed to explain current and potential regulatory changes in North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America. It will also help attendees determine how the regulatory landscape impacts their specific formulations, how to adapt when necessary, and how to minimize reformulation work while still achieving compliance.

To register for the webinar, visit PCI.com. Registering for the webinar enables you to view the video on-demand in the event that you are unable to attend live. There is no cost to register.

Poster Session Enhances Congress Program with Innovative Studies

in EXPRESS

by Fabio Humberg

Innovations in raw materials and processes, focusing on sustainability and performance, are some of the highlighted themes.


Experts with ties to major suppliers to the industry, universities and other institutions will present high-end technical papers at the Poster Session, expanding the supply of quality contents at ABRAFATI 2017 as they add to more than 100 oral presentations as part of the program for the Congress and the Radiation Curing Seminar.

Several papers feature raw materials that are more advanced and from renewable sources, among which attention is drawn by new polymers and corrosion inhibitors, as well as state-of-the-art additives and acrylic emulsions.

A rather vast and varied mix of themes are covered, ranging from weathering resistance testing to colorimetry, to sustainability measurement and assessment methodologies, and to examples of reuse of process waste.

“The Poster Session adds great value to the Congress not only thanks to the quality and relevance of the papers on display, but also for providing opportunities for interaction with their authors. This year it’s taking up a prime area to allow those more interested to access its valuable contents,” says Telma Florêncio, director of Corporate Events at ABRAFATI.
