SSME expands paint technical centre capabilities

 

Sibelco Specialty Minerals Europe recently expanded the capabilities in its Technical Application Centre.

The lab is located in Maastricht at the Sibelco Europe MineralsPlus site, and is now working on the full product portfolio of the group. This includes amongst others silicas, barite, talc, nepheline syenite and aluminium oxide.

The centre employs 2 FTE’s and is also supported by the analytical labs in the Sibelco group.

New capabilities include improved dispersion technologies and weathering tests for decorative coatings. In collaboration with other Sibelco group labs, the lab also performs anticorrosion testing.

The expansion will improve assistance for customers in their paint developments, and build specific expertise in filler related issues such as viscosity, durability and optical properties.

The paint types investigated include mainly decorative paint, wood paint, and anticorrosion paint.
