The British Coatings Federation (BCF) are driving the technical agenda for the coatings industry; part of that agenda has to cover the raw materials used within the coatings industry. The next generation of raw materials looks towards a sustainable future. It helps the industry to identify ways in which manufacturers can produce safer, greener paint products.
Minerals solutions for coatings industry
LKAB Minerals presented natural minerals solutions on a table top exhibition to the 40+ delegates at the conference. Our Coating Technical Sales Manager Mark Smit highlighted our natural halogen free fire retardant mineral product UltraCarb. The coatings industry uses our minerals solutions in diverse ways. This consequently led us to meet many interesting parties. Ray Bent, for example, talked decorative effects using DekorFlake for automotive coatings. Meanwhile Mark spoke about lubricity requirements. In addition Seleena highlighted the natural iron oxide product MagniF. Our mineral which has inherent ferri-magnetic properties, and the industry therefore uses in magnetic paint.
It was a pleasure to be part of the forward thinking conference. Furthermore it allowed us to showcase our sustainable mineral solutions to the British coatings industry.
