The Lubrizol Corp. recently announced it won a Ringier Technology Innovation Award at the 9th annual China Green Coatings Summit, which took place May 15-16 in Shanghai, China. The award was presented to Sanjay Kalhan, Asia-Pacific business manager, Lubrizol Performance Coatings, in a special ceremony. Competing products are judged by a panel of experts from research institutions, the coatings industry and professional associations. Lubrizol’s Carbocure™ 7000, an advanced liquid surface modifier specifically developed to enhance the performance and aesthetics of UV-coated wood products, won the award in the additives category. 

“China is a fast-growing and highly competitive market, and for Carbocure 7000 to be recognized by their experts with this award is quite an honor,” said Kalhan. “At Lubrizol, our scientists constantly use imaginative approaches and technologies to formulate solutions that help coatings manufacturers enhance their products’ capabilities. We’re particularly excited about Carbocure 7000 because it works so well, is easy to use and is an environmentally responsible product. Pre-finished wood products using UV-cured coatings can gain in appearance and surface smoothness with the addition of Carbocure 7000.”
