Regulations and consumer trends continue to spur the demand for coatings and inks with water-based technologies. As the global coatings industry strives to meet this demand, the key to success is delivering high-performance benefits without impacting ease of use or driving up costs. According to Paint & Coatings Industry Magazine, water-based coatings represent a 52% share of the market in terms of volume and 40% of value in 2013.

In addition, the company will display silicone resins and intermediates designed to improve resistance to extreme temperatures, moisture, corrosion, and weathering in high-performance decorative and protective coatings.
