EXTON, Pa., February 1, 2017 - Hongli Wang, Ph.D., Senior Technical Development Engineer with AGC Chemicals Americas Inc., will present on value-added FEVE formulations for high performance powder coatings at the 2017 Waterborne Symposium. Dr. Wang will discuss the exceptional weatherability, corrosion and chemical resistance and environmental benefits of FEVE resin-based powder coatings. AGC’s LUMIFLON® FEVE powder coating resins do not require a solvent (VOC) and can be used in formulations to meet the AAMA 2605 specification for high-performance exterior architectural coatings. In addition, AGCCA will showcase its environmentally friendly waterborne, powder and flake LUMIFLON FEVE resin grades at booth 206. These high performance FEVE resins can be used for various applications including aluminum extrusions for curtain walls and protection of steel bridges. “Our new powder coating developments focus on creating value by lowering cost, improving coating flexibility and surface quality, controlling coating gloss and producing new formulations to meet customers’ needs,” Dr. Wang said.

Coronavirus Impact on Fine Chemical Supply Chain

Article | March 6, 2020

Coronavirus, more accurately referred to as COVID-19, is beginning to impact global supply chains in a tangible way. Although it is impossible to forecast the effect of numerous epidemics worldwide on the fine chemical supply chain specifically, reports suggest that as much as 94% of the Fortune 1000 are already experiencing coronavirus-related supply disruptions. Fortune cites the devastating 2011 tsunami as a case study of how unforeseeable disasters can severely disturb supply chains with far-reaching ramifications. Damage to Mitsubishi Gas Chemical factories in the area affected by the tsunami led to a shortage of bismaleimide triazine (BT) resin; a critical material for electronic substrates.

What are Fine Chemicals & Why you should Outsource its Production

Article | March 25, 2020

Fine chemicals are those which are produced with a very high standard of purity and are intended for use in specialized applications. If you are starting a new company or investing into the development phase of a new product, outsourcing the production really makes good sense. This safeguards you and your business from the financial losses suffered out of halting the production of a product unevenly. A single substance created with the assistance of chemical reactions, which is additionally integrated into highly evolved applications is called a fine chemical. In contrast to bulk chemicals that are produced in large quantities, fine chemicals are produced in small batches because of their specialized nature. They are mainly used as starting materials for pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals & biopharmaceuticals.

More data show how far we still have to go to solve the climate and plastic waste crises

Article | June 27, 2021

SEE THE END section of this blog post for a dystopian version of our environmental future. In a follow-up post – which I will publish on Thursday, 1 July – I will offer some suggestions about how we can avoid an outcome that nobody of course wants.Both posts are meant to be provocative, challenging and controversial because only through debate, and sometimes outright argument, will we get to the answers. If you disagree after either or both posts have been published, great, that would be good. In fact, I would love to hear from you whatever your views at john.richardson@icis.com. The petrochemicals industry can do this; we can fix this if we create the right forums for ideas and then solutions. Let me provide the background first. Let me start by examining developments in the refinery industry and the implications for petrochemicals as important background. Then I will look at a sample of ICIS petrochemicals demand growth forecasts for 2020-2040. I will conclude by providing the bleakest of bleak outcomes for the world in 2025

What the Coronavirus could mean for the global petrochemical industry?

Article | March 10, 2020

Coronavirus (covid-19) has developed rapidly and is already impacting significant parts of the global economy. Within this context the petrochemical industry is also being severely affected through short-term market uncertainties, pricing volatility and declining consumption in many of its key segments. The most visible outcome is emanating from China where economic activity has declined sharply in February and is forecast to remain low over the next few months. The effect of China’s economic slowdown is now resulting in consequences in other regions – “when china sneezes, the whole world catches a cold”.
