Excerpts from the article:
Held in partnership with the American Coatings Association (ACA) and Vincentz Network – the organizer of the European Coatings Show and Conference – the American Coatings Show and Conference (ACS/ACC) is an exhibition and technical conference designed as a sister event to the European event. The ACS provides a marketplace for presentation of products and services for the production of high-grade and competitive paint and coatings.
There are many reasons for suppliers to the paint and coatings industry to exhibit at the ACS. Companies Coatings World interviewed cited the opportunity to meet with key customers in one setting as a major benefit.
“The greatest benefit of exhibiting at a show like ACS is the exposure you receive across the large platform of different market segments in the coatings arena,” said Craig Collins, North America sales manager at Shamrock Technologies. “This gives a company like Shamrock the opportunity to reach everyone from our long term partners to new emerging technology based companies that are just entering their partnering phase. 2016 is Shamrock Technologies’ 75th year anniversary. This is a celebration of the past, plus the beginning of the road map for our next 75 years.”
Shamrock Technologies are world leaders in PTFE micropowders. “We will always stay true to our core and focus on new innovative PTFE micro powders,” said Collins. “We have developed new water wettable PTFE micropowders that now have a greater affinity to water and solvent borne system. Outside of the surface modification developments, we have developed New Nano based PTFE dispersions for thin film systems in water, solvent and oils.”
