Heubach employee wins first Paintindia Award

Dr. Wolfgang Wald, Sales & Marketing Manager Asia-Pacific at Heubach, has received the first PAINTINDIA AWARD, which honours the best paper as part of the PAINTINDIA CONGRESS. Congratulations!

His paper „High-performance non-toxic anticorrosive concepts“ presented formulation options based on non-toxic anticorrosive pigments and combinations with solid organic corrosion inhibitors showing similar or even higher performance compared to toxic chromates. It showed examples of high performance applications like car refinish, coil coating and aircraft primer, covering a wide range of different binder systems and substrates and underlining the performance of these non-toxic alternatives.

PAINTINDIA, the world‘s third largest exhibition for the paints, coatings, links, construction chemicals and adhesives-sealants industries took place from 21 – 23 January 2016 in Mumbai/India. More than 300 exhibitors presented their product ranges, technology innovations and industrial solutions on a surface area of 19.000 square meters to about 17.000 visitors.

In addition, the first PAINTINDIA CONGRESS, offered in conjunction with the exhibition, took place with the objective of providing participants with a deep and comprehensive overview on recent research results and industrial developments in coatings formulations.
