Huntsman to showcase sustainable technologies at MECS
Feb '08
Building on its success at the 2006 Middle East Coatings Show (MECS), Huntsman is returning to the largest dedicated coatings event for the Middle East and Gulf region to showcase latest innovations from its comprehensive range of coatings, paint, ink and adhesive solutions.

The Middle East Coatings Show 2008 will take place during March 10 to 12, 2008 at Dubai World Trade Centre, UAE.

During the three-day event, four different Huntsman divisions will demonstrate their technical and commercial expertise focusing on core products that employ epoxy, methacrylate, polyurethane, polyurea, amines, alkylene carbonates, dispersants, surfactants and titanium dioxide chemistries. Particular emphasis will be given to Huntsman's environmentally-friendly coating formulations and the benefits they can offer customers in the Middle East.

Representatives from Huntsman Advanced Materials will be on hand to discuss the division's continued development of sustainable technologies, which have been designed to meet current and future environmental regulations relating to the use of volatile organic compounds (VOC) in coating products.

Products on display will include waterborne, high solids, solvent-free and powder technologies, all of which are suitable for use in architecture, marine, transportation, adhesives, coatings and elastomers, and heavy-duty industries. A paper on waterborne and high solid primer systems will also be given at the Exhibitor Business Presentation sessions.

Huntsman Polyurethanes will use the event to highlight its ongoing partnership with Alberdingk Boley, one of Europe's leading producers of water-based systems for coatings. Officially launched at ECS 2007, the alliance aims to bring a new level of innovation to the global flooring market with the introduction of new concepts for two-pack, VOC-free coatings.

Based on Huntsman Polyurethanes' advanced MDI-technology and Alberdingk Boley's Albodur 912 VP polyols, the resulting product enables the creation of bespoke, high performance flooring solutions that meet increasingly stringent VOC legislation.
