Feel free to contact Centre Leader, Professor Kim Dam Johansen, email@example.com.
The centre covers coating technologies along the entire value chain from raw materials, over formulation, test and characterization to production and application. In the broad perspective, the centre supports development, production and use of coatings with improved sustainability profiles over the lifetime of the coating.
Coatings are highly complex multicomponent products, which must fulfil many conflicting requirements. Important properties are, for instance, strong adhesion to the substrate or underlying coating layers, adequate viscosity profile, long durability, continuous or durable appealing appearance, and all this at a competitive cost.
Functional coatings, in addition, must provide substrate protection such as resistance against corrosion or biofouling, or provide longer escape times during a fire.
The Hempel Foundation Coatings Science and Technology Centre (CoaST) was established at the Technical University of Denmark, DTU, as per 1 January 2017, based on a generous donation by the Hempel Foundation.
Our aims within the area of sustainable coatings science and engineering are:
