Bill Coggio, PhD, Global AETS Manager, BioAmber, presenting at the 2013 CASE Study Conference

December 6, 2013
The production of coatings, adhesive, sealants and elastomers based on polyurethane and polyurea chemistry is, understandably, one of the most diverse applications of this versatile technology.


CASE Study Conference

CASE markets account more than 2.2 million tonnes of product. While precise data is hard to come by, the monetary value of this important segment is known to be high, in view of the complexity of the applications and the vital performance attributes which the PU-based materials provide: many of the products are precisely tailored for specific and highly demanding applications.

So we are talking about a substantial, highly diverse and dynamic business segment and, as noted earlier, its developments and requirements are often neglected. 

BioAmber will be presenting the results of testing carried on Polyurethane dispersions made with BioAmber bio succinic acid  applied to metal and steel substrates working with North Dakota State University (NDSU) . These results demonstrate excellent metal adhesion and enhanced solvent resistance of the bio succinic acid based coatings.

The CASE Study Conference now being planned by Crain Communications Ltd, publishers of Urethanes Technology International Magazine, creators of the UTECH Conference and Exhibition concept, will bring a sharp focus on all aspects of value and concern to these diverse activities.

Topics to be covered will include:
  • New processing equipment and techniques
  • Application and manufacturing processes
  • Novel materials and chemical systems
  • Performance-enhancing additives
