 Colour, Resin & Surface Coatings Department

  General Information:

The Colour, Resin & Surface Coatings Department conduct research programmes in the area of technical information and formulating of the surface coatings and printing inks (print on plastics and various types of toners). One of the main targets of the group is to offer scientific and technical service to the industrial sectors. This department regularly holds training courses and seminars for individuals and companies involved in surface coatings and resins industries. Until now, six training short-courses and one national seminar on resins, coatings and related subjects were held in this group. The group activities are divided in three major objectives:

To conduct long-term research into polymeric resin & coating materials

To provide services to industry and carry out short-term contracts

To educate and train engineers and scientists

The current research activities within the department include:

Natural polymer modification for water treatment.

Marine Paints (Elastomeric and self polishing Polymers)

Preparation of starting materials for adhesive, resins, and surface coatings.

Printing inks

Surface Coating with different methods

Surveying the present status and the potential of industry and service issues corresponded to adhesives, surface coatings and variety of resins

Master batch (colour concentrate) for plastics

Coating systems for composites

Synthesis and applicability of the variety of resins

Water soluble/swellable resins

Synthesis and Characterisation of acrylic-based water soluble/swellable polymers

Synthesis and characterisation of pure monomer-based tackifying resins has been another research area of the department.
