Over an area of some 2500 m², the new site is intended to focus Imerys’ R&D resources on its key markets, while at the same time enabling knowledge to be shared with other laboratories elsewhere in Europe, the US and Asia. Recognised as a  laboratory engaged in optimising and developing new mineral-based solutions for plastics (virgin, recycled and biopolymer resins), elastomers and life sciences, the Toulouse Technology Center is also a world centre of excellence for polymer applications.

Access to major university and scientific resources

With this new investment, it now boasts experts and equipment for the ceramic, building materials, filtration, health and food & feed markets. The Toulouse laboratory expanded its capacity at the end of 2020 and now employs more than 50 French and international technicians and scientists. According to Imerys, the location in Toulouse means that the Group will now have access to major university and scientific resources throughout a region that is home to major R&D initiatives.

Paint Analysis 2nd revised edition

Books

Paint Analysis

The market demands modern, high-performance, flawless paints that possess specified properties. Where deviations from set points occur, the cause must be investigated and the error must be remedied. What “standard methods” don’t disclose is why a particular coating either meets or fails to meet a requirement. Thus the author presents modern analytical techniques and their applications in the coatings industry that answer further complex questions. The information in this book can be used for performing failure analysis, production control and quality control, and also meet the requirements of modern high-level quality management. An excellent combination of theory and practice for formulators, paint engineers and applied technologists seeking a sound basic introduction to instrumental paint analysis and concrete answers to everyday problems.
