19 March - 21 March 2019 Nuremberg, Germany

Take the opportunity to meet our colloidal silica experts at the 2019 European Coatings Show in Nuremberg, Germany and talk about Levasil CC, the natural choice when making the switch from solventborne to waterborne coatings.


The European Coatings Show is the premier European event for the paints and coatings industry. The trade show gives the opportunity to meet innovation leaders and discuss the latest developments in pigments, additives, adhesive and raw materials, intermediates for construction chemicals as well as laboratory and production equipment, testing and measuring equipment, application and environmental protection and safety work.

Curios about self-cleaning properties using Levasil Colloidal Silica?

Meet our experts to learn about the self-cleaning properties you can achieve in many types of coatings such as sol silicate paints and elastomeric cool roof coatings by adding our product. You find us in our booth, #444 in Hall 1.

Come and listen to our lectures

Take the opportunity to come and listen to Dr. Peter Greenwood, Technical Development Manager, who will share the main findings from studies on 

Silane modified colloidal silica as performance enhancer of acrylic elastomeric cool roof coatings The use of silane modified colloidal silica to improve dirt pick-up resistance in waterborne coatings is well established. In our recent study we have seen that it can play a key role to enhance the over-all performance of acrylic elastomeric cool roof coatings since they need to stay clean in order to maintain the cooling performance. 

When: Monday, March 18 at 10:30 - 11:00
Session 2 in Room Kiew

Dr. Peter Greenwood has a Doctoral Degree in Chemical Engineering from the Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden and has been active in the field of coating, lacquers and colloidal silica for more than 20 years. He has written twelve technical and scientific papers for scientific journals as well as numerous presentations for conferences and is inventor or co-inventor of eighteen inventions.

We also recommend listening to Dr Jan Nordin, Senior Application Specialists from Expancel, who will be speaking on the topic: The effects of hollow microspheres in elastomeric cool roof coatings, during the conference.

When:Monday, March 18 at 11:00-11:30
Session 2 in Room Kiew

Product presentation on elastomeric cool roof coatings

If you do not have the opportunity to listen to our paper we recommend meeting up at the product presentation area in hall 1 to listen to Dr. Jan Nordin and Dr. Peter Greenwood when they give a short presentation on: Self-cleaning elastomeric cool roof coatings with superior performance and get a quick insight into how to enhance the self-cleaning properties of elastomeric cool roof coatings without sacrificing other important properties such as total solar reflectance, adhesion and elasticity.

When:Wednesday, March 20 at 12:10-12:30
Where: Product presentation area in hall 1
