Description

Innovation in coating formulation: Accelerated development and novel functionality

This is a new initiative for West Riding OCCA and the Centre for Process Innovation (CPI) to jointly host an event to promote the benefits of both organisations. CPI will provide facilities and speakers demonstrating the equipment and funding opportunities available to companies in the surface coatings industry. They have a number of funding allocations to support Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in the NE Region, as well as National and International Support.

CPI’s National Formulation Centre is based at Sedgefield in County Durham, located alongside CPI’s Printable Electronics and Graphene Application Centres and enables CPI to provide a joined up approach to the development of next generation formulated products and their applications across markets such as paints and coatings, healthcare and pharmaceuticals, home and personal care, industrial products, oil and gas, and food and drink.
