European Coatings Show 2017

Visitor record at the new Poraver® booth

The European Coatings Show in Nuremberg grows more and more and closes in 2017 with a new visitor record. For the first time with over 30,000 visitors, the event was the most successful ever. More than 1,100 exhibitors from 100 countries confirm the status as the leading international trade fair in this industry.

Even before the ECS opened its doors, the visitors were eagerly awaiting the show. The halls filled quickly and many new products were presented. The parallel conference was also very well attended. The visitors used the opportunity to inform themselves about products and make new contacts.

The company Poraver® also presented itself in a new look with a new booth. The topics at the booth covered Poraver® expanded glass and its application possibilities in the construction and refractory industries. The company introduced Poraver® X as a novelty. This new product is a further development of the classic Poraver® expanded glass with reduced water absorption and even brighter grain color. Poraver® X extends the standard product range and expands the application possibilities by dispersion-based “ready-mixed” products. Another highlight was the application “Aerogel thermal insulation render with Poraver®”. For this special example, trials and examinations were conducted in advance to demonstrate the positive effects of Poraver® in the render formulation. Poraver® is used as lightweight filler to increase the yield and to improve the compressive strength of the final product. The guide formulation was developed in the company’s own laboratory and can be requested here. The Aerogel thermal insulation render was also very suitable to show the differences in formulating because lightweight fillers require a volume-based instead of weight-based formulation and no weight-based basis.

Once again we would like to thank all visitors for the great interest making the ECS a great success for us. The next European Coatings Show in Nuremberg is already scheduled!

Save the date as well: 19th – 21st. March 2019

We are looking forward to welcoming you!
