Air Products' Airase 8070 deaerator wins Ringier Coatings award 2012.Ringier Ringier AG is the largest media corporation in Switzerland based in Zofingen. It publishes several newspapers and magazines in both German and French. It has a yearly income of approximately 1.1 billion CHF with profits around 55.6 million and over 6,000 employees. Coatings Technology Innovation Award for its new Airase 8070 deaerator A Deaerator is a device for air removal and is used to remove dissolved gases (an alternate would be the use of water treatment chemicals) from boiler feedwater to make it non-corrosive. , a high performance, siloxane siloxane /si·lox·ane/ (si-lok´san) any of various compounds based on a substituted backbone of alternating silica and oxygen molecules; in polymeric form they are polysiloxanes, and when the side chain substituents are organic radicals, polyether-based deaerator for controlling microfoam and pinholes in waterborne coatings, especially those applied with high-speed techniques such as airless or air-assisted spray. It's the second consecutive year for Air Products to receive the awards.
Unlike most conventional defoamers which are active only at the coating of the surface, Airase 8070 deaerator is effective in eliminating microfoam, a major problem faced by low-VOC waterborne formulators, and reducing pinholes and craters in coating film to improve gloss, depth of image among other aesthetical properties said the company. With strong compatibility, the zero-VOC deaerator is ideal for coating formulators seeking minimum surface defects, durability and high performance and is recommended for water-based applications such as wood furniture coatings, joinery joinery, craft of assembling exposed woodwork in the interiors of buildings. Where carpentry refers to the rougher, simpler, and primarily structural elements of wood assembling, joinery has to do with difficult surfaces and curvatures, such as those of spiral and industrial coatings applied onto metal, plastic.
Launched in 2006, the Ringier Technology Innovation Awards recognize those who have made the most significant contributions for the advancement of industry through technical innovation, increasing productivity, boosting economic efficiency and creating market opportunities. The awards for the coatings industry were set up in 2011. To qualify for the awards, products must be relevant to China and in the forefront of the international coatings industry, and be judged to have helped take China's coatings industry to new levels.
