PPG announced that Kevin Braun, PPG Vice President, Industrial Coatings, will deliver the keynote address at the 2019 Eastern Coatings Show (ECS), May 13-15 at Harrah’s Resort in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
Braun’s presentation, titled “The Future of the Coatings Industry: How Current Trends Are Driving Change,” will review the convergence of two megatrends – digital transformation and the future of mobility – and the opportunities they present to the coatings industry. Braun will address the need for coatings manufacturers to evolve beyond developing products that prevent corrosion and provide color. The more urgent challenge is to create materials that help functionalize a rapidly emerging mobility ecosystem.
Braun also will address new solutions to traditional coatings industry challenges, such as improving quality control, corrosion resistance and production efficiency while making coatings less energy-intensive to manufacture.
