The European Coatings Show in Nuremberg has always been an important platform for Helios Resins to meet up with existing and potential customers, present new products, ideas and innovations. This year’s event was no exception.

Resins team had many visitors and held a lot of meetings discussing possible future cooperation and bigger projects. In addition to a very busy time at the booth, experts from the company had also given two product presentations. Martin Ocepek, PhD, Head of R&D, presented hydroxyl-functional resins for high-performance and environment-friendly 2K PUR Coatings. These products represent the company’s step to bio-based and circular economy. The company is member of SRIP – Circular economy, which also co-financed Helios’s presence at the international fair.

Gregor Vilfan, MSc, Key Account Manager, presented novel polyester resins for BPA-NI can coatings.

Helios Resins team would like to thank all visitors, valued customers and partners for contributing to the company’s joint success at the ECS 2019.
