Lubrizol enhances Singapore innovation centre for coating technology

CLEVELAND, US: The Lubrizol Corporation’s performance coatings business said it has enhanced its new lab capabilities at its innovation centre in Singapore. The innovation centre - a $5.5 million investment between Lubrizol’s performance coatings and personal and home care businesses - opened in Oct 2013 with the goal of extending Lubrizol’s innovation and technical expertise to customers throughout Asia. 

Expanding from a small rented lab space to a significantly larger Lubrizol-owned facility, the centre allows for customer training events, product R&D, formulations development, in-depth applications testing and a greater understanding of structural properties.

Over the past several months, new coatings capabilities have come online at the innovation centre, it said. “We constantly strive to innovate the right solutions that help our customers bring differentiated coating performance to the most challenging of applications using locally-sourced raw materials and additives. In fact, the innovation centre is already looking at how nano-technology can bring the next level of durability to coatings,” said Hui Choo Tan, performance coatings, regional technical manager, Lubrizol.
