Latin America. The latest issue of this year includes different perspectives on the emission of VOCs in paints, the transition to a more sustainable industry, mechanisms to control corrosion and the profile of a professional who leads the innovation team of one of the most important companies in the region.
"Beyond the sensations emitted by the color that each company selects for 2023, a common pattern must be sustainability," says the editorial of 25-2 issue of Zona de Pinturas, which can also be downloaded. This includes the idea of several contents gathered in this end-of-year issue that together demonstrate one of the key challenges of the industry, highlighted in times of pandemic, and marks the meaning of innovation processes.
The cover story provides a broad overview of how the emission of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) permeates the paints and coatings sector, the resulting harms and the regulations and alternatives that have emerged in recent times.
The commercial manager of Carboquímica Distribution, Fernando Rodríguez Giraldo, as well as the president of Acoplásticos, Daniel Mitchell, whom we interviewed during our visit to the Colombia Pinta fair, in Bogotá, delve into this.
Likewise, the profile of our professional of the month, the senior manager of Research and Development of Pintuco (owned by AkzoNobel), Marleny Yepes, reflects the continuous work of an entire group to generate innovations in different industries and transform the lives of many people through color.
On the other hand, our collaborators Juan Manuel Álvarez and Abel de la Cruz Pérez explain some corrosion control mechanisms and the difference between an audit and inspection in projects of this type in their respective articles.
