European Coatings Show
and Farbe, Ausbau, Fassade 2019
Two important colour-related trade fairs took place almost simultaneously at the end of March: the “European Coatings Show” (ECS) in Nuremberg and the “Farbe, Ausbau und Fassade (FAF)” in Cologne. We were on the road at both fairs.
Pigment manufacturers were more represented at ECS than paint manufacturers, with a strong focus on the subject of color formulations. In a meeting with the recipe software manufacturer and freieFarbe member MatchMyColor, the possibilities and concrete plans for closer cooperation were discussed.
At the FAF almost all major colour manufacturers were represented, where we presented the HLC Colour Atlas and the idea of “free colour”.
Important discussion partners in Nuremberg and Cologne were also several mixing device manufacturers to whom we now provide our exact basic spectral data for 13000 CIELAB colour tones.
