Profile & expertise
Procoat Tecnologías is a Spanish company with more that 40 years of experience in the development of surface treatments for metal surfaces.
The last Generation in surface treatments developed by Procoat are water based, VOC´s & Cr free solutions and they are all based on acrylic polymers well known around the world under the tradename BRUGAL®.
The different polymers used in our Surface Treatments are fully designed and developed by Procoat depending on each type of application. Our commitment with the environment is very strong and we are willing to develop our current and new technology based on more sustainable raw materials like recycled MMA.
Our Headquarters is located in Barcelona (Spain) and we currently have 3 different subsidiaries in USA (TecCoat LLC), in India (GreenCoat Private Limited LTD) and in Germany (Procoat Deutschland).
Role in the Project
The main contribution of Procoat Tecnologías to the project will be to check and validate if rMMA can be suitable for the development of Surface Treatments in the metal industry.
Our current know-how allows us to modify the polymerization process with rMMA in case that the impurity level affects to our standard polymer formulations.
It is also possible that we could successfully use rMMA with high impurities since we also develop coloured coatings.
A full investigation will be carried out in different formulations polymerized with rMMA and General performance will be evaluated in comparison with standard MMA.
