OCCA is continuing to monitor the ongoing situation with respect to the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19). We are following official UK government guidelines, which advise on how to contain, delay and mitigate the spread of the virus.
In line with the most recent government official guidance, all face to face OCCA meetings and events have been cancelled until further notice. However, we are focusing our efforts into providing a number of new online initiatives, including our newly launched Weekly Webinar series, Council & team meetings, networking and social events, primarily via our new Zoom platform.
Please see our website and social media platforms for details of all planned events, including booking links where appropriate.
Date: Wednesday 7th July 2021
Time: 14:30 – 15:30
Our Series 4 of OCCA Weekly Webinars continues with "Benefits of water-borne epoxy-phenolic pre-condensates" presented by Andreas Hermes of Allnex.
This webinar is free to attend, simply register below and you'll receive further details & joining instructions in due course.
Allnex has developed several water-based epoxy-phenolic systems with excellent storage stability for usage in corrosion-resistant coatings. These systems can be used as either the sole binder or in combination with other phenolic or melamine resins. Free formaldehyde content is very low, so some of these products will not need to be labelled with H 350 classification. The baked films provide high chemical resistance and outstanding corrosion protection on degreased or phosphated steel sheets. The resins of the PHENODUR® VPW series from allnex impress with their wide range of applications, both in a traditional stoving process and under “coil-coating” conditions. Depending on the existing application environment, the user can choose between several application temperatures.
