the coatings industry continues to evolve. To the outsider, much might look the same as it did just a decade or two ago. To the insider, industry restructuring and globalization have changed its footprint, regulations have impacted formulations, product stewardship is adding new business challenges, and technology has evolved such that products are actually different in some meaningful ways from the clean air act became law in the united states over 40 years ago. This look at how things have changed but also at how some things have remained the same, provides one observer's view of the paints and coatings industry, key participants, and the drivers that continue to shape the industry and inspire continued innovation.

About the project:
i would like to understand more about the procurement of posm in latin america and how clients are maintaining consistency while in-store material execution.
Below are the key areas that i am looking for;
consistency in in-store material execution-
how to mitigate challenges like price variations for raw materials between countries within latin america?
How to ensure consistency in the quality of posm materials through out latin america?
How to improve the process of in-store material design, production and execution?
How are companies handling retailer specific requests across different store and countries?

We're looking to develop a material that we can use as a soluble support material in the fused deposition process in 3d printing.
One of the routes that surfaced is centered on the use of the same techniques used in photoresists to produce a soluble resin. There seems to be a lot work with photosensitive agents in styrene copolymers
theses positive photoresists use uv activation and an alkali solvent.
As the sensitising agents are already combined with polystyrenes i reasoned that they could also be used in higher mw styrenes that could be used in our fused deposition process. I propose we could then use a uv light bath and dissolve the activated resist in alkali solvent.
My question is, is it possible to create photo-sensitized higher mw polystyrenes? If so, we will need someone to guide us through the process in creating that ip.+8 Other Responses
