A few words about the Chemical Industry

Die chemische Industrie befindet sich in einem Umfeld der Ungewissheit - nicht nur aufgrund pandemiebedingter Störungen, sondern auch aufgrund der gegensätzlichen Kräfte, die auf die Branche einwirken. Umweltprobleme, ineffektives Kunststoffrecycling, Klimawandel und Dekarbonisierung bedrohen das Wachstum der Branche, doch der Bedarf an Leichtbaumaterialien in der Automobilproduktion und die Nachfrage aus den aufstrebenden Volkswirtschaften im Osten erhöhen die Aussichten auf mehr Chancen. In der sich wandelnden und widersprüchlichen Landschaft von heute zu bestehen, ist schwierig und verwirrend.

Erfolgsgeschichten

Herausforderung

The Sherwin-Williams Company is the largest producer of paints and coatings in the United States. A valued, long-term customer who is a leading manufacturer of healthcare equipment reported that test samples had failed a critical chemical resistance test. The customer uses external job shops to paint equipment parts and was puzzled when the exact same batch of paint passed the testing on parts painted by some job shops, while failing when painted at others. Paint retained at the Sherwin-Williams laboratory was tested for chemical resistance and passed. The problem remained unresolved for over a year.
