SONGWON Opens Technical Service Coating Laboratory in South Korea


SONGWON Industrial Group has opened a technical service coating laboratory at its Maeam manufacturing facility in South Korea. According to SONGWON, it now has all the necessary devices, tools, and stations for both powder and liquid coating applications.

The laboratory is located next to SONGWON’s R&D headquarters and global application community, which according to SONGWON, means that the organization can take advantage of the innovation synergy. The company stated that it is prepared to support customers develop and find solutions to formulation issues relating to UV and temperature stabilization, as well as UV curing.

SONGWON will use the laboratory to test the new molecules that its R&D team is developing and screen performance based on the different binders and formulation types that the customers in specific industries are using. SONGWON’s team of chemist and technicians is also dedicated to rapidly finding solutions to the stabilization challenges that customers in the industry are facing, the company added.

“Since this summer, we have already started working with several of our key customers to find the best packages to fit their needs and their applications,” explains Rosanna Telesca, leader of the Market Center Coatings. “Our new technical service laboratory will also be helping us to create value for our customers by boosting the technical developments of a new molecule, a new blend or even a new physical form for an existing product.”
