Digitizing R&D: Reforming the formulation process

Bojan Buinac, the driving force and the brains behind Allchemist is going to be one of the presenters at European Coatings Show Conference in Nuremberg.

His presentation is a must for everyone in the paint and coatings industry. You can listen to his presentation on Tuesday, 19th of March, from 15:30 – 16:00 in Shanghai conference room.

Here is the short abstract of his presentation:

Mining data from printed or PDF datasheets and playing with formulations in the lab to develop new products are two traditional but tedious component of the R&D process. But what if there were a better way? This paper inquires as to whether there might be a better way forward, to increase efficiency, and thus promote creativity and free up formulators to do what they do best and are paid to do: create new products. Considering a two-step streamlining that would revolutionize the paints and coatings R&D process, we ran experiments on the potential benefits of digital formulation development. First findings of “research in progress” recommend a cloud-based approach, first to outsourcing data input of datasheets for materials in common repository and then harnessing the digitized data in order to experiment with formulations virtually. By using digitizing as we recommended, we could vastly reduce non-value-added activities from 50 to even 90%.

We are excited to announce our presence at the European Coatings Show 2019 in Nuremberg.

Meet us at Hall 1, Stand 1-210 of the biggest gathering of the paint and coatings industry, from 19th till 21st of March in Nuremberg and;

  • get the live demonstration of Allchemist platform on the spot,
  • ask as many questions as you have regarding the Allchemist platform,
  • make suggestions and leave your first impressions,
