"By combining KCC's accumulated paint techniques and component technology from the Korea Research Institute of Chemical Technology, we will lead the global mobility paint market," KCC's paint business head Kim Bum-sung said after signing an agreement to develop and commercialize coating material technology for mobility on September 6.
In 2020, a solvent-free coating material developed by KCC through collaboration with South Korea's Hyundai shipbuilding group was applied to a large ore carrier to reduce sulfur oxide (SOx) emissions. Harmful air pollutants emitted from shipyards come mostly from volatile organic compounds used in solvent-based paints. Samsung Heavy Industries' research team has teamed up with Jotun, a Norwegian chemical company dealing in decorative paints and performance coatings, to develop a solvent-free coating technology.
