RAL Shade Matching: Is the Lowest Cost Formula Always Better?

Join us at the Paint & Coatings Conference in Milan, October 25-26, 2022. DCL’s Zeki Acar, Application Specialist and Business Development Manager, will be presenting on RAL Colours. His presentation will take place on October 25th, from 2:20-2:40 PM in Arena 4.

Abstract: In this lecture the pigmentation possibilities of the RAL colours 1023 Traffic Yellow, 2004 Traffic Orange, 3020 Traffic Red will be shown, also using a classic lead pigmentation as a reference. For industrial applications, different pigments and pigmentations will be compared in terms of material costs, opacity and long-term outdoor durability to show the long-term costs of colour maintenance.

This study is ultimately intended to raise awareness among paint manufacturers that the supposedly cheap pigments on a per kilo basis may prove to be less cost-efficient than the expensive pigments in the long run.

ERP Update

On July 1st we successfully migrated the legacy DCC customer order fulfillment process from QAD, to Infor M3.  All inventory, quality control, pricing, invoicing, etc. previously handled by legacy LANSCO Colors and DCC systems has now been successfully moved and modernized to M3.  We are one important step closer to operating as one unified team!

The next phase of this project will be to build on the success of running our Maastricht Netherlands Bismuth Vanadate factory on M3 with the migration of our other manufacturing units.  Later this year we will transfer our Waterfoot water-based dispersion factory to M3 and early next year move our Canadian manufacturing facilities onto the system.
