The second issue for 2021 of Coatings SA is packed with industry news. The highlight of Coatings SA’s second issue is of course one of South Africa’s Coatings Industry’s stalwarts – BAMR celebrating 75 years. This family-owned business was the first company to sign a distribution agreement with global-heavyweight, Elcometer. Coatings SA also talks about the raw material shortage impacting the paint and coatings market. There is recycling news from Polyoak and this issue is wrapped up with a celebration as Tom Bowtell from the British Coatings Federation is elected to the World Coatings Council.
