Welcome to PPCJ online

globe.pngThis website provides you with current news; reports on exhibitions and conferences; products; features and general information on your industry and is an additional service for our journal readers, which enhances the overall package we offer our subscribers.

We will regularly report on the latest issues in paints and polymers.  Please browse the website for recent news articles and exhibition updates from the latest editions of PPCJ.

There is a natural synergy between the coatings business and the adhesives business with many of the same companies operating in both industries and adhesive and coatings products using very similar raw materials.

Therefore, it made considerable sense for the once separate EAS journal to be incorporated into PPCJ from 2004 and give both magazines the benefit of an extended readership across both industries.
