Our Center of Excellence in Suzhou, China, focuses on innovative performance coating solutions for a wide variety of materials used in applications such as seat and trim, elastomer coatings and flock adhesives. Besides serving the automotive industry, the center is meeting the growing demand in China for packaging film and paper, synthetic materials, coated fabrics, textiles, and specialty applications like medical and supportive gloves.

Coating solutions with the lowest possible impact

As at all Stahl Centers of Excellence, the we conduct customer trials at Suzhou that enable the development and application of new solutions, and we strive to make coating solutions that have the lowest possible impact on people’s health and the environment. The Suzhou center’s state-of-the-art testing machinery supports the development of advanced new solutions, such as our water-based Stahl EVO® products. This portfolio consists of hazardless solutions such as VOC-free, low-smell, water-based and solid products such as resins, cross-linkers, pigments and additives.

Solar panels for a sustainable center

Stahl strongly believes in taking responsibility, whether we are developing new products or building new offices, factories and centers. As such, the new Center of Excellence – opened in November 2018 – has been equipped with solar panels providing part of the electricity that is consumed by the lab. A solar illumination and motion-detective lighting system have been implemented to save electricity. Green plants on the rooftop enable temperature control during the hot season and the investment in a high efficiency air filter system guarantees clean air emission. Also, the choice for low VOC boards for the partitions and recurring construction materials contribute to the sustainability of the Center.
