Research Projects for the Future

PRA is always interested to hear from members or non-members who have ideas which could form the basis of future individual or collaborative projects.

The following topics are under consideration as possible collaborative projects and we hope this will be happening within the near future.

  • Wood Protection – natural exposure testing of commercial products according to the CEN standard
  • Anti-Graffiti Coatings – testing of commercial products according to the ASTM Standard
  • Cure Monitoring for Shorter Cycle Times a project proposal is available for download (~56KB)
  • Progression of the study into Non-Destructive Adhesion Measurement for Coated Surfaces.
  • Formulation for Compliance with the 2017 Decopaint VOC Directive.

It is anticipated that most of these projects would attract partial funding from the public sector.
