Feitintas 2012 Preview - Companies Take
Opportunity to Showcase Latest Launches
For its 2012 edition, the paint and coatings trade fair Feitintas
has been restructured and expanded. Making it an internatio-
nal paint and coatings trade fair and symposium was a signi-
ficant step in this restructuring process, as new contents were
added to the trade show and its focus was set in furtherance

of their innovative paints, coatings, complements, instruments
and application equipment.

facturers of acrylic resins kept their expectations up for 2012.
However, with the slowdown in the market during the first half
of the year, their growth has turned out below the expectations.
This was due to the downturn in the Brazilian and world econo-
mies arising out of the international crisis.
Now there is some uncertainty about growth for the second
half, although the business tends to pick up because the demand
is usually stronger in this period. In fact, there are excellent

resin manufacturers remain optimistic, expecting the industry
