ABRAFATI. Brazilian Coatings Manufacturers Association




This issue marks the start of a new stage for ABRAFATI Magazine, whose layout has been redesigned and editorial profile updated. The availability of additional contents from the Association’s website is yet another innovation that adds value to the publication. Coming up as part of this process is the launch of the digital version, for ease of reading on cell phones, tablets and other devices. Other new developments will come, such as part of our contents being made available in English, aiming to expand our current readership.

A stronger magazine for a stronger industry. This is the logic behind the refreshed version we now present to you. The magazine’s entering a new stage is meant to reflect the evolution in the coatings supply chain and the growing representativeness of both the industry and ABRAFATI. In a nutshell, it is about what the cover article for this issue shows: we have been gaining more recognition for our initiatives and the results we have achieved.

At the same time, the change aims for a more modern, efficient and dynamic communication with our stakeholders, who need to be up-to-date on the progress and results of our own initiatives and others in which we are involved. After all, we can only keep moving forward thanks to the cohesive team work of a large number of qualified professionals who work at companies across the coatings supply chain, as well as our interaction with the market, the government and the academia.

We hope you enjoy our magazine in its new layout. Opinions and suggested improvements will always be welcome.
