About these DAILY sessions

Daily feature session, hosted by RSC, will feature a successful breakthrough member company that has benefitted from the RSC’s SME ‘EnterprisePlus’ scheme, providing an insight into their individual innovations & their developmental journey including the success & dynamics of the ‘EnterprisePlus’ programme.

Featured companies/solutions include:

  • Day 1: (Wed 15 Sept, 14.00 – 14.20)

Dr Patrick Dodds, CEO and Founder of Hexigone

This presentation will explore several smart additives for coatings which provide various functionalities and “bring them to life” such as chemically intelligent corrosion inhibitors enabling self-healing coatings and antimicrobial additives which make coatings key to preventing the spread of diseases in hospitals.

Hexigone now has over 40 partners who are formulating with its products, ranging from multi-billion pound coating manufacturers to steel producers to smaller niche coating manufacturers. Strong evidence from these independent validations shows Hexigone products (notably AX1) outperforming the market leaders in the respective industries (Fig.1). Where compatible, Hexigone has so far shown outperformance of reference pigments 100% of the time.

  • Day 2: (Thur 16 Sept, 15.00 – 15.20)
