TMC GmbH is a company specialized in recipe consolidation and the resulting raw material simplification. Various computational analysis methods are used for this purpose. One example is the solubility parameters according to Hansen, which are available for many raw materials. Solubility parameters are ideal key figures in recipe optimization and for replacing individual raw materials, such as solvent replacement or the selection of flow additives. Also, binder compatibility and the resulting transparency of coatings such as automotive base & clear coats can be greatly simplified by determining Hansen Solubility Parameters (HSP).
