COATINO® – The Dynamic Formulation Network
Your shortcut to optimal coating formulations
Formulations for paints and coatings
Developing new formulations for paints and coatings is a very complex and time-consuming task. In order to exactly meet their customer’s requirements with respect to color, gloss, and durability, formulation experts must head to the lab to create complex mixtures supplemented with the right additives. Thousands of additive combinations are possible. Extensive testing must be done to analyze each combination.
The AI-supported digital assistant COATINO® from Evonik Industries speeds up this process.

COATINO® is a web-based digital assistant with a variety of features:
Find your coatings solutions faster and easier. COATINO® analyzes, compares, and recommends hundreds of additives for paints and coatings.
Choose from countless guiding formulations for your pigment concentrates. And if there’s no formulation that matches your needs, COATINO® can predict your next formulation based on its AI-supported algorithms.
Conventional voice-recognition systems are unable to handle the specialist vocabulary. COATINO® understands the technical language of the coatings industry and answers your questions about the optimal additives.
A comprehensive database
The foundation of COATINO® is its comprehensive database: The number of possible combinations to find the most suitable additive is about 1070. And that data pool is growing continuously. This data is the result of decades of human experience in the coatings industry and the continuous testing of our high-throughput experimentation unit.
Dynamic data gathering – every day
The high-throughput experimentation unit for the testing of coating recipes at the Coating Additives Business Line of Evonik provides an important pool of data for the coating industry’s digital assistant. This unit doses raw materials, formulates them to create coatings, and characterizes the finished coatings. All of this runs fully automatically according to a precisely defined program that can be reproduced at any time. As a result, the unit can formulate an average of 120 samples in 24 hours. The results can be called up and reproduced at any time. If this data is linked with COATINO®, customers will constantly receive up-to-date data about tailor-made coating formulations.
