Peter Hope is technical director of LVH Coatings Ltd, a private company that develops and commercialises electrodepositable paint processes utilising both purely organic and composite material systems. These organic polymer-based aqueous processes utilise principles of electrophoresis in their deposition as well as various other electrochemical mechanisms. LVH Coatings has accumulated substantial expertise in the formulation and management of aqueous polymer electrodeposition, especially in respect of substrate preparation and process control in an industrial environment.
