Research to Change Course of Protective Coatings Industry

A protective coating is the best way to protect a surface and structure from damaging, whether it is for a product or whole infrastructure. The need for it increasing as it reduces maintenance costs by a substantial amount. Protective coatings in industrial applications can save a lot of costs on machinery, which would otherwise be lost in maintenance or repair.

  • Syneffex recently published the results of its new coating called Heat Shield™ High Heat, which was installed at a U.S. Army Base located at Fort Wainwright. This new coating has proved to be very effective and can withstand moisture by easily being coated onto both, hot and cold pipes taking up almost no space.
  • Researchers at Cutin University, Australia, have found a new way of using graphene as a protective coating. They have found a way to apply a thin layer of graphene oxide to silicon and form an impermeable barrier. This barrier is completely invisible to the naked eye and could be used to protect artwork, metals, electronic components, and even produce higher efficiency solar cells.

As more and more research and developments take place in the protective coatings industry, we should expect to see some major advancements with nanotechnology and smart materials.
