Presentation »Corrosion Protection with Nanoscale Anticorrosive Pigments«
(European Coatings Award 2011)
In order to develop innovative coatings, innovative materials are needed. These are created in development cycles, starting with surface modification or the functionalization of fillers, pigments and binders, then adapting them to coating formulas and subsequently characterizing them in detail to optimize them and improve their efficiency.
Pigments and fillers that have proved to be effective in practice can be functionalized using a polymer precipitation process to modify their surface with nanoparticles or organic active ingredients. This creates added value to conventional pigments and fillers, giving the pigment, the respective coating and thus the coated product a higher practical value.
