THE COMPANY PRESENTS ITS RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT ON MULTIFUNCTIONAL COATING AT THE ACC 2018

The company’s current research entitled “Multifunctional coating based on nano fillers and natural substances” has been chosen for an oral presentation at the 2018 American Coatings Conference in Indianapolis, the major technology forum for the coating industry, which will take place April 9-11, 2018, in conjunction with the American Coatings Show, which is held April 10-12, 2018.

The company research’s aim is to propose a new multifunctional coating system Nanto Paint Bio green© to cope with the demand for control and management of ships’ biofouling. The system is composed by a layer containing a resin dispersion of functionalized nanoclays for corrosion inhibition and an additional layer used to provide either a durable superhydrophobic coating based on functionalized nanosilicas, or for the dispersion of novel ecologically compatible anti-microbial-adhesion agents, based mainly on natural substances.

The presentation is scheduled for Monday April 9, from 4:00 to 4:30 pm within the Functional and Smart Coating Session and the paper will also be considered for publication in American Coatings Association’s affiliated journals. Moreover, the best overall conference paper will be chosen by the 2018 ACC Program Committee to receive the American Coatings Award.

The company wish to thank the American Coatings Association for this opportunity, and invite you to join it at the conference. This is a great chance to ask questions about the topic and receive immediate answers.
