MILAN – Provider of high-tech paints and coatings, Marchetti Tech has launched a new sustainable, high-performance line of coatings with graphene as the secret ingredient. Developed with the industrial sector in mind, the Graphene Line improves machinery performance and material durability. This line of graphene-based paint products consists of various solvent-based primer and finish solutions with variable levels of gloss. The coatings are designed as a final overlap with paints in different colors and finishes.
Created with sustainable processes (minimizing water consumption and adopting recycling practices), the Graphene Line is designed to improve durability. When correctly integrated with coatings and paints, graphene creates a protective film, which prevents corrosion. Compared to ordinary paints, Marchetti Tech's graphene application cycles lasts longer, up to 2500 hours in extreme conditions – as shown by the corrosion test conducted according to UNI EN ISO 9227:2017 (NSS) standards at Motivex Lab AutoMotive Test.
Graphene-based paints, coatings and primers can be particularly beneficial for those operating in the oil and gas industry, stone, nautical, automotive, and construction sectors, who are trying to improve machinery performance. The use of graphene paints can help to increase chemical and physical resistance, impact and abrasion resistance, as well as resistance to atmospheric agents and high temperatures.
Joseph Anthony Miceli, CEO of Marchetti Tech, said, “With sustainability being one of our top priorities, it was important for us to develop a high-tech, environmentally friendly product able to improve machinery longevity and safety. We have manufacturers’ needs at heart and we are always striving to solve industry challenges through technological progress.”
The Graphene Line will be introduced on April 16 at the Marchetti Tech Symposium event, which will take place in Viareggio, Italy. A number of qualified speakers, such as technicians, scientists, and engineers, will introduce the product to the press, outlining the benefits of graphene technology for each industry, as well as the specific characteristics of this ingredient.
