Seacoat's newest hull coating release, SEA-SPEED V 10 X ULTRA, helps curb marine organism fouling on the front end and makes any hull cleaning operations much easier and less expensive than conventional hull coatings, all with zero negative environmental impact due to its non-toxic chemistry on the back end of the equation.
Today there are various companies involved in the production of commercially available icephobic coatings. This article lists many of them, along with details on the coatings' technology and applications.
Because of the performance capabilities of the new water-based acrylic polymer primers and their applicability to nearly all substrates, paint manufacturers have an opportunity to consolidate their primer inventory and provide their customers with a solution for the most challenging corrosive environments.
This research aims to create a surface coating with a relatively low surface energy value that can repel the spike glycoprotein, and also through the use of active chemicals, inactivate the spike glycoprotein as well as viral nucleotides in the coronavirus.
SLIPS Foul Protect N1x has successfully demonstrated the pathway to reducing marine fouling with a non-toxic, environmentally friendly approach combining the smooth and slippery liquid-based surface (Physical module) and highly branched amphiphilic SAPs (Chemical module).
Recent energy-curable resin developments respond to the increasing demand for suitable oligomers for coatings on plastics in different segments such as consumer electronics, cosmetic packaging and automotive interiors for different specifications and aesthetic requirements.
The technology being developed to protect the steelwork used in many of Britain's modern buildings allows architects to design freely, safe in the knowledge that their projects will be compliant as well as creative. Rick Perkins of Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings looks at a major breakthrough in intumescent fire protection coatings.
July features our most popular article of the year – the Global Top 10 and PCI 25, a ranking of the leading coatings manufacturers. This issue also includes a guide to antimicrobial coatings, an article that evaluates the use of novel acrylated amine oligomers to address curing deficiencies in UV LED-cured systems, as well as an article on self-cleaning elastomeric cool roof coatings.
