The aim of this study was to design hydrophobic or super hydrophobic coatings based on sol-gel chemistry by incorporating hydrophobic moieties and controlling surface morphology.
This revolutionary, “green” vapor-phase corrosion inhibitor (VpCI®) is aimed for protection of metal parts in a non-ventilating space.
The improvement in coating performance comes in part from the presence of the hardwearing nanodiamond particles integrated into the polymers, but there is also a change in the overall structure of the coating.
Smart coatings are an area of development and commercialization that promises to change the expectations of what can be accomplished with coatings.
Polymers provide Low-VOC, Excellent Block Resistance, Hardness and Film Formation
