SIMPLIFICATION OF THE PAINT SYSTEM

The addition of Inhibispheres® does not interfere with optical properties. This means that they can be added to the top coat, providing anti-corrosive properties while maintaining the gloss. This would potentially allow the replacement of a primer and topcoat system by a single coating (direct-to-metal). This represents a significant cost saving for the end user and the potential to design a premium product for the paint manufacturer.

Replace a 2 coat system (Primer + Top Coat) by 1 single coat.

INHIBISPHERES®

FUTURE PROOF YOUR COATINGS

Inhibispheres® are submicron ceramic particles which can provide specific functionalities to classic coating formulations. Active materials, such as corrosion inhibitors, can be incorporated inside the ‘Smart Particles’, which can then simply be mixed into a paint or coating formulation. The particles are mechanically resistant, can survive paint formulation processes (e.g. mixing, grinding, extrusion) and will not adversely affect the mechanical properties of the coating.
