The EXOCOAT products are raw materials for functional and smart coatings. They may be formulated with additives, resin, pigment and solvent, obtaining coatings with smart functionalities such as easy to clean, anti-fog, anti-fingerprint and superhydrophobicity.
Maintenance of infrastructure, industrial buildings and other structures is taking a big chunk from company and government budgets. Smart coatings can limit these expenses. Our new nano based raw materials for easy to clean coatings once formulated, repel water as well as dirt by forming a non-stick top layer. Our polymer resin for example cures into a strong hybrid inorganic/organic hydrophobic layer which withstands strong abrasive and chemical wear.
For protective coating primers, key is the ability to form a robust barrier to corrosion. One of the best barriers is a conversion coating. These coatings chemically convert the top layer of the metal into an inert barrier. A revolutionary way to achieve this is by applying sol-gel chemistry. A nano layer of the metal surface is converted to inert oxides like SiO2, ZrO2 or Al2O3, which are resistant to heat, acids and chlorine attack and thus especially resistant to corrosion.
Key Features Protective Coatings:
EXOCOAT products provide easy to clean solutions for trucks, trains and the automotive market to coating formulators and car care centres. Our products may be formulated into systems to reduce the tarnishing of rims, reduce dirt take-up of the bodywork as well as keeping the windscreen clear of rain and mud.
For trains and buses, we provide durable anti-graffiti resins for both interior and exterior.
Our products may be used on the inside of automotive windscreens or on mirrors to create fog protection.

A key challenge for coil coated plates is to keep them free from corrosion. Conversion coatings can be applied. As for Protective Coatings a successful way to achieve this is by applying our sol-gel chemistry. With sol-gel coatings, a nano layer of the metal surface is converted to inert oxides like SiO2, ZrO2 or Al2O3 , which are resistant to heat, acids and chlorine attack.
Axcentive also provide easy to clean functionality for coil coatings that keep their performance for several years. Our technology is compatible to flash cure conditions usually seen with coil coatings.
In a clear coat application, this very hydrophobic resin system also protects bare aluminium from corrosion giving a fabulous glossy appearance.
Formulations based on our unique resins, allows refurbishment of old coatings without extensive repainting, including surface preparation. Simply clean the old surface and apply the formulated coating directly. Not only regains the coating a new life, it will also provide a durable easy to clean finish.
