Micro-Scale Coating Platforms
Branded as the NanoCoat line of MFStek materials, this micro-scale Layer Forming Surface Modifier (mLFSM) platform covers coatings with a scale of 3 - 200 microns. Typically selected by customers who desire the properties often deemed synonymous with nanotechnology - hydrophobic, oleophobic, self-cleaning stain repellent, etc. however are looking for greater mechanical abrasion resistance. NanoCoat is typically selected over the SIGMAtek material when the project specification calls for the alteration of the surfaces aesthetic and/or tact along with the surface functionalities.
Typically supplied in two component systems, these materials are mixed together prior to application and applied as a single layer, providing substantial labour savings when compared to traditional coatings that require multiple coats.
The NanoCoat platform is most frequently utilized by OEMs who are looking to increase or decrease UV absorbency, mechanical abrasion and chemical resistance of the market-ready NanoCoat formulations. The second most frequent request is for minor modifications to the pigmentation of the coating material which is available in a variety of market-ready colours (see below) and in any pantone colour.
