Nanosized molecules have a tremendous impact on coating properties. The coatings market has been one of the early adopters of nanotechnology-enabled solutions. This has helped in the development and launch of several nanomaterial-infused products, increasing its potential use cases in applications ranging from cancer drug delivery, high-performance batteries to advanced coatings. Today, researchers are also exploring other materials (e.g. 2D layered materials) contributing to the popularity of highly functional, nano-enabled coatings.
This SpecialChem review covers Vinavil’s polymeric-based nanotechnology acrylic dispersion that delivers high performance in various industrial coating applications, including multifunctional nano-polymer emulsions for wood stains & coatings. Vinavil’s Crilat 7829 is a nano-sized, self-crosslinking pure acrylic emulsion that enables high performance without compromising on the visual appeal of the coated product. Vinavil is currently engaged in the development of high-performance coating products for the textile industry, and considering their track record, the company is optimistic that their new offering would be an exciting development for the textile industry.
