Truly eco-friendly paints

Abstract:
Ecology Coatings, a privately held company based in Akron, Ohio, U.S., has come out with path-breaking eco-friendly paint formulations which are comprised of 100 per cent solid material, use no carriers but which are fluid enough to be easily sprayed.

These coatings are composed of oligomers (which flow better than resins) and reactive diluents, as well as pigments, fillers, curing agents, and additives. Reactive diluents, also known as monomers, lower the viscosity of the coating enough for application.

The secret of Ecology's paints is nano-engineering. The 100 per cent solids coatings use a combination of nanoparticles combined with microparticles. Such an arrangement packs space very densely, resulting in superior hardness and water resistance. Ecology's coatings have excellent adhesion and abrasion resistance.
