Low cost waterproofing process through nanotechnology

Abstract:
Ecology Coatings, Inc., based in Akron, Ohio, U.S., has now come up with a dramatic breakthrough technology for making ordinary wood pulp-based paper fully waterproof as well as mildew resistant at a much lower cost than the conventional process.

The material involved is Ecology Coating's proprietary 100 per cent solids formulations combining nano as well as micro particles. It contains no water, toxic solvents or other liquid components that need to evaporate for the coating to set; it is cured by ultraviolet light. This eliminates the need for heat in the process, reduces manufacturing line space by 80 per cent and cuts energy consumption by 75 per cent.
