Home > Press > New Coating to Make Your Car Cleaner and Airplane Safer

Abstract:
Imagine for a moment, a world where pilots can safely bypass the deicing pad prior to a winter flight, an automobile that is car key resistant and requires 60% less cleaning, a ship bottom that repels marine growth, or a wheel that prevents the unsightly appearance of brake dust or a speed boat that resists fading. These and other amazing coating benefits are now possible due to recent developments in nanotechnology.

New Coating to Make Your Car Cleaner and Airplane Safer

Brighton, MI | Posted on March 2nd, 2008

According to Nanovere Technologies Chairman and Principal Scientist Thomas F. Choate, "What's most unique about Zyvere coatings based on nanotechnology; is their ability to resist scratching and ease of cleaning. Zyvere Nanocoatings are permanent, self-cleaning and car key Resistant! Even after 5 years, our Zyvere Nanocoatings provide 100% gloss retention, a feat just not possible with any ordinary clear coat finishes." Zyvere Nanocoatings outperform all automotive OEM coatings, automotive aftermarket coatings and aerospace coating competitors;

» 53% higher scratch resistance: 6H pencil hardness
» 60% improved clean ability over any competitor
» 476% higher chemical resistance over the nearest competitor
» 100% gloss retention even after 5+ years

Why is tiny such a big thing?

Nanotechnology can be described as the science of molecular engineering. The word Nano is derived from the Greek word "small". A nanometer is one-billionth of a meter. For comparison purposes, a human hair is roughly 80,000 nanometers. The smaller the particle, the closer they reside together, which alters the surface area and material characteristics dramatically. Zyvere nanocoatings utilize nanostructured materials which form three dimensional molecular networks. These molecular networks form a very high crosslink density coating with remarkable physical properties including extreme scratch resistance, ultra high gloss, very high chemical resistance, extreme UV resistance, remarkable flexibility and self-cleaning properties including dirt, oil, ice and bug release properties.

Zyvere nanocoatings were specifically designed to be applied over Automotive OEM Coatings, Aftermarket Paint finishes, Aerospace Paint, Industrial Coatings and Marine Coating surfaces.
