Coatings R&D Notebook

Abstract

The uses of nanomaterials for the controlled release of additives in coatings systems are discussed. Nanoparticles have been utilized to encapsulate coating additives in such a way as to allow their sustained time-release after the coating has been applied. The encapsulation process involves the production of hollow microsphere nanoparticles that have open pores through their surfaces. Because the particle and pore sizes can be varied, a significant degree of versality can be exercized with coating-additive release properties.
