The mobility industry has seen remarkable advancements in coatings over the years. The development of advanced coatings has resulted in the improvement of the performance, durability, and aesthetics of moving machines. Innovations in coating technology have not only enhanced the performance of vehicles, trains, and airplanes but also expanded their lifespan. Advancements in coating formulation have seen the development of spray polymer coatings for steel surfaces- a low-cost alternative that extends the lifespan of steel surfaces while maintaining the structural integrity of the vehicle.
Exceptional performance and durability with the thinnest of functional coatings.
High scratch and abrasion
The use of smart coatings in the mobility industry has revolutionized the market. Smart coatings are designed to respond to changes in the environment, such as temperature fluctuation, UV exposure, and mechanical abrasions.
Smart coatings have opened up a new wave of possibilities in the mobility industry, providing additional features such as:
- corrosion resistance,
- shape memory,
- antimicrobial properties,
- self-healing attributes,
- anti-graffiti coatings,
- and more.
As a result, smart coatings have seen a rise in popularity, with many automotive industries adopting the use of the coatings to achieve insulation, provide energy-saving properties, and enhance safety and comfort for drivers.
Coatings advancements in the mobility industry have also led to the development of more environmentally friendly coatings. Vehicle pollution is a major cause of air pollution hence the advancement of eco-friendly coatings for cars is crucial for the environment.
Technology has advanced in a way that reduces the amount of VOCs produced in the production process which is proving friendly to the environment. More sustainable systems are being introduced including the use of water-borne coatings. Electric and hybrid automotive engines will dominate the market, and consequently, coating that are light weight while high performing are in high demand. Novel curing processes to reduce CO2 are also sort-after.
