NVISIONCOATINGS LLC is a newly formed start-up company focusing on the creation, development, and commercialization of the Next Generation of Innovative Coating Solutions. Simple, easy to apply, wet chemical coating solutions via sol-gel chemistry together with Nanotechnology is the essence of the research leading to the creation of these unique, functional coatings defined as Sol-Gel Nanocomposites.
Sol-Gel Nanocomposites represent an unique class of sol-gel materials due to the advantage of their synthetic preparation route of introducing inorganic functionality starting from molecular precursors. This leads to the opportunity of creating novel hybrid materials with both organic and inorganic functionality on the smallest feasible scale. The benefits of the sol-gel process, which include mild reaction conditions, control over the structure and kinetics of reactions by varying reaction conditions, and the endless combination of available precursors, allows for the creation of an infinite range of materials and properties.
“Surprisingly Simple…Unexpected Performance”. These unique, functional coatings feature low viscosities for easy application by conventional coating techniques and can be cured to durable, highly functional coatings at ambient conditions. No expensive chemical/physical vapor, vacuum, or sputtering deposition equipment is required.
The range of functionalities attainable are limitless. Light manipulation to form mirror, anti-reflective, anti-glare, UV or IR reflectance, scattering, or absorption; color manipulation by interference pigmentation; abrasion and scratch resistance improvements; easy to clean/anti-stick/anti-graffiti properties; anti-fog; self-cleaning; self-healing; anti-fingerprint; tailoring of refractive index; anti-corrosion; anti-static; conductive; anti-bacterial; barrier properties; impact resistance improvements; and universal, primer-less adhesion are just to name a few.
Sol-Gel Nanocomposites will become the next disruptive, high-tech coating innovation to meet the ever more stringent requirements of new application markets in the future.
