The automotive coating is a complicated system which needs multi-stage deposition and consumes a lot of energy releasing high amount of wastes.
There are still concerns of automotive producers on anti-corrosion protection of current coating systems especially on cut edges and in hollow structures.
Therefore the automotive industry is looking for new technologies which could require:

  • less deposition steps;
  • reduction of VOC generation
  • lower coating thickness ensuring the same or even better corrosion protection
  • providing proper adhesion properties
  • improved performance in critical zones

Project Approach

  • Active feed-back of the coatings depends on the internal state of the coating system and the external environmental conditions
  • Different levels of active protection are working as response to different impacts
