Surface Functionalisation through Nanoscale Science


Automotive coatings and its processes used to coat surfaces has vastly contributed to the dynamics of research and development progress in this field. The essential part is what needs to be achieved, to satisfy the manufacturer as well as the final user and at the same time to meet the stringent requirements of the Automotive Industry.

What brings coat-it closer to the industry is the determination to create more durable surfaces, which are using less non-renewable resources, which are maximizing the efficiency of already existing processes and exceeding environmental regulations towards production and final products.

It’s nothing insightful that modern cars are made up of thousands of individual parts formed from different materials, which include among others metals and non-metals. Electroplating technology is essential for helping to achieve most of the physical and mechanical properties which are required by strict regulations of automotive industry.

With extensive expertise and products designed in a way to fit into existing processes, coat-it brings new quality to the automotive world with its nano-additives. Electroplating is indeed a necessary tool to all Automotive Engineers and Designers, therefore the first two processes tackled by us are:

Additives for electroplating nickel bath.

Electroless Nickel layers increase corrosion protection and the wear resistance. Using additives from coat-it you significantly enhance the mechanical and physical properties reducing at the same time the amount of nickel used in the process.

The same applies to decorative systems such as Copper-Nickel-Chrome process for instance. Our additive significantly improves corrosion resistance and enhances the appearance of metal and plastic parts at the same time.

Additives for electroplating zinc bath.

Zinc layers have been the core for corrosion protection by many years and their importance in modern industry is still of high value. That’s why we propose an additive that significantly improves the corrosion resistance, hardness and abrasion resistance in zinc layers. Making it much more reliable and stable.

In general, up to date technologies which are available to introduce instantly or which we are able to develop include among others corrosion protection, functional requirements and decorative surfaces.
