NEI Announces Allowance of Two New Patents to Its Portfolio of Functional Coatings

February 7, 2017

Somerset, NJ (USA) – NEI Corporation announced today that the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has recently issued a notice of allowance to the company on two patent applications; one for a durable highly hydrophobic coating and the other for an adhesion promoting surface treatment. These patents complement NEI’s portfolio of patents pertaining to superhydrophobic, self-healing, and abrasion resistant coatings. With the allowance of seven patents, and the introduction of an array of coating products, NEI’s concerted efforts to develop and implement practical, multi-functional coatings have now come to fruition.

There is great interest in functional coatings, for both industrial and consumer applications, where the coating or surface treatment provides functionalities beyond the usual protective and aesthetic properties. For example, self-healing coatings autonomously repair damage, hydrophobic coatings are able to vigorously repel water droplets, oleophobic coatings prevent “oil” molecules from sticking to the surface, self-cleaning or easy-to-clean coatings minimize or eliminate the need for chemicals during washing, and adhesion promoter surface treatments enable an ultra-strong bond between the primer and the surface. Commercial products to date have met with limited success because they are not engineered to meet all of the functional performance requirements that an application requires. NEI’s patented and patent-pending technologies address this market need.

The recently allowed patent application describes durable hydrophobic coating compositions that are highly desirable for numerous applications, as they impart easy-to-clean and stain-resisting properties to surfaces. For aesthetic reasons, there is also a need for a thin, transparent, easy-to-clean coating that does not add excess weight and does not change the appearance of the substrate to be coated. The patented compositions are comprised of functionalized perfluoropolyethers (PFPEs), which are known for their non-stick and lubricating properties. It has been a major technical challenge to incorporate PFPEs into a stable formulation that can lead to a coating with sufficient adhesion to various substrates. The patent claims transparent and homogeneous compositions that overcome the stability and adhesion issues. The compositions result in a micron-thick, durable hydrophobic coating that cannot easily be removed by abrasion, harsh cleaners, or chemicals. The patent is the basis for NEI’s hydrophobic coating products, NANOMYTE® SuperCN and SR-100EC.

The adhesion promoter patent application describes a chromate-free, surface pretreatment composition. The environmentally-friendly, waterborne pretreatment promotes the adhesion between a metal substrate and an overlying paint layer by acting as a “double‐sided bonding agent,” while at the same time improving corrosion resistance. The novel composition comprises organo-functional silanes but functions differently from traditional silane treatments. The composition results in a thin film coating having a graded structure, i.e., an inorganic oxide layer that bonds strongly with steel and a loosely crosslinked top layer containing functional groups that can further crosslink with paint overlay. The new technology is valuable to applicators who paint metal structures, such as bridges, ships, and other steel structures. It is also applicable to industrial painting operations, such as coil and spray coatings. The patented chromate‐free pretreatment for steel, offered commercially as NANOMYTE® PT-20, represents a significant advancement in the state‐of‐the‐art for corrosion resistant technologies.

Latest Test Results Confirm Performance of NEI’s Newly Optimized Anti-Ice Coating

October 25, 2016

Somerset, New Jersey (USA) – NEI Corporation announced today that it has enhanced the performance of its anti-ice coating, NANOMYTE® SuperAi, and confirmed its efficacy through rigorous testing under a variety of icing conditions. SuperAi is a nanocomposite coating that imparts anti-ice properties to the underlying substrate. As a consequence of the engineered properties of the anti-ice coating’s formulation, it reduces ice buildup on surfaces, and provides a hard, dense, smooth finish.

Surfaces treated with NANOMYTE® SuperAi exhibit reduced ice adhesion, thereby reducing ice buildup. Precisely calibrated Ice Adhesion measurements showed that SuperAi has an Ice Adhesion Reduction Factor of greater than 5 (relative to a polished metal surface), indicating that NANOMYTE® SuperAi reduces the adhesion of ice by more than 80%, compared to smooth, bare metal and painted surfaces. The performance remains unaltered after repeated icing-deicing cycles, as well as after mechanical abrasion. Further, Icing Wind Tunnel experiments showed that SuperAi allows ice to be removed with minimal force, confirming its usefulness under practical use conditions.

superai_applications

NANOMYTE® SuperAi can be applied to a variety of substrates, including plastic, metal, glass, and ceramic. In some instances, a suitable primer may be required for long term durability of the anti-ice coating. SuperAi is a single component coating that is easily applied by spray or brush. The dry film thickness can be adjusted to be in the range of 5 – 25 microns (1/5th to 1 mil), and only one coat is required to cover the substrate. Current applications include occurrences where ice removal is a challenge (e.g., wind turbine blades, power transmission lines and cables, cellular phone towers, windshields and other glass surfaces in automobiles, aircraft wings, and unmanned aerial vehicles, UAVs). SuperAi also provides corrosion protection, which is an added benefit. The use of SuperAi enhances productivity for the user and provides rapid payback, as well as a good return on investment.

NEI’s New Coating Technology Provides Self-Healing Protection for Traditional Coating Systems


March 24, 2015

Somerset, New Jersey (USA)NEI Corporation announced today that it has introduced NANOMYTE® MEND-RT, a self-healing, polymer nanocomposite coating for use as an intermediate layer in coating systems on metal substrates. When the coating system is physically damaged, the self-healing intermediate layer repairs the damage autonomously at near ambient conditions, closing and sealing the gap and protecting the metal from exposure to the elements. This new feature of physical gap closing provides an alternative to chemical self-healing observed in chromate coatings. The universal nature of this new technology makes it applicable in any chromate-free coating system where self-healing is desired. This unique feature can lead to preserving the aesthetics of a coated surface or providing active corrosion protection on metal surfaces, without changing the formulation of the conventional coating. The intermediate layer can be easily applied by dip, spray, brush or drawdown methods.

The MEND-RT layer is introduced in a traditional coating system without deteriorating the original properties of the coating stack. The technology is applicable to coatings on both ferrous and non-ferrous metals and alloys, such as magnesium, aluminum, copper, zinc and alloys thereof, and steel. The efficacy of the NANOMYTE® MEND-RT coating was confirmed on aluminum alloys, which are used extensively in the aerospace industry. Two sets of coating systems were applied and compared for corrosion resistance. The first coating stack consisted of a chromate-free corrosion resistant pretreatment, a chromate-free epoxy primer, and a standard polyurethane topcoat. The second stack was identical to the first one, with the additional MEND-RT layer inserted between the primer and topcoat. Corrosion resistance was evaluated using the Salt Spray Test (SST) ASTM B-117 method. Artificial defects were made on the coated panels before exposing them to salt spray. The first set of panels, i.e. without the self-healing inter-layer, exhibited early signs of corrosion with white corrosion buildup in the scribed region. The samples with MEND-RT showed enhanced protection with no signs of corrosion after 1,250 hours of exposure.

NANOMYTE® MEND-RT is available as a two-part product. Given that different applications utilize a variety of coating systems, NEI can undertake an in-house study to evaluate the efficacy of MEND-RT in the specific coating system used by the customer. If needed, the MEND-RT formulation can be customized to suit the requirements of the application. Alternatively, customers also have the option of purchasing MEND-RT and applying the coating at their facilities or through their vendors.

A New Approach To Using Self-healing Coatings

Utilizing a Self-Healing Coating to Impart Enhanced Corrosion Protection to Metals

A traditional protective coating system on a metal substrate generally consists of a pretreatment, primer, and a topcoat. The base metal is pretreated and primed for enhanced adhesion and corrosion resistance. A topcoat is then applied on the primer. Many of the coatings in use today to inhibit corrosion are “passive” in nature, in that they provide only barrier protection and/or promote adhesion between the metal and overlaying paint. While these are important attributes, passive solutions do not offer the same level of protection as coatings that provide “active” corrosion protection. To date, coatings that repair themselves when damaged are limited to either unconventional chemistries or uncommonly used polymers, which require forming a complex molecular network and are too soft to satisfy the mechanical robustness required in a protective topcoat.

An “active” corrosion protection coating, or self-healing coating, can be categorized into two classes according to their self-healing mechanisms: chemical or physical. The traditional chromate-based corrosion protection coating uses hexavalent chromium either in the pretreatment or the primer, or both, to achieve chemical self-healing. In contrast, NEI’s self-healing coating involves physical gap closing and crack sealing, which has the potential to impart performance that matches that of a chromate-based system. Figure 1 illustrates the coating architecture containing NANOMYTE® MEND-RT, a self-healing intermediate layer between the topcoat and the primer. When the coating is physically damaged, the self-healing intermediate layer physically repairs the damage autonomously, closing and sealing the gap and providing an active physical barrier.

Self-Healing Coating System Architecture – (a) A defect occurs in the coating system; (b) The self-healing coating, MEND-RT, closes the defect and prevents further crack propagation.

Self-Healing Coating System Architecture – (a) A defect occurs in the coating system; (b) The self-healing coating, MEND-RT, closes the defect and prevents further crack propagation.

An obvious advantage with the use of a self-healing intermediate layer as shown in Figure 1 is that the topcoat is a standard topcoat, which satisfies all industrial standards. The main function of NANOMYTE® MEND-RT, the intermediate self-healing layer, is to self-repair damages. By separating the topcoat functions and the self-healing function into two distinct layers, a self-healing capability is added to the conventional coating system. The composition of MEND-RT is such that the adhesion between the primer and the topcoat is preserved. The MEND-RT layer can be introduced in any coating system, without deteriorating the original properties of the coating stack. MEND-RT can be used with any coating system applied on ferrous or non-ferrous metals, such as magnesium, aluminum, copper, zinc and alloys thereof, and steel.

The efficacy of the self-healing intermediate layer, MEND-RT, was verified using the standard accelerated test method. A chromate-free, self-healing coating system was applied on aluminum 2024 and 7075 alloys. Aluminum was selected for this evaluation as it is extensively used with chromate coatings in the aerospace and aircraft industry due to its high strength and light weight. Two sets of coating systems were applied and compared for corrosion resistance. The first coating stack consisted of a chromate-free corrosion resistant pretreatment, a chromate-free epoxy primer, and a standard polyurethane topcoat. The second stack was identical to the first one, but had MEND-RT inserted between the primer and topcoat. Corrosion resistance was evaluated using the Salt Spray Test (SST) ASTM B-117 method. Artificial defects (“X” shaped scribes) were made on the coated panels before exposing them to salt spray. The photographs in Figure 2 show the progression of corrosion on Al 2024 and 7075 coupons after 1,250 hours of SST.

MEND-RT_Fig.2

Photographs showing trends in corrosion resistance for Al 2024 and 7075 4” x 6” panels after 1,250 hours in salt spray test – (a) Commercial non-chromate coating system; (b) Commercial non-Chromate coating system with NANOMYTE® MEND-RT.

The first set of panels, i.e. without the self-healing interlayer, exhibited early signs of corrosion with white corrosion buildup in the scribed region. The samples with MEND-RT showed enhanced protection with no signs of corrosion. Examination under the microscope revealed that the defects in the coating were physically sealed by the MEND-RT coating. In addition, the gap closing occurred at near ambient temperature, without any external heat or other stimuli. This is direct evidence that the introduction of MEND-RT enhances the corrosion resistance of a coating system, leading to a longer lifetime of the coating.

NEI introduces NANOMYTE® SuperAi, a Durable Anti-ice Coating


December 3, 2014

Somerset, New Jersey (USA): NEI Corporation announced today that it has introduced NANOMYTE® SuperAi – a nanocomposite coating that imparts anti-icing properties to the underlying substrate. The transparent coating also provides a hard, dense and smooth finish. Surfaces treated with SuperAi exhibit reduced ice adhesion, thereby preventing ice buildup. SuperAi can be applied to a variety of substrates, including plastics, metals, glass, and ceramics. In some instances, a suitable primer may be required for maximum adhesion of the anti-ice coating.

NANOMYTE® SuperAi is a single component coating that is easily applied by dip, spray, or brush. Potential applications include occurrences where ice removal is a challenge (e.g., wind turbine blades, power transmission lines and cables, windshields and other glass surfaces in automobiles). The coating also provides durability and additional corrosion protection. The figure below is an example of how SuperAi can eliminate ice buildup on a substrate.

SuperAi

SuperAi is uniquely engineered so that the treated surface becomes highly slippery and hydrophobic, which facilitates the reduction in ice adhesion. Data obtained so far by our customers and collaborators indicate that SuperAi is effective in mitigating buildup under icing conditions. For example, in a simulated industrial trial, ice accretion on coated and uncoated aluminum conductor cables were measured. The outside of one cable was coated with SuperAi. Both coated and uncoated conductors were subjected to icing conditions for two hours under a regulated spray of water and ice solution at fixed time intervals. Ice accumulation was determined by weighing the cables before and after the test. It was established, in multiple test runs, that the ice accretion was reduced to half with application of the coating. Similar results were obtained on sections of a wind turbine. In addition, in-house measurements of ice adhesion strength with a force gauge show that SuperAi reduces the adhesion tendency significantly.

NANOMYTE® SuperAi can be applied on clean surfaces using a commercial high volume, low pressure (HVLP) spray gun. The coating can also be applied using a roller or brush, where coating is done in a cross-pattern; left to right, then up and down as quickly as possible since the coating dries quickly. SuperAi can be cured at room temperature by exposing the coating to ambient conditions for 6 to 8 hours. Accelerated curing is achieved in 1 hour or less at temperatures in the range of 100 – 150°C. NANOMYTE® SuperAi is available in one liter bottles, 5 gallon pails, and 55 gallon drums.

NEI Development Update on NANOMYTE® TC-5001, a Protective Coating for Zinc-Plated and Galvanized Steel


November 5, 2014

Somerset, New Jersey (USA): NEI Corporation has issued a product update, following the successful introduction of NANOMYTE® TC‐5001 – a nanotechnology-enabled, anti-corrosion coating for zinc‐plated and hot‐dip galvanized (HDG) steel. TC-5001 is a nanostructured composite coating consisting of organic and inorganic phases. It can be used either as a standalone coating or with the water-based, self-healing pretreatment, NANOMYTE® PT-100. In its current form, TC-5001 can be applied on metallic parts that have a zinc-based finish. Recent developments on its effectiveness and usage are outlined below.

Field Trials

Over the past couple of years, TC-5001 and related products have found use in several applications in different industries. Examples include:

Automotive Components and Support Structures

Automotive parts coated in-house were subjected to salt-spray testing (ASTM B117) for over 1,000 hours to test the effects of corrosion; the TC-5001-coated parts showed no signs of white rust. Additionally, parts plated with alloys of zinc and aluminum were also coated with TC-5001 and are currently undergoing field testing.

Examples of structural parts that can be coated with TC-5001 (or related products) for corrosion protection are shown on the right.

Automotive_Components

Outdoor Structures

Strain Insulators

NANOMYTE® TC-5001-coated structures provide significant corrosion protection while supporting power lines in service. The coating has been successfully demonstrated to protect electrical grid components still in service for several months to date.

Hardware Components

Various TC-5001-coated nuts, bolts, and screws were exposed outside for 5 continuous months and showed no visible signs of corrosion.

To the right is a pair of galvanized steel screws after 5 months of outside exposure. The uncoated screw (left) shows the emergence of white rust on the threads while the coated screw (right) is still protected.

Ease of Application and Curing

TC-5001 is amenable to dipping, brushing, and spraying. The ease of application of the coating is illustrated in the following video: Applying TC-5001

Methods of Application

  • Spraying: The coating is applied on clean surfaces using a commercial high volume, low pressure (HVLP) spray gun. Touchup spraying can be carried out to protect small pieces or tight locations using a touch up sprayer.
  • Rolling: Coating is done in a cross-pattern; left to right, then up and down as quickly as possible since the coating dries quickly.
  • Brushing: Brush application is carried out in a cross-pattern; up and down, then left to right.

.

Faster Curing

A new development that was requested by metal finishers was to accelerate the curing of TC-5001. For applications requiring faster cure times, the coating can be brought to “dry to the touch” conditions in a matter of 5 to 10 seconds with thermal curing at 150°C to 200°C. This facilitates easy incorporation of the coating in a production line with continuous moving parts on a conveyer. Once the coating is dry to touch (partially cured), subsequent coatings can be applied and cured together.

New Self-healing Anti-corrosion Coating for Zinc-Plated & Galvanized Steel

March 11, 2014

Somerset, New Jersey – NEI Corporation recently introduced NANOMYTE® TC‐5001, a nanotechnology-enabled, single component, clear coating that significantly improves the corrosion resistance of zinc‐plated and hot‐dip galvanized (HDG) steel. It is amenable to dipping, brushing, and spray coating. The new coating technology is designed to protect zinc‐plated and galvanized steel surfaces from rusting under severe environmental and operating conditions. Applications of the coating technology include protecting outdoor structures (e.g., electrical grid structures, street lights, and lattice beams), hardware (e.g., rods, pipes, nuts, bolts and screws), automotive components and farming equipment. The dense barrier coating can be used as a standalone coating, as well as in combination with NANOMYTE® PT‐100, a self‐healing conversion coating. In salt‐spray tests (SST, ASTM B117), uncoated zinc‐plated steel bolts exhibited white rust in 24 hours and red rust after 168 hours. In contrast, the NANOMYTE® coating provided significant corrosion protection, even after 504 hours of SST. Typically, TC-5001-coated parts show no white rust even after 1000 hours and no red rust even after 1200 hours. SST can be used in conjunction with field testing and online life predictors for coatings on HDG, as prescribed by the American Galvanizers Association (AGA).
