Core Competencies

We provide advanced materials development services based on our experience with several coating technologies. Contact Us for more detailed information on any of our technologies, or send us a Materials Development Inquiry through our Quote Request Form.

Superhydrophobic Surface Treatments

NEI’s superhydrophobic surface treatment imparts superhydrophobicity to surfaces, particularly at above ambient temperatures. In one particular application, the superhydrophobic surface treatment increases condenser efficiency by facilitating drop-wise condensation as opposed to film-wise condensation.

Self-Healing Polymers

NEI has developed a generic self-healing technology that allows polymer coatings to “self-heal” if scratched or cracked. To date, we have demonstrated self-healing in polyurethane-based coatings. We are implementing our technology in various polymer materials for specific commercial applications.

Corrosion Protection

NEI has developed chromate-free, anti-corrosion coating systems for aluminum, steel, and magnesium. These environmentally friendly coatings include pretreatments, primers, & topcoats, and can be custom tailored to provide advantages for specific applications.

Hard, Scratch Resistant Barrier Coatings

NEI has developed transparent coatings for polymer substrates that offer exceptional hardness and scratch resistance. Our environmentally benign coating solutions are waterborne. The composition of the coating can be tailored to suit specific application requirements.

Polymer Coatings for Fabrics

NEI’s additives for fluoropolymer fabric coatings and silicone fabric coatings resist unwanted permeation of gas through fabric, protect base fabric from environmental degradation, and provide chemical and environmental stability.
