NANOMYTE® UV Protective Coatings

Durable Protection from Harmful UV rays

NEI’s UV-Protect (UVP) technology imparts enhanced protection from the effects of sun and weather exposure to maintain the unique properties of the coating when subjected to long-term outdoor exposure. NANOMYTE® coating products with UVP technology have demonstrated their ability to endure a minimum of 1,000 hours of weatherability testing (ASTM D4587).

Polymer and composite materials can be particularly sensitive to the effects of UV exposure, which can have a variety of undesirable effects, such as compromised coating adhesion, which eventually results in cracking and peeling. UV-degraded materials may also change colors, often resulting in the familiar yellowing of plastics and lose mechanical strength, making them prone to failure. NANOMYTE® UVP coatings block UV radiation, which protects surfaces by preventing further penetration of UV light, thereby preserving the material’s strength, coating adhesion, and appearance.

NANOMYTE® UVP coatings are available for purchase in liter and gallon quantities and can be applied by conventional coating processes, such as dipping, brushing or spraying. Additionally, NEI offers in-house coating services for customer’s parts, as well as coating development services, wherein coating formulations are customized to address specific customer requirements.

Do coatings with multiple components need to be purchased separately?

No, all of our multi-component coatings are provided as a ready-to-mix kit. For example, a purchase for 1 liter of coating will include the appropriate weight ratio of all components needed to mix and create 1L of that coating.

How are your coatings applied?

NEI’s Anti-fog coating can be applied using standard coating processes, such as spraying, dipping, or flow coating and is thermally cured. For applications where a primer is necessary (such as polymer substrates), NEI supplies a primer product (NANOMYTE® SR-Primer) which works well with a range of plastics. Application instructions are included on the Technical Data Sheet of each coating.

Do I need a primer?

We have found that all plastics and a few metals (copper, stainless steel, & nickel) will need pretreatment before applying our coatings in order to promote adhesion between the coating and substrate. This can be achieved by either using a primer or treating the surface to be coated by corona or plasma treatment. One exception is our self-healing coatings, which do not need any primer or surface treatment prior to coating. NEI has a couple of primer formulations available, which work well with a range of plastics.

Do you have any UV-cured coatings?

Currently, NEI’s coatings are ambient or thermal cure only. Our UV Protective line of coatings offer enhanced protection from the effects of sun and weather exposure, however they are not UV curable.

Can I have a free sample to see if it works for my application?

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide free samples for a number of reasons. However, our coatings are available for purchase starting as small as 1 liter. We also provide a coating service for a nominal fee, in order to demonstrate how are coating will work for your particular substrate / application.

What is the minimum order quantity for your coatings?

The minimum order quantity for most of our coatings is 1 liter.

How does your Coating Service work?
