Upgrading the Paints and Coatings Industry

Technology Overview

HEM’s CRT when combined with coating additives such as corrosion inhibitors, allows them to be released only as needed, throughout the desired treatment period, improving the coating’s overall performance and environmental compatibility.

 

Potential adopters of this technology are expected to be paint and coatings manufacturers; they specify the additives and purchase the customised CR additives from HEM for their usage. As customisation is required, this technology is classified as TRL7 and at the prototype level.

Unique Features

  • Entire encapsulation process takes place at room temperature

  • Ability  to encapsulate wide array of additives from liquids to solids

  • Highly tuneable release profile

  • CR microspheres are suspended in compatible solvent with binder system for easy incorporation

  • CR encapsulation material is completely biodegradable

Creating Value for Partners

HEM’s value proposition spans from R&D to production, supporting its partners with quick and scalable R&D and subsequently a seamless transition to early stage market penetration, backed by robust strategy for eventual scale up.

- Quick and Scalable: Being a versatile platform, HEM CRT can  be quickly adapted to a new application and easily scalable to different actives within the same application.

 

- Fast Market Penetration: HEM’s in-house manufacturing capabilities of up to 7 tons/month supports the partner’s market penetration in a fast and low risk manner.

 

- JV for scaling up: Once the innovation has proven market acceptance, HEM scales up volumes through JV with a manufacturing partner
