DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Advanced Coatings & Surface Technology-Super-hydrophobic and Hydrophobic Coatings for the Building and Construction Industry" report to their offering.
Hydrophobic and superhydrophobic protective coatings can repel water as they are designed to mimic the nano-scale roughness present in nature such as lotus leaves which aid in lowering the surface energy thereby increasing the water contact angles. In building and construction industry, need for water proof solutions have driven development of emulsions, impregnation and concrete admixtures which can introduce hydrophobic properties even in the capillaries of cement matrices. Exterior protective coating products for roofing tiles and wall structures offer water-repellant surfaces with less water roll-off angles. Multi-functional coatings with longer durability and compatibility to multiple substrates are expected to encourage building and construction companies to adopt new coating products.
The Advanced Coating and Surface Technology TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) provides intelligence on technologies, products, processes, applications and strategic insights on various coatings across industries. This encompasses protective and functional coatings such as antimicrobial coatings, food coatings, energy-saving coatings, smart glazing, hydrophilic, hydrophobic and super hydrophobic coatings, corrosion protection coatings, barrier coatings and paints.
The Materials and Coatings cluster tracks research & innovation trends and developments across specialty chemicals, plastics, polymers, chemicals, bio-chemicals, metals, coatings, thin films, surface treatments, composites, alloys, oil and gas, fuel additives, fibers and several other related technologies and its impact and application across industries.
