Functional Foams and Coatings

Topic description: Integration of 2D nanostructures in coatings and thin films

Work package: Functional Foams and Coatings

Description of competences and capabilities sought

The integration of 2D nanostructures in coatings and thin films is a straightforward approach towards functional applications. Various material combinations can be prepared and tested for coatings applications with antimicrobial, oxygen and water vapour barrier properties, and improved physical and mechanical properties, to be used, e.g., in the food industry.

For the first core project of the Graphene Flagship, we are searching for an industrial partner in the field of coating solutions and/or powder coating technologies that will help to formulate functional coatings, paints, inks and varnishes for advanced and industry-relevant applications. The applicant should have a strong track record in the production and processing of inks, paints or varnishes containing nano-additives. This must be showcased by documented success stories on the development and commercialisation of advanced coatings using nano-additives.

The minimum production capability for GRM based coatings must be at least 2-3 kg/batch.

Indicative budget (EC financing) for the period 1 April 2016 – 31 March 2018: 80,000 €
