When we think of paints we usually think of rainbow colors spread everywhere on a canvas or on buildings. Paints and coatings are no longer limited to decorative applications. It’s not just houses that get painted. Virtually all consumer durable products, as well as all types of industrial equipment, have to be coated in some way or another. Coatings are applied everywhere from prodigious bridge connecting shore of river to even a wrapping of chocolate. Nowadays paints and coatings have found its place in various sectors and various applications. 40% of the coatings are used to decorate and/or protect industrial products. Without coatings, product life might be shortened drastically and many products would not even be marketable.
Coating is a film forming substance which protects a substrate (i.e. a surface of material) against potentially damaging elements in its environment, as well as enhancing its appearance. Coatings are applied to the application to protect them from corrosion, abrasion, chemical reaction, etc. In the protective coating industry, certain coats have different functions for different industries, like reducing internal temperatures for the storage tank industry, or camouflage for military applications.
Paint industry is undergoing all transfusion in recent years. The multiplicity of cement paint, furniture enamel and epoxy paints, ponder coatings, and high performance coatings which are gaining popularity. The market has shown healthy increase in recent years. The paint and coating industry in the United States, Western Europe, and Japan is mature and generally correlates with the health of the economy, especially housing, construction, and transportation. In Japan, however, consumption of paints and coatings will experience relatively slow growth during this period (0.5%), as a result of no growth in major markets such as automotive OEM, machinery, and appliances.
Various equipments used in aerospace, defence, marines, automobiles, boats, etc. are coated with different coatings which are specially made to protect these equipments. These equipments are often damaged by animals, insects, birds, etc. Equipments like missiles, aircraft, junction box, panels, etc. are very sensitive devices. Any damage caused to them can lead to mechanical disruption, communication loss, fire hazard, monetary loss, etc.
Insects like mold, wood-decay fungi, termites, etc. damage wooden objects. There is a wide variety of pest organisms that can cause damage to buildings and inconvenience to occupants. Only in the US, pest infestations cause millions of dollars in property damage a year, the worst damage occurring in coastal areas, such as Florida.
Animals like mice, squirrels are attracted to the attractive color of the coating. These animals have two pairs of growing incisors which grow throughout their life and to keep them in check they chew on hard objects. This can further damage the technical and mechanical aspects of that object. Most bird droppings, especially those of pigeon and gull, fade paint finishes by actually damaging the protective coating and the paint itself. The longer the droppings are allowed to sit on the paint, the more damage it will do.
These pests attack on the application and damage the aesthetics, coatings of the application, etc. Conventional methods like the use pesticides, moth balls, etc. are not proven to be effective to prevent the damage caused by these pests. Pesticides are toxic in nature. They kill target as well as non target species. They are hazardous to human health as well. There is a need of non toxic non hazardous solution to prevent damage caused by these pests.
C Tech Corporation can offer a solution to overcome this problem. Combirepel™– anti rodent and anti insect polymer additive is an ideal solution to repel insects like termites, ants, grasshopper, beetles, bugs etc. and rodents like rats, mice, squirrel, beaver, gopher etc. While Termirepel™ works well aginst a wide set of insects. Combirepel™ concentrate can be blended in polymer base coatings. Combirepel™ lacquer can be directly coated on the wooden, metal application. It can be also added to the flooring to prevent the damage.
Combirepel™ follows 6 pronged strategy which is extremely effective on insects as well as rodents. It is thermally stable and does not degrade on exposure to heat and sunlight. It does not kill or harm the insect but repels them. It is RoHS, RoHS2, RoHS3, REACH compliant and FIFRA exempted.
