BioPowder.com develops bio-based high-performance additives for ceramic (coating) applications. Especially our hydrophobic powder solutions are effective ceramic paint additive solutions.
Made from 100% sustainable sources, BioPowder.com Olea FP (Functional Powder) is available in the standard micron ranges 0-50 and 0-100. Other micron ranges are available as bespoke micro-powders upon request.
The automotive industry faces numerous challenges with regard to the exterior coating of vehicles. While car paints need to withstand the elements, extreme temperatures and impact, environmental aspects can no longer be neglected by innovative manufacturers. Ceramic paints are widely used throughout the car (coating) industry, which leads R&D experts in this area to look for enhanced solutions. These solutions can come in the form of natural powder additives.
BioPowder.com Olea FP ceramic coating powder grades are available in a hydrophobic form, i.e. as coated, water-repellent dispersion powders. In hydrophobic ceramic coatings, their functions are diverse: first and foremost, they are plant-based, fully natural alternatives for conventionally used microplastics. While hydrophobic polyurethane has long been the top-choice filler, “green” replacements are essential to live up to today’s standards of sustainability.
Due to their high thermal and mechanical resistance, our Olea FP ceramic paint additive line is particularly suitable for cold weather paint and sand texture paint formulations. As the function of coatings in the automotive industry is to protect the underlying layer of paint, the bonding capacity of such coatings is an essential factor. Our ultra hydrophobic powder is a natural fibre additive with reactive groups that can enhance your formulation’s bonding behavior.
Marine protective coatings are designed to be ultra-resistant, mainly to water but also to salt, UV radiation, algae, acid and alkaline substances. Another aspect that makes the development of marine coatings particularly challenging are the extremely high anti-corrosion requirements. This is mainly due to the influence of salt. The marine environment makes vessels very susceptible to corrosion. Sea life, exhaust contaminants and especially sea salt induce oxidation of boat components that are mostly covered with hydrophobic high-performance paints.
Hence, manufacturers of boat and yacht paints require powerful ceramic paint additive solution to create strongly protective layers. BioPowder.com offers a new generation of bio-based and sustainable ceramic paint additive solutions. Our line of fine and ultra-fine ceramic coating powder was created to enhance marine coatings in the following ways:
Maritime ceramic coatings are also characterized by extreme heat resistance. Conventionally made with ceramics powder or ceramic microspheres, they have to live up to the highest demands.
Besides ceramic hydrophobic coating formulations, a wide range of advanced materials involve ceramic that requires powerful fillers, binders and texturizers. Just as car paints, numerous ceramic materials consist of liquid polymers that undergo a curing stage before they are coated. Here, Olea FP ceramic coating powder can be integrated into the polymer matrix in the liquid phase to reinforce the compound in such a way as to add stability and sturdiness.
If coatings are applied, they are mainly protective and/or decorative. Here, texture effects are implemented, e.g. with a non skid additive. The latter can be a coarser grade of BioPowder.com functional powders, i.e. granular particles of variable sizes.
Especially in the medical field, ceramic manufacturers strive to develop solutions that are safe and only minimally chemical. The BioPowder.com team’s role is to help them achieve this goal in a fast and easy way. Apart from being highly effective in multiple functions, our functional powders are absolutely natural, vegan and made in a waste-reducing process.
If you are a R&D professional or a manufacturer of ceramic (coating) materials, we would like to hear from you. We assist in any development stage and supply micro, small and large batches and support your industrial trial. BioPowder.com ships their ceramic coating powder worldwide via sea or air freight.
