NanoSolutions recently had an opportunity to help out a paint company who
was in dire need to launch their new product in the market.
Paint Manufacture Problem Involving Nanoparticles
The paint manufacturer was working on introducing new nanotechnology based
paint in their product line. The company had problems with controlling the paint
color in each batch, while using the same nanoparticles. The company sought out
NanoSolutions’ expertise to find a solution to the problem.
The team at Allegiance analyzed the nanocomposites used in the paint samples
and studied the complex reactions generated when nanocomposits were mixed with
latex dispersions and additives. Various techniques along with Electron
Microscopic and Spectroscopic Characterization (use testing link) were employed
to understand variation in the particle size and identified possible reasons to
optimize manufacturing conditions. The collaboration with the Allegiance
NanoSolutions provided the paint company with precise knowledge of the
physical characteristics of their product which led to timely reconsideration of
its design to improve performance and process development.
The decision to seek help from Allegiance
NanoSolutions for this analysis resolved the problem quickly and facilitated
the market launch of their new product in time. Additionally, the Allegiance
team was able to provide support during the later stages of product
manufacturing to help make sure that the product characteristics complied with
the standards established.
