Tinta de base natural, energeticamente eficiente e com propriedades funcionais distintivas direcionada ao setor automóvel
Biopaint intends to respond directly to a gap in the market, more specifically, in the automotive painting segment, through the R&D of a polyurethane-based paint formulation, with high incorporation of natural or renewable monomers, energy-efficient and with differentiating functional properties that can be used in the demanding automotive industry.
In fact, conventional solutions available on the market, as well as the technological paradigm/methodology for applying paint to motor vehicles, have a great impact on the environment, whether resulting from the type of compounds used and the high number of resulting residues, or in terms of energy efficiency, since it requires a large consumption of energy in the end-to-end processes.
Hence, the project foresees a set of R&D activities, which will focus on three essential factors, namely, (i) the synthesis of renewable polyurethanes, as well as surfactants from industrial waste, (ii) the development of nanomaterials (additives) that configure differentiating functional properties, namely “self-cleaning”, “anti-dust”, absorption of ultraviolet radiation, and even, the reflection of infrared radiation, and finally, (iii) the development of a biopaint formulation having in its composition the molecules previously developed, guaranteeing a final product with distinguished functional characteristics with high added value.
