Objective

The proposed project aims to the development of an ecological and innovative coating for composite parts which may be able to eliminate the styrene emissions from the workplace. Additionally, this type of coating will deliver improved production perfomance in terms of quality and dramatic reduction of associated operational costs which currently burden the progress of composite materials worldwide.
Very much like the painting industry changed in the 1950’s to the use of dry powders in order to replace existing liquid paints; the liquid gel coats used in the composites industry may be replaced likewise with a proper dry powder technology. This project is meant to prove this fact as well as providing the tools to implement this novel material into a real production of composite parts.
The combination of new developments in efficiently heated tools, mould design and reinforced preforms with this ecological coating will provide an excellent platform to modernizing current composites manufacturing technologies.
