Final Report - MULTIPROTECT (Advanced environmentally friendly multifunctional corrosion protection by nanotechnology)

Project ID: 11783
Funded under: FP6-NMP


This is the final report for the 'Advanced environmentally friendly multifunctional corrosion protection by nanotechnology' (Multiprotect) integrated project with the objective to find replacements for hazardous, carcinogenic chromium (VI) based corrosion protection materials. The aim was the development of multifunctional, generally applicable and environmentally-friendly corrosion protection systems on the basis of nanostructured materials with nanoparticles as functional design elements.

The report details the development and results of the project, with a focus on the last year of the project. During year three of Multiprotect, the consortium made a big step forward to the industrial applicability of the developed coating systems. Beside further optimisation of developed systems the technology phase was continued and three different protection materials (sol-gel based lacquers, protection systems based on conductive polymers and substitutions for hard chromium coatings) were transferred to the industrial partners for preindustrial testing.
