Nanoreinforced biobased resins as coatings on aluminum : from solvent-free production process to sustainable applications

Programme d’excellence de Wallonie

Coordinator : Université de Mons
UCLouvain promotors : Bernard Nysten, Arnaud Delcorte, Christian Bailly (IMCN / BSMA), Thomas Pardoen (IMMC)

FLYCOAT will innovate in the areas of wear resistance, corrosion resistance, thermal and electrical material properties, in particular for aerospace applications. The project encompasses the synthesis of new bio-based resins as well as their performance optimization by inclusion of nanofilllers, for applications on modified metallic surfaces.
