NEI Corp. has launched a new subsidiary, American NanoMyte Inc. (ANM), to commercialize its line of self-healing coatings for protecting metal surfaces from corrosion.
Enabled by nanotechnology, these self-healing coatings have the ability to repair themselves if damaged or scratched making them uniquely suited for
corrosion control. The initial focus of ANM is to use the self-healing coatings to prevent corrosion of lightweight metals, including aluminum and magnesium alloys. The coatings are also applicable to steel. ANM offers customized coatings solutions to specific application needs where the ability to self-heal is an advantage.
Over the past two years, NEI has been developing an environmentally friendly (chromate free) technology platform for self-healing coating systems, which include a pretreatment (also referred to as conversion coating), primer and topcoat. ANM has been set up to manufacture and supply these nanocomposite coatings.
