At this year’s PaintExpo, Mankiewicz introduced two products designed to meet the demands of “digitalization” and sustainability trends: the Celerol EMV coating system, which is designed to shield against electromagnetic radiation, and Alexit Unique Chrome, a chrome-replacement paint.

Suited to address the electromagnetic compatibility of electronic devices, the Celerol system contains a high proportion of conductive particles, and the painted surface provides a shield based on Faraday’s cage effect. So, by painting the inside of the plastic casing of a medical device, for example, the coating protects the electronics within from external electromagnetic interference, the company says.

The Alexit system, a single-layer hexavalent chromium alternative, provides a metallic look in a variety of gloss grades and color tones. According to the company, it already fulfils the specifications of numerous automotive OEMs, and is a practical substitute for the use of chrome paint in other industrial sectors.
