Come to think of it! Have you ever envisaged a type of coating that undergoes reversible rearrangement in response to specific stimuli (pH, temperature, humidity, surface contact, etc.), with the polymer rearrangement significantly changing the surface properties? Now these coatings are available. Our futuristic coatings are here. It’s about smart technology! Fossilcote is selling you a lifestyle, an enhancement, value for your money! Such an innovation has the potential to reduce cost, the need for maintenance, and the necessity of dangerous repainting jobs.
Fossilcote smart coatings provide a wide range of other performance attributes in addition to their smart behavior. One of the unique features of Fossilcote smart coatings is their ability to repel water. Their smart coatings are ultra-hydrophobic and can be used in stain resistant clothing, corrosion inhibitors and other items.
Smart coatings can detect temperature changes, corrosion, stress, microbes and a host of other possible issues, and have a wide range of uses including bio-weapon detection (and destruction), electronics, textiles, medicine and corrosion control.

Fossilcote smart coatings are made of hybrid-resin systems. This is a brand new technique that entails combining various tethered resin types, all of which have unique properties. If the right process conditions are met, the coating structure can be organized to ensure each resin type’s functionality is maximized.
The paint and coatings industry has a vast scope for change as has been seen in the recent past. The above innovations by Fossilcote really only represent a fraction of what the industry will produce in the next 10 years. Suppliers and manufacturers are working to bring these new developments into the public sphere to improve performance and of course profit from their endeavor. It is also worth noting that such organizations continue to work towards reducing the environmental impact of their products.
