Paints and Coatings


Coatings made with organic and inorganic solvents are widely used in daily life. Shayonano, with its extensive expertise in coatings and paints, has developed a variety of nanomaterials that greatly enhance and stretch the performance characteristics of coatings.

One of our synthetic, innovative nanomaterials (SmartHide™) has unique properties – including extremely high surface area and porosity – that enable it to economically enhance the hiding power (opacity) of architectural paints and other coatings. Indonite™ is the best choice for applications where clear coat is desired. Other ShayoNano nanomaterials can be used to control the rheology of paints and prevent the settling of pigments. Shayonano also produces synthetic clays that are organically modified. These clays have excellent compatibility with organic polymers and can be formulated into solvent-based coatings to improve their mechanical properties such as hardness, crack resistance, etc.

Shayonano’s extremely versatile nanomaterials can serve as a platform to make unique and distinctive coatings. The properties that can be incorporated include, but are not limited to:

  • Fire retardency
  • Anti-microbial
  • Hydrophobicity
  • Scratch resistance
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Self-cleaning
  • UV resistance
  • Clear coating on various substrates
