Now, car manufacturers strive to create the new technology in order to help reduce carbon dioxide emissions. Not only for the reduction of carbon dioxide, but also for making more fuel-efficient vehicles, many car manufacturers have actively adopted aluminum and magnesium into automotive parts.
In other industries, we have a strong demand for higher corrosion resistance of aluminum, magnesium and other metals.
To solve these issues, OKUNO has newly developed silica-based thin-film coating solution (Protector series) that can achieve high insulation and high corrosion resistance by small thickness.
Silica-based thin coating is a method to obtain ceramic coating films by hydrolysis and condensation polymerization reaction from metallic solutions.
The thin coat can be formed by low-temperature heat treatment from 100 to 150℃ utilizing the chemical reaction (sol-gel process) in liquid phase.
In the process, covalent bond will occur on the surface of substrates between silanol group (Si-OH) and hydroxyl group (-OH), which can improve adhesion strength.
Silica-based thin-film coating solutions, Protector series, are excellent in corrosion resistance and insulation properties.
We have a wide range of products not only for aluminum and magnesium, but also for electronic devices, electronics components, next-generation batteries, magnetic powders, antibacterial purposes and other many fields.
Please feel free to contact us from small-lot prototyping to mass-production.
OKUNO has developed new hard coating solutions that show high antibacterial effect utilizing the technology from silica-based thin film coats.
The new product, TOP NOBAC Pro can make colorless and transparent films on metals to maintain the original textures and feeling with high antibacterial performance.
We offer a wide range of products including texture improvement, pre-treatment, hard coating, prototyping, mass production support, and the outsource of manufacturing.
OKUNO can present infinite possibilities for your tiny little ideas.
We will quickly respond to any of your inquiry to transform your ideas into mass-production, so please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
