Surface protection is a key area in the luxury car market both for protection from UV, wear, heat; promotion of adhesion; and reduction of engine friction. The overall world automotive paints and coatings market was estimated to be $7.75 billion in 2010 and nanomaterials will play a key role in future growth.

Desirable functional properties for the automotive coatings industry afforded by nanomaterials include:

  • Scratch resistance (alumina and silica nanoparticles)
  • Anti-fingerprint (silica nanoparticles)
  • Self-cleaning (Nano-Tio2, nano-silica)
  • Chemical resistance (CNTs, graphene)
  • UV resistance (zinc oxide, cerium oxide, titanium oxide, iron oxide nanoparticles)
  • Abrasion resistance (silica and alumninium oxide nanoparticles).

Applications include:

  • Hydrophobic and oleophobic anti-fingerprint coatings in automotive displays
  • Anti-fingerprint mirror and interior surface coatings
  • Scratch-proof coatings
  • Wear resistant nanocoatings for engines
  • Lubricant additives
  • Self-cleaning coatings on glass
  • Anti-corrosion engine coatings
  • Anti-bacterial interior trim and upholstery coatings
  • Anti-icing coatings.
