Synthesis, characterisation, and application of nano coatings with exceptional properties such as:
i) high hydrophobicity;
ii) high corrosion and UV radiation resistance;
iii) high adhesion properties, and
iv) improved abrasive resistance.
The nanomodified coatings production is studied following different experimental procedures, like the mechanochemical synthesis of nanoparticles and their posterior incorporation or impregnation with the resin. Different tests to study the corrosion and UV radiation resistance, water absorption, adhesion properties and abrasion resistance of concrete probes coatings are designed.
Ability to perform a variety of tests focused on the corrosion resistance of devices such as:
