   Ablative       Ablative release coatings react with and slowly dissolve in water causing the coating to slowly wear off, break away, or ablate when immersed. This prevents materials or organisms from attaching to the surface.  Ablative release coatings are also known as self-polishing coatings, self-polishing copolymer (SPC) coating, antifouling paints, foul release coatings, sacrificial coatings, and self-fragmenting coatings. The ablative bottom paints and sacrificial coatings are commonly applied on boat and ship hulls below the water line are called antifouling or fouling release coatings. Fouling or biofouling is the attachment of barnacles, seaweed,  or marine life to the submersed hull of a vessel. Fouling increases a vessel’s hydrodynamic drag and reduces maneuverability resulting in increased fuel usage. Preventing or reducing biofouling saves the shipping industry billions of dollars by reducing fuel consumption costs and lowering the carbon footprint. Traditional ablative release coatings contain a biocidal binder that hydrolyzes in water, which ablates a thin layer of the coating effectively releasing any adhered marine life and leaving behind a clean and polished surface. An organotin compound, tributylin or TBT, forms a copolymer with paint resins resulting in a coating that self-polishes or ablates at a consistent rate during the life of the coating. 
   Hydrophobic / Water Repellent       Hydrophobic surfaces or coatings repel or are not wet by water or water-based materials or other polar solvents, which would include many food products processed in cookware and bakeware. Oils and fats may still wet out and adhere to a hydrophobic surface. Coatings or surfaces with a contact angle of 150° or higher are considered superhydrophobic; with a 180° contact angle surface being perfectly superhydrophobic. 
   Low Friction / Lubricious       Another mechanism for nonstick coatings is the application of a coating with low shear strength, high slip, or a lubricious nature. In other words, low adhesion to a surface can also be accomplished through low shear strength layer. Hexagonal graphite or boron nitride coatings typically have a powdery nature and the hexagonal plates shear easily providing a good slip or release coating. Transition metal dichalcogenides like molybdenum disulfide and tungsten disulfide also have weakly-bound atom planes like graphite, which are easily sheared and provide lubricity. Wax, fluoropolymers, PTFE, and other solid or dry lubricant powders may provide the lubricious or low shear strength component of nonstick or release coatings. Slip or release coatings are useful on the interior surfaces of industrial molds, dies, mandrels, tooling, and release liners. In some industrial applications, the media or product processed or handled needs to wet the contacting surfaces in the equipment, so a low surface energy coating may not be the appropriate choice. A low friction or lubricious coating can have a high surface energy with high wetting. MIT researchers developed a nonstick coating technology called LiquiGlide™, which uses a lubricant or liquid-impregnated surface. LiquiGlide is touted as being a permanently wet and slippery surface technology. 
   Masking Compounds       Masking compounds prevent paint, adhesives, sealants, sealers, primers, and other coatings from sticking to a region of a part such as threaded areas, seal surfaces, or other areas of the part not requiring environmental protection. Masking compounds are also applied to spray booth surfaces, coating hooks, and coating fixtures to prevent coatings from sticking and to allow easy removal of coating build-up after several coating process cycles. Masking compounds are coatings applied by brushing, spraying, or dipping. After the paint dries or the coating cures, the masking layer is peeled, brushed, or washed off the surface. Masking compounds enable selective coating of surfaces for generating patterns, numbering, lettering, signage, texturing, or decorative surfaces with multiple colors, gloss levels, or appearances. Screen coating also uses a masking compound to block regions, which are not to be printed. Rubber, rubberized, or elastomeric masking compounds are used in abrasive blasting or peening applications to allow selective material removal or surface treatment of glass, wood, and metal surfaces. Masking compounds are also used in photochemical or chemical milling processes. In photochemical processing, selective regions of a surface are protected by a mask coating while the unmasked regions are then etched to selectively remove material. 
   Oleophobic / Oil Repellent       Oleophobic surfaces or coatings repel or are not wet by oils, fats, or similar organic-based materials (non-polar solvents), which can include many food products processed in cookware and bakeware. Water, salt, and sugar type products may still wet out and adhere to a oleophobic surface. 
   Sealer / Surface Sealant       Sealers are coatings used to seal surfaces. Sealants are used to seal joints or gaps between surfaces. Some seal coatings can be used to seal or form a barrier on a surface, and to seal joints. 
   Stop Offs       Stop offs or stop off compounds prevent braze or solder from flowing over and sticking to a region of a part such as threaded areas, seal surfaces, or areas not part of the joint. Stop offs also prevent parts from being joined accidently during furnace brazing or soldering. Stop offs also prevent carburization, nitridation, galvanization, and other high temperature metallurgical coatings or treatments on specific regions of a part. Stop offs are high temperature coatings applied by brushing, spraying, or dipping. After thermal processing, the stop off is brushed or washed off the surface. 
   Superhydrophobic       Superhydrophobic coatings exhibit exceptional water repellence and aversion to wetting, even more so than hydrophobic coatings. Coatings or surfaces with a droplet contact angle of 150° or higher are considered superhydrophobic; with a 180° contact angle surface being perfectly superhydrophobic.

Technology
   Technology       
   Your choices are...         
   Film Drying / Air Setting       Film drying or air setting forms a continuous, dry film from a binder which can be pigmented. The evaporation of the solvent, carrier, or thinner sets the coating. 
   Multicomponent       Multicomponent coating systems use a polymeric protective film that applies a prime coat, intermediate coat, and finish coat. Multicomponent coatings can consist of multiple liquids (A+B or A+B+C) that are blended together just before an end-use application. Some of the components can be catalysts, curing agents, retarders, accelerators, fillers, reinforcements, colorants, or specific property enhancers. 
   Reactive / Moisture Cured       Reactive resins are single-component adhesives that are applied in the same way as hot melt adhesives. The resins react with moisture to crosslink and polymerize, resulting in a cured material. Polyurethane reactives (PUR) are examples of reactive resins. Certain silicones and cyanoacrylates also react with moisture or water to cure the adhesive or sealant. 
   Thermoplastic       Thermoplastic coatings are powders that melt repeatedly when heated. They solidify when cooled. 
   Thermoset       Thermoset coatings are powders that undergo a chemical reaction during the cure cycle when heated. 
   Radiation Cured - Electron Beam       Coatings are cured through electron beam irradiation. Electron beams can penetrate through substrates. However, partial vacuum or vacuum systems are often required to prevent the electron beam's energy from being absorbed by air before reaching the substrate. 
   Radiation Cured - UV Irradiation       Coatings are cured through ultraviolet (UV) irradiation. UV-curable coatings can increase productivity by dramatically reducing process time because UV curing coatings can set in seconds. Thermally-cured coatings may take minutes to hours to dry or set.

Chemistry
   Chemistry      The resin is the film-forming portion of the paint.
   Your choices are...         
   Ceramic Coating       Ceramics consist of oxides, carbides, nitrides, carbon, and other non-metals with high melting points. Refractory ceramic coatings are sprayed onto the insides of kilns, and on elements to lengthen life and improve efficiency. Coated elements are more efficient and may last up to 10 times longer than uncoated elements. Although ceramic coatings are expensive, they provide long-term savings. 
   Fluoropolymers (PTFE, FEP, MFA, etc.)       Fluorine is the most electronegative element, so fluorine and fluoride have very minimal affinity for accepting electrons from other elements. Fluoropolymers and fluorinated surfaces have very low surface energy. Fluoropolymers are a family of engineering plastics characterized by high-thermal stability, low friction, and almost universal chemical stability. PTFE and other fluoropolymers are chemically inert and chemically resistant. Fluoropolymers include polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), fluoroacrylate, fluoroeurathane, fluorosilicone, fluorosilane, trichloro(1H,1H,2H,2H-perfluorooctyl)silane (TCS), octadecyltrichlorosilane (OTS), heptadecafluoro-1,1,2,2-tetrahydrodecyltrichlorosilane, fluoroPOSS, Polytetrafluoroethylene, PTFE, is a very widely used fluoropolymer. PTFE contains fluorine and recurring tetrafluoroethylene monomer units. Teflon®, a popular brand of PTFE and other fluoropolymers, is a registered trademark of Chemours, a spin-off of the DuPont Company. Additional examples of fluoropolymer plastics, elastomers or compounds include fluorinated ethylene-propylene (FEP), fluoroelastomer tetrafluoroethylene-propylene (FEPM),  perfluoroalkoxy (MFA, PFA), polyvinylfluoride (PVF), polyvinylidenefluoride (PVDF), polychlorotrifluoroethylene (PCTFE), polyethylenetetrafluoroethylene (ETFE), polyethylenechlorotrifluoroethylene (ECTFE), and chlorotrifluoroethylenevinylidene fluoride (FPM, FKM). 
   Glaze / Glass Enamel       Glazes or glass enamel coatings are fused onto ceramics, metal, or porcelain. Glazes are inorganic enamels based on a fused silicate composition. Glass or porcelain coatings have glass-like properties, such as high heat and electrical insulation. 
   Inorganic (Ceramic, Conversion, Glaze)       The compound or material system is based upon an inorganic chemistry. Completely inorganic coatings contain both an inorganic binder and inorganic fillers. Inorganic coatings also include salts or inorganic chemical solutions that react with a substrate to convert a layer into a protective phosphate or chromate layer. These inorganic coatings are called conversion coatings. Coatings may contain a resin or polymer binder, or a base filled with fine, inorganic aggregates, or mineral powders. The organic portion may evaporate or burn-off during curing or end-use. 
   Metal / Metal Filled       The coating contains metal or is filled with metal. 
   Resin Base / Polymer Binder       Resin bases and polymer binders are translucent or transparent and solid or semi-solid. They contain synthetic and natural materials. Examples of resin bases and polymer binders include acrylic, alkyd, copal ester, epoxy, polyurethane, polyvinyl chloride, and silicone coatings. 
   Rubber / Elastomer Based       Rubber is a natural or synthetic material that can quickly and forcibly recover from large deformations. Rubber is used as a resin in elastomer-based coatings. 
   Silicone       Silicone contains a unique polymer system that can be a very effective release coating.

   Nanoparticles / Nanomaterial?       Nanoparticles, nanorods, nanofillers, nanofilaments, nanofibrils, nanostructured surfaces and other nanomaterials are increasingly utilized to produce coatings with unique properties such as superhydrophobicity, omniphobicity, superwetting, and superlubricity. Omniphobic coatings may utilize a combination of non-polar molecules and polar molecule grafted onto filler particles or nanoparticles, which are then dispersed in the coating. Attaching the polar and non-polar molecules to nanoparticles or fillers prevents the “oil in water” separation which would occur if the polar and non-polar liquids were just blended. Some superhydrophobic coatings use nanostructured surfaces, nanoparticles, nanosized fibrils, or nanorods coated with a very hydrophobic wax or wax-like material. Wenzel’s model and the Cassie-Baxter law are used to account for the impact of nanostructured surface roughness on the contact angle and wetting.

Features
   Features       
   Your choices are...         
   Flame Retardant / UL 94V-0 Rated       Coatings are flame-retardant in accordance to Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. (UL) Flame Class 94V-0, or other equivalent ISO standards. These materials reduce the spread of flame or resist ignition when exposed to high temperatures. They also insulate the substrate and delay damage to the substrate. Flame retardant coating is often applied to textiles, fabrics or other materials to enhance the flame retardancy nature of the material. 
   Anti-Static / ESD Control       Anti-static coatings and electrostatic discharge (ESD) control coatings are used to minimize static electricity in sensitive environments. 
   Chemical / Oil Resistant       Chemical-resistant coatings resist acids, alkalis, oils, and general chemicals. 
   Conductive       Conductive coatings form an electrically conductive layer. 
   Dielectric       Dielectric coatings are made from nonconducting materials and are used in optical applications. High-reflection coatings consist of a stack of alternating layers of high-and-low refractive-index materials. Each layer in the stack has an optical thickness of a quarter-wave at the design wavelength. 
   Corrosion Inhibiting / Rust Preventive       Corrosion-inhibiting or rust-preventive coatings prevent moisture from reaching the metal or underlying substrate, or provide a sacrificial layer. Resin-based coatings are both corrosion and chemically-resistant, and provide a barrier to protect the substrate. Zinc or aluminum coatings provide a sacrificial layer that galvanically protects the ferrous surface, even if the layer is breached.  Zinc phosphate, barium metaborate, and strontium chromate (all pigments) are common ingredients in corrosion-inhibitive coatings. These pigments absorb any moisture that enters the coating film. Lubricant, oil, and grease coatings also provide a water-repellent barrier to inhibit corrosion. Rust-preventative coatings are designed to minimize rust or iron-alloy corrosion when applied directly to ferrous metals such as carbon or alloy steels. 
   EMI / RFI Shielding       Coatings provide shielding from electromagnetic interference (EMI) or radio frequency interference (RFI). 
   Heat Resistant / High Temperature       Heat-resistant coatings and high-temperature coatings resist damage from heat, or are formulated for use in high-temperature environments. 
   Protective       Protective coatings are designed to protect substrates and surfaces. 
   Touch-Up       Touch-up coatings are used to repair and match the original coating where it has been damaged by scratching, corrosion, abrasion, erosion, scuffing, denting, chipping, delaminating, or other processes. The touch-up coating material should have good adhesion to damaged and prepped substrates and undamaged paint surfaces. The color and functional protective properties should match those of the existing paint or coating on the substrate. Touch-up coatings are available in small containers, aerosol spray cans, and pen forms. 
   Waterproof / Water Repellant       Waterproof or water-repellant coatings are clear, exterior finishes that cause water to bead-up on the surface. They also minimize the penetration of water into the substrate. 
   Wear Resistant (Abrasion / Erosion)       Wear- or erosion-resistant coatings are designed to resist surface degradation via friction. Wear is caused by a sliding action between two or more components. Erosion is surface damage or material removal caused by the impact of particles or slurries. 
   Weather / UV Resistant       Weather or ultraviolet (UV) resistant coatings are weather-resistant or protect against damage from UV radiation. 
   Other       Other unlisted features.
