Abstract

The VTT-Aalto-FIOH-IST joint RESCOAT (Novel Responsive Surfaces based on Active Hybrid Coatings Utilizing Encapsulation Technologies) project focuses on the development of novel active and responsive surfaces based on hybrid paint and thin coatings with encapsulated active agents. The developed polymeric or silica capsules are either slowly releasing or responsive to the external stimulus. The project aims to provide feasible functional solutions against e.g. biofouling, flare-up (delayed), wearing and scratches (self-healing) or ice nucleation. The developed coating and encapsulation technologies increase competitiveness of the products especially in the fields of construction, processing, electronic devices, machinery, infrastructure and transportation.
