Preparing ZnO nanopaint for marine antifouling applications

Wednesday, 24 June 2015

Nanomaterials open up tremendous opportunities in the development of commercial products for house-hold to industrial applications.

In a study, Korean researchers are reporting the development of zinc oxide (ZnO) nanopaints for the prevention of marine biofouling.

New insights into the maritime industry

The ZnO nanoparticles prepared by mechanical milling method are used as a pigment in the paint formulation with alkyd resin binder. The prepared ZnO nanopaint is characterised using X-ray diffraction and Raman analysis. The in situ marine antifouling tests confirmed the anti-fouling properties of ZnO nanopaint surfaces. These results ensure that ZnO nanopaint can create new insights into the maritime industry.

The study is published in: Journal of Industrial and Engineering Chemistry.
