We are aiming to remove toxic ingredients from coatings and make the manufacturing process more sustainable so that it is conducive to workers, users, and environment.
The benefits of advanced and durable industrial coatings go beyond enhancing the appearance of surfaces. Coatings protect surfaces from corrosion and abrasion caused by the presence of moisture and other potentially damaging substances while extending the lifecycle of industrial equipment. However, the increasing concerns over the safety of coatings and paints that degrade over time and release toxic ingredients in the atmosphere call for safer alternatives. Moreover, most paints and coatings include multiple components, which need to be weighed and mixed in an appropriate proportion. Once applied, the leftovers must be discarded, which results in wastage and pollution. To put an end to such long-standing predicaments in the industry, Flora Coatings develops and manufactures high performance smart sustainable coatings through constant innovation and cutting-edge research and development. Our aim is to provide coating solutions that protect the surface of objects without disturbing their original appearance. Flora Coatings delivers coating solutions that are environment friendly and free of carcinogenic substances. Compared to other coatings on the market, Flora Coatings’ solutions have a much longer shelf life, are ready to use, and can be reused and recycled, thereby reducing the wastage. When applied on any existing painted surfaces, these thin coating solutions preserve the original color of the surface and protect the paint from degrading over time. Flora Coatings has developed next generation of organometallic compounds, which are used in our coatings, to make them adhere to even passive surfaces. Our solutions push electrons to surfaces that do not have active functionality, which, in turn, form a strong covalent bond with the coating to facilitate adhesion.
The R&D team at Flora Coatings plays a crucial role in analyzing market trends and developing solutions that meet the varying and diverse requirements in the industry. For example, the team of experts at Flora Coatings has developed a single component, transparent anti-microbial coating that effectively inhibits the growth of bacteria and germs on various surfaces while keeping their texture and appearance intact. The entire range of Flora Coatings’ products is globally patent protected, and many of its products are tested by the U.S. Army and U.S. Navy. Following an innovation first approach, Flora Coatings has also recently developed a novel, rapid curing scratch-resistant coating for plastic substrates. Moving ahead, the company is on a mission to extend its services to diverse industries, including healthcare, automotive, transportation and agriculture.
