Benefits of SolGel

  • Corrosion resistance
  • Scratch protection
  • Heat resistance
  • UV resistance
  • Resistance to chemicals and solvents
  • Easy-to-clean, lotus effect, anti-fingerprint and anti-graffiti properties
  • No layer infiltration
  • Noncombustible and therefore no production of smoke development

Typical Examples

Architecture


Omexal® Clear Coat is used for facades and public places exposed to weathering and vandalism, as well as for fittings and linings in kitchens and lifts, for example. The paint protects frequently used surfaces from external influences and facilitates their cleaning.

  • Anti-fingerprint and anti-graffiti properties
  • Corrosion protection
  • Abrasion resistance
  • Lotus effect
  • Easy-to-clean

Solar Industry


Weather resistance, long-term reliability and maximum efficiency are of prime importance in solar power plants. Omexal® Clear Coat improves functionality, facilitates maintenance and protects solar reflectors from intensive weather conditions.

  • High transmission or reflection on high-gloss aluminum
  • Corrosion protection
  • UV resistance
  • Scratch protection
  • Heat resistance

Automotive Industry


Omexal® Clear Coat can be used to refine interior fittings and protect rims and decorative parts such as roof blanks, trim strips and exterior mirrors. Thanks to its properties Omexal® Clear Coat is also suitable as a robust protective coating in the engine compartment.

  • Heat resistance
  • Abrasion resistance
  • Scratch protection
  • Cool-touch feel
  • Anti-fingerprint

Cosmetics Industry


In the cosmetics industry the aesthetics and elegance of the packaging reflect the quality of the product. From perfume flacons to lipsticks to cases, Omexal® Clear Coat offers many possibilities to refine the high-quality metal surface of cosmetic packaging.

  • Anti-fingerprint
  • Cool-touch feel
  • Abrasion resistance

application

Omexal® Clear Coat can be applied by dipping, spraying or coil coating on metallic surfaces such as aluminum and steel. Because of its various application possibilities and low viscosity, the SolGel coating is also suitable for coating complex geometric shapes. Compared to conventional coatings Omexal® Clear Coat has a very high yield with its coating thickness of 2-5µm. On average, with a coating thickness of 2µm 1kg of lacquer is enough to coat 100m2 of the surface. The properties of the SolGel coating can be adjusted to the customer's requirements by means of coating modifications such as pigmentation and additives.
