Technology List of Research and Development
Our Target Line Paint helps make automated driving a reality
Nippon Paint’s Target Line Paint enables LiDAR to recognize black paint, such as paint used on asphalt road surface, by using a technology that controls the intensity of reflection according to the wavelength of light.
Antiviral and Antibacterial Coating
With the simple push of a spray agent, this nano-coating technology provides long-lasting antiviral and antibacterial functionality through a photocatalytic effect, protecting people’s health and providing peace of mind against the growing threat posed by viruses in recent years.
E-coat (Electrodeposition Coating) Technology
This is derived from rust prevention technology that prevents corrosion of auto bodies. We have been working to further reduce the environmental impact, such as reducing social loss attributed to corrosion of steel and reducing heavy metal consumption.
Anti-fog and anti-Reflection technology for face shields
We have imparted anti-fog and anti-Reflection functionality to face shields, whose demand has been growing in the COVID-19 turmoil, by applying interior paint technology for automobiles. The technology contributes to reducing users’ stress.
Technology to extend the service life of coating films by inorganic-organic hybridization
The technology ensures high weather resistance over the long term by taking full advantage of superb weather resistance of inorganic materials and elasticity of organic materials. It can reduce the life cycle cost of buildings.
Highly functional hydrophilization/hydrophilic water sliding technology
Highly functional hydrophilization film contributes to various purposes, such as reducing the energy consumption of air conditioners and ensuring a comfortable usage environment. Recently, we have also developed a hydrophilic water sliding technology characterized by good drainage performance.
