Palm Beach, FL – October 3, 2023 – The Global nanocoatings market has been growing steadily in recent years and it appears to continue through this decade. Nanocoatings are ultra-thin layers of chemicals or materials built on various substrate surfaces to protect them from dirt, dust, corrosion, and damage from external environmental factors such as water, moisture, bacteria, friction, heat radiation, and others. The increasing demand from the construction sector is one of the key factors driving market growth. Implementation of the product to support sustainability and conserve energy is significantly boosting the market growth. Additionally, the increasing adoption of abrasion-resistant products from the automotive sector shall fuel the market growth. A report from Fortune Business Insights projected that the global nanocoatings market size, which was USD 7,825.3 million in 2020 is projected to reach USD $39,869.2 million by 2028, exhibiting a CAGR of 22.7% during the forecast period. The report said: “Since the last decade, there have been significant changes in building technologies that are sustainable and sensible towards the environment. Green building is one of the recent technologies that practice sustainability and support environmental sensitivity. The nanotechnological application in green buildings emphasizes energy conservation, waterproofing, corrosion resistance, and VOC eating nanocoatings… The coatings are key materials that can revolutionize insulation methods as they are structures at the molecular level. They are far better and more efficient than traditional insulating materials that work on macro levels such as fiberglass and polystyrene. Even if applied with a few thousandths of an inch thickness, the molecular structure’s air-trapping can exhibit an intense effect. Therefore, the increasing adoption of green infrastructure is expected to contribute to the global nanocoatings market growth during the forecast period.” Active Companies from around the market with current developments this week include: FendX Technologies Inc. (OTCQB: FDXTF) (CSE: FNDX), DuPont (NYSE:DD), Dow (NYSE: DOW), 3M Company (NYSE: MMM), Zentek Ltd. (NASDAQ: ZTEK) (TSX-V:ZEN).
Fortune Business Insights continued: “The building & construction segment accounts for the major market share due to the increasing development and urbanization. The growing adoption of newer and enhanced technological solutions shall further contribute to the segment’s demand. Along with thermal insulation, protective coating for glass, hydrophilic and hydrophobic coatings, they are also employed to avoid bacterial and fungal build-up that can damage the infrastructure and materials that are highly valuable and significant. The Antimicrobial coatings segment application is found in the healthcare and medical sector. These coatings inhibit the growth of bacteria and microbes on surfaces. Therefore, it is widely used in coating surgical instruments and medical devices prone to bacterial and microbial build-up. This is expected to boost the growth of the segment in the forthcoming years.”
FendX Technologies Inc. (OTCQB: FDXTF) (CSE: FNDX) BREAKING NEWS: FendX Successfully Completes Pilot Run to Manufacture REPELWRAP Film using Dunmore’s Commercial Equipment – FendX Technologies Inc. (FSE: E8D) (the “Company” or “FendX”), a nanotechnology company developing surface protection coatings to reduce the spread of pathogens, is pleased to announce that the Company has successfully completed a pilot manufacturing run on Dunmore International Corp.’s (“Dunmore”) commercial manufacturing line and completed its intermediate scale-up objective to demonstrate the REPELWRAP film formulation can be scaled-up and is suitable for automated manufacturing.
“Successful automation of the film production process is a huge testament to our ability to advance our nanotechnology in collaboration with Dunmore and McMaster University.” states Dr. Carolyn Myers, CEO of FendX. “Scaling-up the postage stamp-size lab prototype film that originally took approximately 24 hours to produce in McMaster’s lab to successfully producing sheets of nano-coated film within minutes from the pilot run conducted at Dunmore is a considerable undertaking that we are very pleased to have achieved.”
The pilot run on Dunmore’s manufacturing line involved the continuous processing of a roll of plastic (approximately 5,800 feet in length) that was conveyed along a roller-based line. The output resulted in production of sheets of film covered with the Company’s nanotechnology confirming the REPELWRAP film formulation was successfully coated onto the plastic and is suitable for automated manufacturing. Samples of the film were tested by McMaster and were confirmed to have repelling properties similar to the McMaster lab prototype film. With this achievement, the Company has demonstrated successful scale-up of the original lab prototype, the size of a postage stamp, to creating sheets of REPELWRAP film on Dunmore’s commercial manufacturing line. These positive findings allow the Company to advance to further refinement of the films and conduct further testing, including real world conditions testing. Automation of the manufacturing process is a key step in leading to the production of a commercial product.
“We are pleased to have automated the manufacturing process for the adapted formula of REPELWRAP film in pilot runs on our commercial manufacturing line,” said Nik Taritas, Vice President of Business Development at Dunmore. “These successful pilot manufacturing runs confirm we can produce intermediate size films and we look forward to working with FendX on further refinement using our production processes.”
The Company entered into a development stage agreement with Dunmore, a Steel Partners Holdings L.P. (NYSE: SPLP) operating company to assess scale-up of REPELWRAP film, as previously announced on April 12, 2023. On June 22, 2023, the Company announced they had successfully completed the first phase of the work to adapt McMaster University’s lab prototype formula to Dunmore’s manufacturing process. The second phase of the work was to conduct automated pilot runs on Dunmore’s commercial manufacturing equipment.
