Development of nano-particles mediated by transition metals and their characterization. Usage of these nano-particles to modify the properties of water and solvent-based paints and coating products.

Please note that the job is no longer active!

In the frame of the European project FP7-NMP-2012-SME-6 Grant Agreement 310483 - SkyCoat, the following research is requested, aimed at the realization of nano-composite materials for usage in architecture, construction and lighting:

- Selection of inorganic charges (NPs) available in the market, which are suitable to increase the surface properties (hardness, scratch resistance, thermal stability, etc.) of transparent both water- and solvent-based paints and films

- Chemical and physical characterization (dimension, shape, aggregation, dispersion capability) of the selected and purchased charges (Nano-particles) in both water and solvent

- Inclusion of the selected charges (nano-particles) into water- and solvent-based paints

- Transformation of these paints into films

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
