Sugar Land, Texas - Exousia Advanced Materials, Inc. has started to ship industrial coatings produced at the company's blending facility for its PowerShield Industrial Coatings in Tianjin, China.
Exousia produced a Vistamer based under-carriage coating for Hunan Xiangjiang Group, a major supplier to the rapidly growing Chinese automobile manufacturing industry. "This state-of-the-art coating provides superior sound dampening and increased abrasion resistance,' said Paul Crozier, Exousia's vice president of Industrial Coatings, in the company's 14 Oct announcement.
Vistamer Engineered Particles are used to enhance the performance characteristics of coatings, including urethane and epoxy types, and adhesives. A patented surface-modification process enables Vistamer particles to chemically matrix with various materials to form strong compositions with desirable properties.
Exousia said when combined with PowerShield coatings including urethanes, polyamides and epoxies, the Vistamer material will form new composites "with increased strength, better adhesion, and greater anti-corrosion properties, enhancing the overall performance of the coatings."
"I am excited to announce that Exousia has achieved this newest milestone in the company's international business plan," stated Exousia chief executive officer, Wayne Rodrigue.
