Functional paint films for composite manufacturing

Painting is nowadays one of the most time consuming and HSE concerned process in the composite manufacturing industry. Application of liquid paint generates waste and damages the health of workers. Surface preparation, combined with drying times, are a real bottleneck while production rates need to be improved every day.

Corso Magenta is a pioneering SME which is re-inventing paint with a new, green generation of functional films. Our patented process transforms liquid paints into dry films:

Any paint can be used without modification of the original formula: Epoxy / PU based primers & topcoats,

Usage of already qualified paints or proprietary formulations ensure the global performance of the system.
Paint films can be self-supported or complexed with additional layers:

  • Glass, carbon, aramid, PEEK fibers can be semi impregnated in the paint. Combining the paint-resin chemical adhesion to the mechanical bounding of fibers reinforces interfacial strength with the resin matrix,
  • Bronze mesh to provide integrated lightning strike protection,
  • Protective film or peel ply to facilitate demolding and ensure adequate surface roughness,
  • Resistive layer to generate heating as close as possible to the external surface,
  • Electromagnetic shiedling layer, for RF applications.

This is a breakthrough technology to reduce paint related investment, improve our environmental impact, reduce cycle time of composite manufacturing, and incorporate new functionalities in paint systems.

This label « Recommandé par les Professionnels du BTP » rewards the products launch on the market before December 31th, 2014, the evaluation criteria are : their reputation / their performance / their durability / the quality of the service, etc …

For each criterion, the materials are evaluated on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the best score. In order to obtain the label, the materials must obtain a minimum score of 2 out of 5 for each evaluated criterion and an overall average score higher than 2.5 out of 5. The score obtained by NIOULASCO® products therefore ranks them among the must-have products of the sector !

An extensive consultation was launched with the professional community from 4 to 20 January 2017. More than 250,000 companies and 30,000 prescribers were invited to vote to elect the most innovative products and reward the safe and secure future values of construction.

This year 81,259 votes (prescribers and companies) have designated 40 winning products (all categories: Structure, Masonry, Facade / Carpentry, Closure / Technical equipment / Interior fittings / Outdoor Facilities / Business Services). The Labels award ceremony took place on February 2th at the Intercontinental Opera Grand Hotel in Paris, during which our President, Stanislas Chevallier was of course present to receive our trophy.

CORSO MAGENTA participated in the event "Le Top" organised by the Afep


On saturday, CORSO MAGENTA participated in the event « Le Top » organised by the AFEP (Association française des entreprises privées – French Association of private companies) at the Economic, Social and Environmental Council in Paris. A meeting between SMEs and large groups to promote business-to-business exchanges.

An unprecedented economic “speed-dating” between SME / ETI bosses and major French groups, to trigger opportunities for growth. In total, more than 40 major chairmans responded and met the 390 or so privileged SMEs (out of 600 applications), including CORSO MAGENTA.

The opportunity for our President, Stanislas Chevallier, to get in touch with 4 leaders of major French groups.

Enriching and constructive exchanges to accompany us on our road to success !

CORSO MAGENTA is officially member of the CNRFID (Centre National de la RFID – National Center of the RFID) and joins the community of Connected Objects players (RFID, NFC, IoT …).

Since 2008, the National Center of RFID, created at the initiative of  the Ministry of Economy, Industry and Digital, aims at facilitating the adoption and appropriation of contactless technologies (RFID et NFC) by professionnals. With our electromagnetic shielding film WAVESHIELD, a new product in this young and booming market, our company is responding to a problem encountered by many other members.

In the retail sector, for example, where the use of RFID technology is growing rapidly, it may be necessary to create an EM shielding to demarcate areas between the shop and a storage area. This is the kind of need that our solution WAVESHIELD answers.
