Composites Paint Films

Painting is nowadays one of the most time consuming and HSE concerned process in the composites manufacturing industry. Application of liquid paint and sanding 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.

Transforming Liquid Paint into Dry Paint Films

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:

Key benefits of dry paint film for composite manufacturing :

  • Paint layer functionalization
  • Precise paint thickness control
  • Reduce cycle-time in composite manufacturing
  • Eliminate worker exposure to VOC
  • Reduces painting’s environmental impact

Dry Paint Film functionnalization :

  • 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 RFID applications.

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

/ heating

For every surface which needs to be warmed

When heat must be integrated into the surface of the materials.

Efficiency is optimal because heat loss is reduced, the temperature is homogeneous, stable and controlled over the entiresupport.
