PROPLANET aims to substitute the existing PFAS-type coatings, by designing and optimising 3 innovative solutions
Hydrophobic, oleophobic bio-based coating
Non-stick and anticorrosion protection bio-based hybrid coating, and
Anti-soiling (AS) anti-reflecting (AR) hybrid coating
The developed coatings find industrial applications in
Low Maintenance Glass
Novel coating materials solutions will tackle the problem from a sustainable-business perspective, enabling overcoming the barrier for environmental protection, safety, chemical improvements, and circular value chains. All coatings are designed based on Safety and Sustainability by design (SSbD) concepts and optimised with mathematical computational tools. Moreover, replication studies through the aid of the PROPLANET Replication tool based on data–driven algorithms and multi–objective optimization (MO) will promote the integration of the novel coatings on different applications, supporting their route to market, operating at different conditions, and following an Eco-design thinking.
