Anti-carbonation coatings are used as means of preventing carbon dioxide from entering concrete. The principle of anti-carbonation coatings is that they are porous enough to let water vapor move in and out of the concrete but the pores are too small for the large carbon dioxide molecule to pass through. There are anti-carbonation coatings which should be applied after carbonation repairs to stop further carbon dioxide ingress.
Anti-Fungal coating provides hard coated surface. It gives long lasting protection against algae and fungal growth in damp and humid conditions. This coating was developed for glazing applications such as conservatories and other high visibility areas. Here, copper/polymer nanocomposites are proposed as anti-fungal spinnable coatings with controlled copper-releasing properties.
Anti gel additives are used to keep all types of fuels and diesel oils flowing in cold weather. Anti gel additives interfere with the formulation of wax crystals in the fuel, the pour point of the fuel can be reduced by as much as 25 degrees. Fuel flows freely through lines and filters without the need for tank heaters. The features of these additives include reduction of pour point, gelling inhabitation, fuel stabilization and less moisture.
Anti-glare coating is the optical coating. It is a multi layer coating with bonds into the glass. Anti glare coating is conductive for 99.99% static ELF/VLF dissipation. The coating eliminates the glare. Examples of anti-glare coatings are Ti02-Ag, and Cd-Sn-Ox. A black coating of nickel phosphorous reflects only 0.2 percent of incident light at 630 nm.
