Spray Coating

A polymer is a large molecule composed of many repeated subunits. Their large molecular mass relative to small molecule compounds produces unique physical properties, including toughness, viscoelasticity, and a tendency to form glasses and semicrystalline structures rather than crystals.

On August 14, 2004, VitroTech and Xiom announced the discovery of significant technical synergism, combining the technological breakthroughs of both companies, producing a polymer spraying process that offers unique combinations of time-tested coatings. The Xiom 1000 spray gun deposits mixtures of plastics, plastic additives, and various chemicals to substrates of any type for prolonged life of structures and materials. Xiom's technological breakthrough is transforming the performance and cost structure of powder coating processes. At the same time, the wide range of engineered polymer coating materials compatible with the Xiom spray process provides ground-breaking technology.

VitroTech's product, Vitrocote, affords this technology a wider range of polymer selection and provides enhanced rheology of the polymers at favorable process temperatures, assuring high flow without any performance loss in the polymer coating. The window of operation with many different polymers is much wider in the Xiom process with the enhanced benefits derived from Vitrocote performance.

The Xiom process features a cost-effective system to apply polymer coatings, no VOCs (volatile organic compounds), easy application, low flammability, and 7 to 10 times more durability than paint. The application system consists of a completely portable console, spray gun, hoses, and powder feeder. Coatings applied with this system cure instantly at ambient temperatures and can be applied to wood, brick, masonry, steel, glass, nonferrous metals, and ceramics.

VitroTech is a materials technology and research company with rights to purchase, process, and sell approximately 35 billion pounds of rare amorphous aluminosilicate deposits. Aluminosilicate minerals are minerals composed of aluminium, silicon, and oxygen, plus countercations. They are a major component of kaolin and other clay minerals.
