Excilon water-borne coating technology for ceramics
Shanghai Excilon New Materials Co is China's first company to engage in R&D, production and sales of water-borne coating for ceramics and a leader in developing environmentally friendly ceramic coatings, and a coating manufacturer for the Olympic torch used at the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008. Its water-borne coating technology for ceramics uses a sol-gel process and water dispersible nanometer oxide (sol) as a precursor. The coating has high-temperature resistant pigment and inorganic fillers to make it into an inorganic homogeneous coating with a similar structure and performance as enamel produced by low-temperature baking.

This technology solves a problem with low-yield, high-energy consumption of enamel baked at high temperatures and is made of silicon dioxide so it is scratch-resistant, hard, heat-resistant, nonflammable and not easy to volatilize with harmful gases at high heat. It greatly reduces risks to people in case of fire disasters and can be widely used in areas where human health and public safety are a concern. The company’s products are used for baked porcelain aluminum plate that is used in the interior of railway locomotives, subway stations, airports, and railway stations. They are also used as coating for steel plate and stainless steel plate for use in tunnels and column grids and can be seen in many subway trains and tunnels in Shenzhen.
