DEVELOPMENT OF NANO-STRUCTURED MATERIALS AND COATINGS FOR THE CONSTRUCTION SECTOR

DEVELOPMENT OF NANO-STRUCTURED MATERIALS AND COATINGS FOR THE CONSTRUCTION SECTOR

The aim of this project is to develop new nano-structured construction materials with better properties and new characteristics in service, with a high technological impact and broad commercial possibilities. The intention is to obtain construction materials with new functional characteristics (water-repellent, optical, biological, fire-proof) that enhance new applications of various construction elements. This would offer new possibilities both in the design of buildings and in the development of new construction possibilities in architecture and construction.

From a technological perspective, the development of nano-structured functional coverings would open the door to the development of new materials capable of offering a wide range of functional possibilities and, therefore, new products which would have an important impact in Europe. Furthermore, this project represents an opportunity to analyse the industrial viability of new nano-technologies that are being used by the participants.
