NAMO PVDF Coated Aluminium Coil Sheet
Essentially, Signi coat’s NAMO PVDF consists of a titanium dioxide layer that is applied to the painted aluminium using a coil-coating process. Under the incidence of sunlight, the light-sensitive titanium dioxide acts as a catalyst, even in conditions of low humidity. On the surface, the electrons released by the UV light from oxygen radicals, and these in turn break down the smog molecules into their larmless consitituents.
Smog consists of various nitrogen compounds, generally designated by the abbreviation NO. Nitrogen oxide does not just dirty buildings, it also pollutes the air we breathe. On cladding that is coated with SIGNI COAT’S NAMO, the nitrogen oxide molecules are attacked by the free oxygen radicals and broken down into harmless reaction products such as water and nitrates.
Coming with hydrophobic and lipophobic surface, the NAMO PVDF coated aluminium coils sheets features good water and dirt resistance. The protected object stays clean much longer and can be easily cleaned with pure water.
The lotus effect is the most distinguished characteristic of NAMO PVDF coated aluminium coils sheets. The lotus leaf is never polluted by dirt although coming from silt. The same as lotus leaves, Signi Coat’s NAMO PVDF coated aluminium coils sheets has high water repellency and the dirt on its surface can be easily cleaned away by a heavy rain.

Property comparison between Nano-PVDF coating and PVDF coating
|Coating Type||NANO Coating||PVDF Coating|
|Pollution Resistance||Dust hardly sticks on the panel||Dust sticks easily|
|Easy-cleaning||Dust goes away with bead||NIL|
|Friction Resistance||Over 10,000 times||Several thousands times|
|Acid Resistance||5% HCI, 240 hrs||24 hrs|
|Alkali Resistance||5% NaOH, 240 hrs||24 hrs|
|Oil Resistance||20# machine oil, 240 hrs||24 hrs|
|Weathering||Both paints have prominent feature of weather proofing and color retention.|
The paint layer comparison of PVDF and Nano-PVDF under atom microscope.
The final result shows that the surface paint structure of Nano-PVDF NAMO PVDF coated aluminium coils sheets is denser than that of normal PVDF coated aluminium coils sheets.. So, the former keeps better pollution resistance.
In details: This is how the Signi Color NAMO coating works:
Under the influence of sunlight, a photoelectric effect in the titanium dioxide layer results in the creation of available energy from electrons.
This energy creates free oxygen superanions and hydroxyl radicals that lead to the break down of organic substances.
The superhydrophilic properties come from the increase in surface energy caused by the electrons. The surface attracts humidity with the result that no drops are formed, but a thin layer instead.
The harmful substances that have been broken down slide off this smooth surface or are simply washed to the bottom by rain.
