Long-lasting aesthetic coating for latex surfaces
Summary:
An Austrian company produces latex products for babies. They are looking for a new coating possibility to improve the permanent aesthetic surface. The new coating shall guarantee a shiny look and a slick surface, withstand repeating boiling/dish washing cycles, have no chemical smell, shall be easy to use, the color shall not change and the coating process should be below 80 degrees Celsius. They are open for technical, research, manufacturing, commercial or licensing cooperation agreement.
Description:
A large industrial company based in Austria with international presence in more than 50 countries is manufacturing day-to-day baby care products.

So far the company provides a shiny and slick look to their latex product surfaces by using silicone oil. But this silicone-oil layer disappears after being boiled or dish-washed (for sterilization purposes) by the consumer. As a consequence, the products lose their glossy look they have in the supermarket shelves through home use. The company is interested in a solution for a permanent shiny/glossy look by a coating.

The coating process can be done either during the wet stage of production of the latex product or on the fully dried product. The latex product wall thickness is around 1.5-1.8 mm.

The coating solution would be of interest for the production of 2.5 million latex baby products per year.

The company is primarily interested in collaborating with a company that has already developed this coating and/or process through a commercial, technical or licensing agreement, so as to incorporate it in its in-house production facilities and its product development. Also a manufacturing agreement by coating at the partners´ facility is possible. However, the possibility of a joint venture on a new coating process or a research development project is also welcome and considered interesting.

Technical Specification or Expertise Sought:
- The coating should be clear/transparent and withstand repeated boiling/ dish-washing cycles.
- The colour/transparency of the coating should not change during or after the boiling/dishwashing process.
- It should be food contact approved and have no chemical smell.
- In addition, the coating process temperature should be below 80 degrees Celsius.

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
- Type of partner sought: partners from the research sector and industrial partners, regardless of size;

- Specific area of activity of the partner: field of coatings and materials, production of food-grade products, food supply chain, including food packaging and contact materials;

- Task to be performed:
a) incorporating the coating process inhouse through a commercial agreement, licensing, technological or manufacturing agreement with industrial partners;
b) manufacturing agreement - the coating can also take place in the facilities of the partner.
b) research, testing and bringing to the production a new coating process with research partners envisaged for research cooperation agreements or new joint ventures with industrial partners.
