Protecting polymers and light weight substrates for engineering energy efficient vehicles.

Automotive leaders’ need for improved fuel efficiency and reduced greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) in turn drives demand for sustainable new surface coating technologies to protect light-weight materials such as 3D-printed engineered polymers and light metal alloy components.

Our Automotive Technology Platforms

Cirrus Paint-free Colour™

Sustainable paint and dye free colour for light metal panels and components.

Paint processes tend to be energy intensive (baking processes, thermal oxidation), GHG intensive (drying and natural gas oxidiser-use) and environmental emission problem areas.

Auto paint shops have often seen fires, and exceedances of paint particulate emissions limits, resulting in fines from regulators.

Our paint-free colour system offers nano-structural surface colouring at ambient temperature, without the air-borne emissions.

Cirrus Hybrid™

Protecting polymers and light weight substrates for engineering energy efficient vehicles.

Cirrus Hybrid™ is a patented family of coating systems for light metal alloy and 3D- printed components, specifically aluminium, magnesium, and titanium, that is 75% thinner, lighter and 5x more energy efficient to apply than competing systems.

Cirrus Mag Defender™

Protecting polymers and light weight substrates for engineering energy efficient vehicles.

Mag Defender™ improves the corrosion resistance and durability of Mg alloys with a sustainable, low cost advanced surface coating.

Until recently, the wider use of Mg alloys has been limited by their susceptibility to corrosion.
