Smart nanocontainers (project name SIGMA - smart pigments for sustainable, eco-friendly corrosion protections) is a market-oriented research and development project of the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces in Potsdam. It focuses research and development efforts on establishing a new generation of anti-corrosion coatings.



nano kgelchen_cutUsing recent scientific achievements in the fields of nanotechnology and colloid chemistry, our team develops self-healing coatings for a wide range of anti-corrosion applications.
We offer enhanced protective performance and durability of coatings as well as improved environmental sustainability.
