About The Paint Industry in Mexico
According to the National Association of Manufacturers of Paints and Inks (ANAFAPYT), Mexico is, after Brazil, the largest producer of paints and coatings in Latin America, with a reputation for high-end products and technology, and internationally recognized standards.
The coatings industry in Mexico produces over 720 million liters (figure for 2012) with a market value of approximately 2.541 billion USD, and whose per capita consumption of 5.6 liters represents one of the highest in the Latin American region. ANAFAPYT predicts that the industry can continue to grow when compared with similar economies such as Brazil, where per capita consumption is more than 8 liters.
"The local industry in Mexico is mature, yet despite being the largest producer in the Latin American region, there is a deficit in areas of specialty coatings," observes Mr. Chavarria, President of Nano Labs. "Currently Mexico imports annually an estimated $155 million of solvent-based paint and 75 million of water base, those are mostly associated with highly specialized and high-performance coatings. The consumer perspective is changing to see painting as investment that protects items, goods and property for longer. We believe there is a huge market opportunity for our products to produce and distribute locally which we are looking to develop long-term value on."
About Nano Labs' NC2012 Nano Paint
NC2012 is an insulating paint coating nanotechnology highlighted by its very low thermal conductivity. NC2012 reduces transmission of temperatures through the coated elements. It has a coefficient of thermal conductivity of K = 0,059 BTU / HR., which ensures coverage of a temperature spread of up to 18 ° Celsius, depending on the material to which the coating is applied. Even under the most extreme sunlight conditions, the coating can create a comfortable living environment.
NC2012 benefits include:
- Fire retardant, providing fire and heat protection at temperatures of up to 1,500 degrees Celsius
- Waterproof protectant
- Protects from ultraviolet (UV) and infrared rays (IR)
- Protects from acid rain
- Prevents the formation of fungi and bacteria
- Auto-wash properties with rain, keeping a shimmering white color
- Non- flammable
- Environmentally friendly
- Reduces corrosion and oxidation
- Can be applied on almost any surface
