Knowledge-Based Company in Iran Produces Fire-Resistant Paint

TEHRAN (FNA)- An Iranian knowledge-based company produced a new type of fire-resistant and environment-friendly paint with high adhesion to metal surfaces.

“We started production of different types of mineral-based fire-resistant coatings with the aim of developing technology and achieving self-sufficiency in the production of these products in the country, and we have turned into one of the top companies in this field by using the latest scientific findings, advanced laboratory equipment and application of a new formulation,” Siavash Qaraviski, the CEO of the company, said.

“These paint materials are environment-friendly and can be applied to equipment with any complex geometry. The use of these fire-resistant paint materials preserves the appearance at high temperatures,” he added.

“Fire-resistant paints have high adhesion to the metal surface. They do not produce smoke and toxic gases and are highly moisture resistant and resistant to fire and growth of algae and bacteria,” Qaraviski said.

In a relevant development in August, the Iranian airlines use special paints produced by the country’s nanotechnology firms as a coating for the outer surface of the aircraft used to carry people and cargo.

“Using Iran-made nano paints on the Iranian airplanes has increased in the past few years and our share of this market has jumped from 10% to 25%,” Nobakht Qaradaqi, the CEO of Goharfam production and industrial company, said.

He added that many Iranian airlines, including Mahan and Zagros, use the home-made nano paint to cover their airplanes’ outer surface.

Qaradaqi said that the products of the company are all manufactured under international standards.

Iranian scientists could stand atop the Middle-Eastern states in the development and advancement of nanoscience and nanotechnology.
