VELOX - new nanotechnology solutions in dispersion

VELOX in Hamburg started the cooperation with Nanophase this year and is therefore moving towards an innovative market branch of Nanotechnology


The use of nanoparticles has become an innovative and new technology to enhance coating properties. Nano describes a scale 1000 times smaller than that of present elements of the micrometer-sphere (1nm corresponds to the millionth part of a mm). The extremely large exposed surface area of nanoparticles is one reason for the high enhanced coating performance.


Therefore VELOX, as a European raw material specialist offers with its partner Nanophase from Illinois, USA two different innovative products in ready to use dispersion form (no powder-form) to improve scratch and UV resistance:


- NanoArc® Aluminum Oxide for long term scratch and mar resistance

New nano and sub-micron aluminum oxide additives for highly transparent radiation cured coatings used in wood, plastics, paper, and metal substrates.  NanoArc® Aluminum Oxide dispersions impart a variety of scratch and mar resistant properties to these coatings that are inaccessible with conventional additives such as waxes and silicones.  Unlike other additives, Nanophase aluminum oxide dispersions are active at low loading levels and do not effect gloss or other mechanical properties of the film.


- NanoArc® Zinc Oxide for UV protection

Incorporating NanoArc® Zinc Oxide provides long-term protection from harmful UV radiation in harsh environments. NanoArc® Zinc provides full spectrum UV absorption to improve the stability of coated substrates; it also provides long-term protection due to the non-migratory and photostable properties of Nanophase Zinc Oxide Dispersions.




The benefits of both nanotechnology products are: transparency, safe in use (dispersion form) and better long term performance, compared to conventional additives.


To achieve the best result in transparent coating systems with different requirements i.e. water based wood coatings, Graphic Arts, Laminates, Cabinet and Furniture Coatings, Plastics etc., VELOX offers different product grades.


The benefits of both products are: transparency, very good long term performance and safe to use, due to their stable, ready to use dispersion form (water and different solvents) instead of the more controversial powder form.

To ask for free samples and/or further technical information, please contact Mr. Daniel Kieser (fon 0049 (0)40 369 688 31). He is the responsible technical contact at VELOX.




VELOX GmbH is a European leader in the marketing and supply of specialist raw materials for the plastics, rubber, painting and coating industries.

 Established in 1993 by Bernard Goursaud and N. Max Schlenzig, VELOX’ Head Office is in Hamburg, Germany. The company currently has 14 offices and over 120 experienced staff servicing customers in the majority of European Union countries as well as in Turkey

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
