SP is the most attractive partner for research and innovation in applied surface chemistry.


SP develops and transfers, competence, solutions and new technologies to industrial sectors where surface chemistry is of importance. 



– Extended service-life and improved properties of wood products through the use of functional nanoparticles in clear coating and adhesive systems

a project within the EU Seventh Research Frame Programme (FP7), in the area of NMP (Nanosciences, Nanotechnologies, Materials and new Production Technologies).

The long term objective of this three-year Project was to provide coated and glued wood products with substantially improved durability for a more sustainable society.

The consortium consisting of 11 partners from 6 countries developed new water-based clear coating systems for wood with improved UV-absorbing properties, and new water-based thermoplastic wood adhesives with improved mechanical properties.
