Oceanpower Corporation was ranked 25th amongst the national enterprises, ranked 5th in Guangdong province and ranked 4th in shenzhen for the quantity of patents in 2003.

Introduction to Part of Accomplished Projects

1.The Color Tinting System for Architectural Coatings

After evaluation of this accomplished project, experts of Ministry of Construction, P.R.China regard the project as one of the most advanced work in the world. The Color Tinting System is a software including series of functions of Color-detection Control, Formula Database Management, Formula Calculation, Formula Search, Color Tinting System Control, etc. By the improved Kubelka-Munk model, the artificial neural nets model, the nonlinear 3D search model, etc., the system integrates the color-detection hardware, formula database search algorithm, specific formula prediction model and remote debugging colors based on Internet. It is suitable for the applications, used by coatings enterprises both domestic and abroad, Color Tinting Chain Shops. And it owns more advantages than the traditional technology in terms of automation, accuracy, efficiency, cost etc. in the fields of color paint production.

2.The Application Technology of Polyacrylonitrile Fibre in Wall Coatings System

Shenzhen Oceanpower Chemical Co., Ltd and one famous fiber manufacturer in Europe developed the polyacrylonitrile fiber. After several years'gaining civil engineering experiences we systematically developed an understanding related to the anti-crack, antifreeze and anti-penetration performance of fibers in wall coatings system, the dispersion and the application technology.
According to the characters and functions of different exterior coatings, the guideline and the parameters such as the classification and the addition content of the fiber that can be obtained. The experts in Ministry of Construction, P.R.China, appraised this work to be internal leading.
Introduction to Part of Current Important Projects

1.Research on the Key Technologies of the Architectural Decoration with the Function of Negative Ion (Subsidiary of the Important Project from 15th Congress of the Chinese Communist Party)

The positive/ negative charge center of the natural polarity mineral cannot overlap together. Due to the dipole moment, the minerals still take the charge.
When adsorbed on the minerals, vapor will decompose into H+ and OH-. H+ and OH- can combine into H3O2- negativeion, which can react with the "bad?positive ion such as formaldehyde or benzene. This reaction can be of great benefits, and applied in for example air cleaning, improvement of the body immunity system, faster recovering from fatigue etc. However, if you would like to apply the materials into the architectural coatings, then you must be well aware of the key technologies such as the powder diminishment, the choice of optimized intermingle lanthanum, the surface treatment, the slow-releasing of coatings, the dispersion of negative ion powder in coatingsetc.

2.Systematic Technology of the Water Circulation Security for Environmental Architectures (Subsidiary of the Important Project from 15th Congress of the Chinese Communist Party)

In this project, the current shortage situation of water resources in our country is considered.
Following conclusions connected with the application of current water treatment and existing problems is summarized. UV technology such as light strength, dosage measurements and calculation is studied and the goal is to find the proper way for safe disinfections in circulating water of environmental architectures.

3.The Theory and the Application Technology of Pre-stressed AFRP Textile for Reinforced Concrete

In order to satisfy more and more complicated reinforcement requirements, we should try to make use of the strength of AFRP, to enlarge the application arrangement of AFRP and to promote the further application and development of AFRP in the field of engineering reinforcement. This project will take references of the advanced international tension equipments. These references will then be used for the further development of the tensioned, anchor fixture and the final goal is to produce our own product and to have the property right for it. We mainly research the anchor fixture system, which brings the pre-stress to AFRP textile, and the reinforcement technologies of pre-stressed AFRP textile.

4.Synthesis Theory and Application Technology of Waterborne Two-component Polyurethane Coatings

Two-component polyurethane coatings owns excellent mechanical performance (such as high film hardness, strong adhesion and high wear-resistance), perfect chemical resistance and weather ability, and low temperature film forming property. Waterborne two-component polyurethane coatings integrates the high performance of solvent-type two-component polyurethane coatings and the low VOC release of waterborne coatings. It can be used in high-class exterior wall coatings, leather coatings, automobile coatings, plastic coatings, industrial coatings and resistance eroding coatings etc. It satisfies different requirements, and becomes the focus of the research in the coatings field.

The key technologies of this project are to develop and perfect the high performance defect-free waterborne two-component polyurethane coatings, to develop the high solid content waterborne resin with hydroxyl. By the introduction of special functional molecule structure into polyurethane chain according to the designable character of polyurethane molecule, more functions of polyurethane films could thus be accomplished, as well as the final performance improvement.
