What Is Sol Gel Coating?

Sol Gel is the name given to solid materials formed from small molecules. In effect, a colloidal solution is created by converting monomers. This becomes the basis of a gel-like substance. The gel can be used in a myriad of applications.

The reason for the name is the reference to two components making up the coating:

  • Sol

Sol is short for solution and references the monomers which have been suspended in water. They can hang in almost any liquid but water is the preferred option.

  • Gel

The semisolid state is the secondary stage of production. Molecules are introduced to the liquid monomers, thickening the ‘soup’ to create a gel. It retains liquidity but is also solid. Effectively balancing between two states and warranting the name.

Benefits of Sol Gel

It’s easy to apply as a gel and then hardens to create a solid, often glossy, finish. It can be used for a huge array of applications, including as a hygienic hand gel or as a coating for machinery to protect them from wear and tear.
