The properties of nanoscale titanium dioxide particles generated in-situ during a polycondensation process are explored and the
compounds obtained are investigated as UV-stabilizing additives for the formation of ultradurable powder coatings. Beneficial effects of
TiO2 nanoparticles for the long-term photoprotection of polyester composite materials under accelerated weathering conditions could be
clearly demonstrated. These results are of considerable interest for the development of new hybrid organic-inorganic systems to be used
as transparent coatings for outdoor applications such as UV-resistant protection layers stabilized with functional nanoparticles based on
cheap, environmentally benign and abundant compounds
Keywords: Transparent coatings, UV-stabilization, polyester nanocomposites, functional additives.
