Maharashtra-headquartered Advanced Nanotech Lab (Ant Lab) has won a five-year $15 million (Rs 111 crore) contract for private label manufacturing of 9H Ceramic Coating, 10H Ceramic Coating, and a few hybrid variants for one of the largest automotive lubricant manufacturers in Asia.

The company says the client has a global presence in 50 countries and caters to the aftermarket and service sectors. These coating products will be used in the automotive refinishing industry to enhance the exterior appearance of luxury vehicles.

Rohit Rajput, founder, Ant Lab said, "We were delighted to meet Fadi from our client’s management team, who was very impressed with the wide variety of nano-coating products we manufactured, ranging from automotive to textile to solar to even construction coatings, and SGS certifications of our Hydrax branded ceramic coatings added to their trust in the product's performance."

In 2021, Ant Lab launched a range of new automotive ceramic coating products, a few of them being 10H ceramic coating, Matte ceramic coating, and PPF ceramic coating in the ultra-luxury ceramic coatings. The company says its USP feature called 'Baby Touch', which is an ultra-soft hand feel in the finishing of the coating, in addition to the candy-like gloss and water beading effect.

"We have an innate desire to innovate in chemistry. My R&D team was delighted to achieve their goal with Graphene Ceramic Coating a few years ago, which improved mechanical qualities such as stiffness and product bonding strength, making it an instant hit in the automotive aftermarket for our clients. Upcoming innovative products, such as hybrid spray ceramic coating, will become the flagship killer product in our client’s arsenal. Its unique selling point will be its ability to withstand 500 detergent car washes," added Rajput.
