Vietnamese paint company Kova on May 8 launched its nano bullet-proof paint made from husks. The new product has attracted attention of local and foreign scientists and enterprises.
Husk is known as an agricultural by-product, often used as fuel, to make fertilizer. Dr. Nguyen Thi Hoe, Chairwoman of the Kova Paint Group, has used this by-product to produce a special product – bullet-proof paint.
This product is praised by experts as it helps reduce the weight of bulletproof vests from 60% to 70%.
Besides nano bulletproof paint, Kova has also launched a number of new products made from rice husks, such as antibacterial paint, self-cleaning paint and fire-resistant paint of high quality.
Dr. Nguyen Thi Hoe hopes these products will be welcomed by many countries.
She said that the use of husks as main material will help save fuel, and increase productivity for Vietnamese farmers.
