In response to the cavitation caused by the partial vacuum caused by the fluid flow, a paint was developed by dispersing the lamella-shaped glass-flake in resin for anti-cavitation. This composite paint was developed by using the inorganic filler (lamella shaped glass-flake) and the NBR (Acrylonitrile-butadiene rubber) which was modified epoxy resin. Especially, the glass-flake was a thin film with a thickness of about 100~200 nm and length of about $20{\sim}30{\mu}m$, the aspect ratio was about 200 to 300 times that of the plate-shaped. So the paint for anti-cavitation have shown excellent performance in corrosion resistance. The results of evaluating anti-cavitation performance was below, tensile strength $4.8{\sim}6N/mm^2$ or more, rupture elongation 30% or higher, abrasive speed $10mm^2/h$ or less. In particular, it showed more than twice the superior performance compared to existing advanced foreign products in anti-cavitation performance evaluation.
