» The word 'nano' comes from the Greek language and means 'midget'.
» One nm (short for nanometre) equals one millionth of a millimetre or in other words one ten thousandth of the thickness of one human hair.
» Nanotechnology relates to the production, research and use of extremely small structures.
» The nanometre scale is the scale of single atoms and tiny molecules.
» One nanometre represents 4 to 6 atoms.
» Nano particles or polymers (smaller than 100nm) are the building blocks of nanotechnology.
» The ability to utilise materials on the atomic level and the use of the unique phenomena that occur on that small scale, open up an infinite number of magical possibilities.
» Nanotechnology has proven applications in energy and conservation technology, IT business, medicine and pharmaceutical industries.
» On an atomic level, there are no borders between chemistry, biology and physics. These 3 disciplines in fact converge to the end consumer's advantage
The scale of a nano molecule compared to a football is the same as the football compared to the world.
Nanoshield at work
The advantage of a nano coating is that it is heat resistant up to 450 degrees Celsius as well as UV stable and frost resistant. So any treated surface become stronger and scratch resistant, and average mechanical wear does almost no harm to the surface. Sealed surfaces can even be cleaned with a high-pressure cleaner (maximum 50/60 bar or 725/870 psi).
Removing the coating
In the strict sense of the word, removal is not possible with force. nanoshield is bonded at the atomic level, so scrubbing or scouring will damage the treated surfaces (e.g. synthetics), and it's still impossible to remove the sealant entirely.
the bond that is forever Nanotechnology products have been tested for years, developed steadily and are optimised for surfaces and their material characteristics (for glass, ceramics, stone, concrete, plaster/finery, masonry, natural stones, textiles etc).
Durability of a nanoshield
The durability of a nano sealant depends on different compounds.
The efficiency of our products relies on the pre-cleaning of the surfaces to be treated. Sealants performance is affected by the presence of surfactants, grease and oil on the surface to be treated. Ensure that surfaces are clean, dry and grease free. Never pre-clean with alcohol , as this adversely affects the sealing between the sealant and surface.
Different sealed surfaces need different hardening times, depending on the surface and weathering. A long lasting sealant can only be provided after complete hardening. See instructions for each product. Thermal hardening extends the sealing time.
3. Nature of surface:
We offer a complete range of sealants optimised for different surfaces. Ensure you select and use the right sealant for the right surface. While all our products are nanoproducts, they are different in composition. For example, our ceramic sealant contains more 'ceramic nanos', but our car glass sealant contains more 'glass nanos'. Just read the sealant title and label to know which one is right for your intended usage.
Advanced properties of nanoshield coatings and impregnations
Apart from being simply Water Repellent due to the hydrophobic "skin" effect, our coatings and impregnations have a "high contact angle" which means that droplets of water roll very easily over the surface, taking contaminants with them. It's a bit like comparing ball bearings to bean bags with regard to fluidity of movement.
Scrupulously Clean Surfaces
At the microscopic level, treated surfaces are so smooth that they are easily cleaned usually with just water Surfaces are so smooth that dirt and other particles find it difficult to stick – depriving bacteria of food. Hence anti-microbial properties without the inclusion of biocides.
» A little goes a very, very long way!
» Coatings follow the contours of a surface, meaning that they will not make non-slip surfaces slippery.
» Coatings are extremely flexible, will not crack on flexible surfaces.
» Breathing characteristic: Allow moisture – water as vapour – to pass through due to tiny gaps between nano-particles.
» Will not (usually) change the appearance of a surface. We have nanoshield that are designed to enhance surface gloss and deepen colour.
Once you start using nanoshield nano coatings, you can see the difference.
NanoCoating anti-fouling agent nanoshield - 100A and nanoshield - 100B
Nano anti-fouling agent filling into surface of polished tile, increase the gloss to 90 and protect the tile from dirty.
nanoshield 100A material is a of environment-friendly inorganic material, filling into the pores of hard surface such as polished tile or marble , increase the gloss above 88o and protect the tile's surface from stains, such as oil based permanent marker, ink, tea, coffee, cement and so on can't be leave behind.
nanoshield 100B processed from macromolecule organic materials with antifouling property for polished tiles. The virtual components filter into the space between nano particles and the tile to form a stable valence bonds so as to strengthen the antifouling property. This material can change the hydrophilic surface of the tile after being treated with nanoshield 100A antifouling materials into hydrophobic surface to reach a hydrophobic and antifouling effect.
Nano material must be used together with a kind of machine which has 10 to 16 sets of high speed turntables, Let the nano particles to infiltrate into the tiny pores and small cracks in the tile surface .
These materials include nanoshield 100A and nanoshield 100B.
First dropping nanoshield 100A on the surface of polished tiles, meanwhile turntables running with a high speed 1000~1100 r/m for gloss, repeat this process 7~10 times till tile gloss is above 90 o; then dropping nanoshield 100B on the surface of polished tiles ,meanwhile turntables running with a slow speed 100 r/m for anti-fouling.
nanoshield 100A and nanoshield 100B
It needs about 50~70 g/m2 polished tile. This is only for reference. nanoshield - 100A : 40~50g/m2 nanoshield - 100B : 10~20 g/m2
