nano care automotive

With high-level expertise in nanoscale molecular bonding across a breadth of automotive substrates, we market a range of car care, protection and safety products of the highest calibre. From scratch-resistant nano-ceramic bodywork enhancement to stain protection on upholstery interiors – we have the solution!

Nanoflex® VP12 is a highly durable rain-repellent safety treatment for vehicle windscreens.

After a quick and simple application, Nanoflex® VP12 permits safer driving in wet conditions by deflecting raindrops from the glass as ‘beads’ at speeds of over 30mph. This overcomes the problem of reduced visibility caused by rain filming across the screen and reduces the need for wipers.

Nanoscale particles in the nano-ceramic coating are less than 100-nm thick (80,000 times thinner than a human hair); these fuse seamlessly with particles in the glass. The anti-bonding molecules migrate to the glass surface to form a highly protective but completely invisible surface layer, repelling water and contaminants.

Bonding takes place in seconds, so the newly-coated surface can be exposed to rain and snow immediately after the car detailing treatment.

This permanent fusion of the active ingredient to the windscreen ensures highly-durable windscreen protection. In mixed driving conditions, the coating generally continues to perform well for over 12,000 miles’ worth of car use.

Improved visibility enables quicker reactions to hazards and therefore safer driving, as well as the following benefits:

  • Rain simply beads and runs off the windscreen
  • Windscreen cleaning becomes easier
  • Wipers last longer
  • Bugs are removed easily
  • De-icing becomes easier
  • VP12 is free of irritants, allowing safe and easy application

Nanoflex® Dura provides non-absorbent automotive bodywork, glass and alloy surfaces with outstanding 9H pencil hardness “nano-ceramic” protection, providing long-term easy-clean performance, scratch resistance and protection against oxidisation.

Dura forms an ultra-thin barrier with a strong chemical bond to the OH surface that is permanent, durable and resistant against mechanical (abrasive) and chemical (cleaning) action, as well as general weathering.

Dura is easily applied by a simple polishing action, which is followed by air curing. The nano-ceramic coating provides market-leading durability and performance for dealerships, car detailing companies and own-brand suppliers.

Nanoflex® Tex range coatings are water-based spray-on products that have been developed for ease of application with the end-user in mind. The simple, non-hazardous, quick-drying spray application makes this an ideal product for automotive upholstery, leather care and carpeting.

Application by trigger or mist spraying enables rapid coverage without the need for mask protection. The Tex range is odourless and does not contain irritants, making it particularly popular for dealership car care application where user safety is paramount and speed is of the essence.

Following a simple wetting of the surface, upholstery can dry at 20°C within 30 minutes.

Nanoflex® Tex range’s versatility comes from its ability to form a water, dirt and oil repellent against the fabric’s fibres. This is achieved through a simple manual spray application.
