Nano Care’s range of glass-protecting and improvement superhydrophobic coating products constitutes the most comprehensive collection on the market. Once applied, nanoscale protective layers (which are 80,000 times thinner than a human hair) bond with the substrate to leave a smooth, anti-stain, non-discolouring surface layer. Applications protect glass and polished porcelain with an ultra-hydrophobic film, eradicating limescale and soap scum and providing an anti-fingerprint finish.
Nanoflex® VP 12 gives non-absorbent, mineral surfaces such as glass, ceramic, stainless steel, polished porcelain or polished natural stone a reliable non-stick easy-clean performance. Once applied, a protective layer less than 100-nm thick bonds with the substrate to leave an anti-stain, anti-fingerprint finish layer.
For commercial application by glass processors and equipment manufacturers, Nanoflex® VP12 provides a quick and effective means of creating a permanent, easy-clean, non-stick bond for glass surfaces. The irritant-free ethanol-based solution doesn’t release noxious fumes, ensuring that there are no negative effects on the user. Independent workplace testing has verified that manual application by polishing is completely safe in the work environment.
For many production lines, the polishing application of Nanoflex® VP12 is the final process: a high-value additional finish for the final polishing stage.
Where automated application is required, we can provide nanotechnology solutions or consultation for the most appropriate equipment.
For both manual and automated application methods, Nanoflex® VP12 bonds and dries within seconds, allowing the product to be packed and dispatched on the same day.
The nano coating is crystal-clear, UV-stable, chemically inert and extremely durable, having both hydrophobic and oleophobic capabilities. The ultra-hydrophobic film coating will not peel or flake and is unaffected by extreme temperatures from –20°C to +350°C. The strength of the permanent chemical bond provides excellent weathering and outstanding mechanical and chemical abrasion resistance.
The superhydrophobic coating provides a robust defence against the build-up of limescale, urine staining and soap scum.
Easy-clean and dirt-repellent properties extend the range of application to automotive glass, solar panels and building protection.
Nanoflex® SG 70 is an invisible glass coating that has been specially developed for use on sandblasted or etched glass. The smart coating gives glass a permanent anti-fingerprint finish that prevents glass aesthetics from being compromised either during installation or during its lifetime. The superhydrophobic coating of the textured glass structure ensures that grease and dirt become invisible. Grease and dirt can be easily removed after curing with conventional solvent-based glass cleaners.
For the glass processor or equipment manufacturer, Nanoflex® SG70 provides a quick and easy-to-apply solution to protect sandblasted glass against limescale, soap scum and other dirt build up.
Nanoflex® Anti-Mist (Antifog) enhances glass and plastic surfaces with anti-mist performance. The intelligent coating provides an anti-fingerprint finish and prevents condensation by creating an ultra-hydrophilic film that causes even the minutest droplets in water vapour to be dispersed across the surface, thereby preventing misting.
For the best results, the anti-mist spray should be applied weekly or monthly, as cleaning or large volumes of water will reduce performance due to lack of chemical bond with the surface.
Applications are ideal for bathroom glass and mirrors, automotive glass, caravan windows and domestic glass (including eyewear).
Nanoflex® Clear View, in its diluted form, creates an ultra-hydrophobic film that repels water, limescale, soap scum and other dirt from non-absorbent surfaces. Nanoflex® Clear View is easy to apply and does not require buffing. This significantly reduces application cost, time and labour (which generally combine to represent 70% of the total cost of application).
Nanoflex® Clear View concentrate is available in bulk to the car cleaning and servicing market where it is ideal for the following uses: cleaning dirty surfaces; limescale removal; use as a detergent in windscreen washes; use as a finish in car wash facilities. The superhydrophobic coating provides an anti-fingerprint finish that is ideal for glass, plastic and polished porcelain surfaces.
