nano care non-absorbent

The non-absorbent nanotechnology range contains nano coating applications for a variety of non-porous surfaces, including glass, ceramics, stainless steel, plastic and granite. The intelligent coatings permanently adhere to surfaces*, providing easy-clean performance against numerous contaminants, reducing cleaning interval times and avoiding the need for harsh cleaning chemicals.

The products may be applied as a part of an in-line automated or manual manufacturing process, or by the end user in own label kit format.

*Excluding Nanoflex® Clear View and Nanoflex® Anti-Mist

Signo Non Absorbent

Nanoflex® VP 12 enhances non-porous, mineral surfaces such as glass, ceramic or polished natural stone with reliable, non-stick easy-clean performance.

Once applied, a smooth, protective layer less than 100-nm thick (80,000 times thinner than a human hair) bonds with the substrate to prevent stains and discolouration.

The coating is crystal-clear, UV-stable, chemically inert and extremely durable, having both hydrophobic and oleophobic capabilities. It will not peel or flake and is unaffected by extremes of temperatures from –20°C to +350°C. The strength of the permanent chemical bond provides excellent weather resistance and outstanding mechanical and chemical abrasion resistance.

The smart coating provides a robust defence against the build-up of limescale, urine scale and soap scum.

Its easy-clean and dirt-repellent properties extend the range of application to automotive glass, solar panels and building protection.

Nanoflex® Dura provides non-absorbent surfaces (painted, stainless, plastic and natural stone) with reliable nanotechnology protection against a range of contaminants such as graffiti, acids and oxidisation.

Nanoflex® Dura forms an ultra-thin barrier with a strong chemical bond that is permanent and durable. Once applied to the surface, the nano coating resists damage caused by mechanical (abrasive) and chemical (cleaning) action, as well as general weathering.

Nanoflex® Dura is a nano-ceramic coating that is particularly suited to clear view windows, commercial stainless-steel kitchens, domestic kitchens (including quartz worktops and ceramic hobs) and children’s outdoor play equipment.

Nanoflex® SG 70 has been specially developed for use on sandblasted or etched glass. The nano coating enhances glass with a permanent anti-fingerprint finish, preventing glass aesthetics from being compromised either during installation or during use. Due to the optimised smart coating of the textured glass structure, greasy and dirty fingerprints are mostly avoided and can be easily removed with conventional solvent-based glass cleaners.

Nanoflex® SG 70 can be used on glass balustrades, feature windows and panels. Sandblasted glass retains its opaqueness without any visible shading or joint lines.

Nanoflex® Anti-Mist (Antifog) enriches glass and plastic surfaces with anti-misting performance. The anti-mist spray prevents condensation by creating an ultra-hydrophilic film on the surface which causes the minutest droplets in water vapour to be dispersed across the surface, thereby preventing misting.

For the best results, Nanoflex® 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 include bathroom glass and mirrors, automotive glass, caravan windows and domestic glass including eyewear.

Top Ceram® RAK 300 is a single application barrier coating that reduces the permeability of polished porcelain and stoneware.

Polished or semi-polished porcelain and stoneware are extremely vulnerable to staining and dirt due to the air pockets that are exposed during the manufacturing process.  Dirt and liquid contamination can become trapped in tiles and cause staining. The only way to rectify tile damage is by using a diamond grinder to strip tiles back. But, with problem-solving Top Ceram® RAK 300, tile damage can be entirely avoided.

Top Ceram® RAK 300 forms a nanotechnology barrier that effectively prevents dirt and paint particles from embedding into polished porcelain and stoneware. Top Ceram’s effectiveness can be demonstrated by using the ‘permanent marker test’: if permanent marker ink can be completely removed with ethanol, the product is protected.

Top Ceram® is suitable for all wall and floor tiles and is available in bulk for application at the end of the manufacturing process or during installation.
