Nano coating - what is it about?

Nano coating works. Sustainable and deeply effective. You can enjoy the advantage - with a brilliant comfort. With one wipe everything is gone from now on.

Nano coating has been on the market for many years and is becoming increasingly widespread. For good reasons. First with car drivers, then in other areas. Because nano coating works. Its benefits extend far beyond the refinement of car bodies. Nano is helpful in everyday life practically everywhere, wherever there are smooth surfaces. It helps boat owners achieve financial benefits and even provides excellent service in the garden. Nano is a complex topic, but its application is simple. So what is it all about exactly?

Worthwhile advantages

A long-term investment

The nanocoating is an investment that will pay off in the long run if used regularly.

Easy-to-Clean effect

The nanocoating with coating function features an easy-to-clean technology, which makes surfaces dirt-repellent and thus reduces the cleaning effort noticeably.

Oleophobia against oils & fats

Oils and fats no longer stick and do not form residues. Wiping is easier without a greasy film. This is why nano coatings are also ideal for floors.

Rejection of salts

No matter if water and wind near the coast or aggressive road salt in winter. High-quality surfaces on cars or boats do not like salts. Nano coatings provide a long-term protection here.

Corrosion protection

Scratches are dangerous. They can expose the metal surface and allow air and moisture to penetrate. Rust and corrosion are a threat. Play it safe with nano coatings.

Nano coating.

Multiple uses in various areas. The modern solution for protecting surfaces.

Nano coatings for a better view

Don't want to constantly have dirty car windows and stripes after cleaning? Such problems can be solved with nano coatings from nanoCare. Simply apply the coating to the clean, streak-free car windows. You profit: From the beading effect  and self-cleaning properties. Also included: If children's hands leave grease or chocolate on the inner panes, a clean, damp cloth is sufficient for streak-free removal. Done.

Dust-free, color intensive, longer young

And nano coating can do even more. Even the upholstery and textiles in cars receive protection with the nano coating. Although this coating technology has a solid structure, it can also be used on flexible materials, such as seat cushions, which easily deform under stress. Thanks to the upholstery coating, stains no longer have a chance to penetrate the fabric. Neither does moisture. The upholstery also does not fade under sunlight. They retain their original color intensity under the nano coating. Especially people who are allergic to house dust benefit because no dust can settle in the upholstery.

Nano coating for convertibles - protected from wind and weather

Among cars, convertibles without a hardtop have a very special weakness: the top, while all convertible drivers fear one thing: Rain when the convertible is driven open or parked. Thanks to the coating of fabrics convertible drivers can now breathe a sigh of relief. A nano coating on the upholstery and plastic parts inside the vehicle ensures that materials are not completely soaked. Why? Because the coating lies protectively between the moisture and the surface.

With a good feeling in a convertible - With nano coatings

But especially in convertible tops, a nano coating shows its full potential. Where the weathering is strong the soft top fades even on new cars quickly and becomes brittle, the nano coating acts as a protection against these factors no longer reaching the material surface directly, where they cause an unattractive appearance and shorter durability. Frequent waterproofings are therefore no longer necessary. The nano coating guarantees longer protection. Cash money is to be saved in addition with it.

Longer on the road with your travelling vacation apartment? Seal your motorhome.

Finally vacation and time to relax. Many people set out with their motorhome to explore the world and camp. Dirty the camper becomes unfortunately fast. But: Who would like to waste his valuable time on vacation to wash the motor home or to scrub the overturned juice from the bench with stain remover? Nano coating as paint coating and for the upholstery protection is an ideal solution, in order to enjoy more of the beautiful things in life especially on vacation.

Protection in any weather - your motorhome benefits

Or does the motorhome stand outside during the winter, when rain, sun and snow alternate? This is the optimal time of the year for rust to form and moisture to attack the interior. With a nano coating of the various surfaces and metals, the possible problems can be cleverly avoided. The "spring cleaning" is quickly done and the interior materials are still in the same condition as before wintering.

Sail well sealed - boats and yachts also benefit

The nano coating offers a special coating, especially in the strong boat sector, from which boat owners benefit not only financially. The self-cleaning Lotus effect (roll-off effect) ensures a significantly reduced adhesion of fingerprints, lime as well as dirt particles on the boat.

Oils, fats, chemicals? Nano coatings prevent.

In the water, all kinds of dangers threaten the boat surface. The solar radiation is intensified by strong water reflections. Salts in wind, rain and water are a permanent stress test for the boat. Dirty waters also attack the surfaces: oils, chemicals, flotsam or bird droppings. With a nano coating, boat owners save a lot of work and money for cleaning, maintenance and regular waterproofing, which is significantly shorter than the nano coating.

Nano-coated interior in the boat

Cushions in the boat furnishings remain as new and hygienically clean, because the nano technology also acts against the penetration of bacteria, which like to settle in moist materials. The Boat paint gets a long-term protection and makes it resistant to salt water, because it does not penetrate to the boat paint. With the nano coating you can noticeably reduce the maintenance costs of your boat and save money accordingly.

It pearls and shines - Nano coating in the shower

In everyday life at home, too, the nano coating can be worth money, namely wherever adhering water causes dirt and lime stains. In the sanitary area and especially in the shower, a nano coating ensures that water splashes and dirty water roll off tiles, the shower tray and glass or plastic doors due to the lotus effect of the nano coating and that limescale does not have a chance to settle and cause unsightly limescale spots. With the nano coating in a shower, a short rinse of the area is enough to make this sanitary area look like freshly cleaned.

The modern form of garden maintenance

Sun, wind, rain and frost in winter quarters - these are weather conditions that affect various materials in the garden and quickly damage them and/or make them look weathered. A nano coating helps against this. Preferred objects for use are garden furniture and flower boxes/pots made of wood or plastic. The protective film of a nano coating prevents the strong UV light from making plastics porous and causing colors to fade.

Having a barbecue? Always goes smoothly.

The barbecue season may come. A nano coating is extremely heat-resistant. Even fire sparks that fly from the grill onto a table or chair do not leave burn marks/holes in the surface material thanks to the nano coating. The grill is spared rust if it is sealed with the nano technology.

 

Less cleaning, more comfort

The time-consuming cleaning of garden furniture is saved. The lotus effect makes use of the self-cleaning properties of a nano coating, dirt simply rolls off. The regular maintenance intervals can also be delayed or completely replaced with a nano coating. Wood, metals and plastics require less care from now on. Surfaces remain smooth for a long time, the durability of materials becomes clear.

Glass and windows - Nano for a better view.

Do you have a winter garden or large window fronts in your house or business building? With a nanocoating, cleaned windows keep their cleanliness for a long time. Here too, the roll-off effect is effective: dirt simply runs off due to the formation of water droplets. After a rain shower the windows remain  free of dirty residues and streaks. The result: less work. In return, you enjoy a clear view through the windows.

Displays and screens - smooth user experience without a trace

Look at your Smartphone. Exactly, you guessed it: The nano coating protects against scratches, and less dust is produced. And from now on there are less grease stains and fingerprints to be seen. The good thing about it: the treatment has no effect on the image quality or the touch function. In addition to smartphones, tablets and the screens of all-in-one PCs also benefit from nano coating. Nano coating can also minimize wear and tear on the housing. A further advantage: the resale value remains constantly high.

Nano coating - more than a simple protection

A nano coating protects surfaces. And that twice over. Anyone who has ever treated car paint with paint cleaner, for example, will see a lot of dirt. Far more than was previously visible to the naked eye. Nano coatings have a preventive effect. Thanks to their special density and stability, even the finest dirt cannot stick. Secondly, the self-cleaning effect. Surface dirt particles are naturally rinsed off surfaces by the roll-off effect during rain. This technique is also called the lotus effect. This way, surfaces stay clean longer.

  • Nano coating has a deeper and more lasting effect
  • The self-cleaning effect saves frequent cleaning
  • Thereby you save water and other utensils

Environmentally friendly surface and paint coating

Because dirt is removed on a nano coating, significantly more water can be saved for cleaning. This is not only good for your wallet, but also for the environment. The nanocoating shows advantages in the range of UV light. The weather and especially the sun have a negative influence on surfaces. Varnishes bleach out, wood dries and becomes brittle and plastics can yellow and become porous over time. A nano coating causes the coating to lie on surfaces like a dense protective film, so that UV light does not directly hit the surfaces. In this way, discoloration and other weathering influences can be prevented.

  • Nano-coated surfaces stay young longer
  • Nanocoatings act like sunscreen on humans
  • Colors shine longer, surfaces do not become porous

Performances

Nano coatings cause a kind of anti-aging effect. A surface sealed in this way can be seen, even for months up to a year. The success is based on the high structural stability. Water rolls off, that is the famous lotus effect. This is how nano coatings perform best in the house. In the bath, in the WC and in the shower. Or outside, where it can get wet and windy. On the car or on your apartment windows. As an oil-repellent coating, the nano coating also celebrates triumphs, even scratches, corrosion and rust have it much harder.

  • Thanks to the oleophobia oils and fats simply go away.
  • The nano-coated surface is better protected against scratches.
  • Acids and acid rain will also have a harder time in the future.

The Nano Revolution

The technology of nanocoating is based on a discovery by Wilhelm Barthlott, a German botanist and bionicist who is considered the discoverer of the lotus effect since the 1970s. The starting point is a physical-chemical phenomenon that can be transferred from nature to technology.

Why dirt and frustration simply roll off

The name nano coating is derived from the Greek "nanos", which means "dwarf". Nano technology is based on research and technology development, which on an atomic level has a size of one to one hundred nanometers. One nanometer corresponds to ten millionths of a centimeter; compared to one millimeter, this is roughly the size ratio of the circumference of a soccer ball to the earth's surface.

These structures create a consistent arrangement of molecules that are superimposed on surfaces and in the process the nano-particles combine to form a continuous coating. If there are uneven surfaces, the smallest particles fill them, creating a smooth coating surface. The enormously small pores in surfaces are also filled with them.

Among other things, this leads to a special bond with the surface to be coated, resulting in intensive durability. In addition, this filling ensures that external influences such as dirt, bacteria or other particles come into contact with the surface or settle in the fine pores over the long term. Due to a strong chemical bond with the surface, the surface tension decreases. The nano coating forms self-organizing anti-adhesion components. These become a homogeneous barrier layer, which is not visible, but is extremely durable.

 

Application of nano coating

A nano coating is easy to do by hand. Nevertheless, there are a few things you need to consider to get all the advantages of a nanocoating. First of all, the substrate must be cleaned as well as possible. Coarse dirt and dust must be cleaned carefully. The surface should also be free of tensides. The pre-treatment of a nano precleaner is recommended. Afterwards, the surface is rinsed with water and has to dry completely.

A lint-free cloth, such as a microfiber cloth, is best suited for applying the nano coating. The coating is sprayed onto it and evenly distributed on the surface to be treated, similar to a conventional polish. Finally, it is polished out. It is particularly important that the coating can dry and harden. Only then does it form a resistant film on surfaces over the long term. In vehicle reconditioning companies, vehicles are usually left standing overnight to ensure a long waiting time, which contributes significantly to maximum effectiveness of the nanocoating.

Therefore, the application of a nano coating should be carried out on a dry day and high humidity due to rain should not be expected within the following 24 hours. Detailed information on the application of the nano coating can be found in the product instructions.

Provided are nano coatings with carriers. During application, only the nanoparticles remain on the surface while the carriers evaporate. The same technique works for textiles. No matter whether synthetic fibers or natural materials, with the nanoc oating the fabric fibers are coated with the nanoparticles without affecting the appearance, structures or breathability.

Nature leads the way

To ensure that everything that is wet and dirty rolls off, we have oriented ourselves to the lotus effect. It ensures cleanliness in the self-cleaning process.

Super water-repellent

Known is hydrophobia. This is the water-repellent property of surfaces. With nanoCare you are completely up to date. Superhydrophobic is even better and more efficient.

Get rid of grease

Oleophobia is one of the very pleasant properties of a nano coating. Why? Because fats and oils are the most unpleasant contaminants. But now it goes away quite smoothly.

 

 

How does the nano coating work ?

Nano particles are mostly applied where it is smooth: also lacquers, glass or ceramics. Nanopolymers then form an invisible layer. If the object is sealed, it pearls and shines quite nicely. And it does so for a long time and sustainably. Why is that? Take the lotus effect. As you know, it comes from the lotus plant. The lotus plant in turn owes this effect to the structure of its leaf surfaces.

Nature has created a combination of superhydrophobia and a self-cleaning function, so that almost no dirt sticks to the surface and dirt from wind and rain is removed as if by "itself". This natural process has been imitated by nanotechnology in such a way that a nano coating can be applied to almost any surface. Not bad, right ?

The technology that works

The technology that creates added value

Hydrophobicity is the term used to describe a water-repellent state. Superhydrophobia is the increase means a strong water repellency on surfaces. This is achieved by reducing the contact area and consequently the adhesion force between surfaces and the nanoparticles and water droplets on them, resulting in a self-cleaning property.

 

The nano-technology ensures a very low adhesion between the coating and the water droplets, which results in an increased roll-off effect. Dirt can thus be washed off the surface, which is called self-cleaning. In addition, the superhydrophobicity of the nanocoating creates a special chemical stability, which prevents UV light, salt and acid solutions from passing through. If it is too theoretical, here are the means for your practical part:

Lotos effect

The name "lotos effect" is based on a certain property of the lotus plant that keeps it clean and dry. The lotus plant owes this to the structure of its leaf surfaces. Here, nature has created a combination of superhydrophobia and a self-cleaning function, so that almost no dirt sticks to it and dirt from wind and rain is removed as if by "itself".

This natural process has been imitated with nanotechnology in such a way that a nanocoating can be applied to almost any surface. The term lotus effect is particularly well known among car owners because the product is used mainly for car paints, rims and car windows.

Superhydrophobia

Hydrophobicity is the term used to describe a water-repellent state. Superhydrophobia is the increase means a strong water repellency on surfaces.

Text This is achieved by reducing the contact area and consequently the adhesion force between surfaces and the nanoparticles and water droplets on them, resulting in a self-cleaning property.

Decisive for the strength of the water repellency are a double structure and the contact angle. In the case of superhydrophobicity, the contact angle is up to 160 degrees. In this way, a maximum of two to three percent of the droplets come into contact with the surface, resulting in very little wetting by water. Nano technology ensures very low adhesion between the coating and the water droplets, resulting in an increased roll-off effect. Dirt can thus be washed off the surface, which is called self-cleaning.

Protection against scratches

Who does not know this - poof is a scratch in the surface and mostly without knowing where it comes from or how it happened. Was it the offspring with the Bobbycar, maybe with the ring accidentally rattled along a surface or was it a flying

Pebbles? Scratches happen quickly. Not so, if surfaces are provided with a nano coating.

Due to its strong strength, density and structure, it lies protectively on surfaces and the nano coating prevents light scratches from getting through to the surface material and causing visible damage. Scratches that hit surfaces with greater pressure, when "caught" by the nano coating, so that the pressure is reduced and an otherwise deep scratch becomes at most a slight superficial notch.

FAQ

How long a nano coating lasts depends on whether it has been applied correctly and on the quality of the product. In the test, especially product offers with a low price usually show inferior quality. Even when used properly, they usually have a shelf life of one to two weeks. It is not uncommon for the benefits to be transformed into a worsening of the original condition, for example, as dirt can remain stubbornly stuck after the inferior nano coating has ceased to function.

In contrast, a good nanocoating lasts at least between six and eight months. If it is applied correctly and sufficient waiting time is observed, a shelf life of nine months is not uncommon, as has been proven in practical tests by numerous users. Very high-quality nanocoatings last up to two or three years. This does not have to be removed afterwards for a new coating. The old coating can simply be refreshed to restore the coating to its full functionality. The price is higher, but ultimately you save in terms of a two to three year bill.

Nano coating is useful for surfaces of different types due to the numerous advantages. As a paint coating, it protects against scratches, bird droppings, fading UV light, has a dirt- and oil-repellent effect, leaves glass free of smears and streaks for a long time and saves a lot of work, time and money for expensive paint preparation, washing/cleaning and care, including care products. With a nano coating, surfaces look as good as new and even bacteria cannot settle, which is particularly advantageous in the sanitary area.

A high-quality nano- coating is not favourable for the first application, but if the savings potential for impregnations, care products such as car polish, water consumption and car wash systems is offset, the investment will pay off significantly in the long term.

The best nano coating is the one that has been tested in practice and is convincing in every respect. It is easy to apply and spread, has a low density and crowning corresponding to nanotechnology, has a strong lotus effect, high strength and offers long-term protection. Only when the particles of the nano coating completely fill the pores and a closed protective film forms on the surface, is it the best nano coating available.

A nanoc oating fills the pores in the surface and completely covers them as a protective film. As a result, the surface is completely covered. The coating hardens and thus protects the surface from external influences such as scratches and sunlight. In addition, it is dirt, oil and water-repellent. It has a special smoothness and haptic.In this way, moisture "slips away" after they have collected as drops due to different weights and sizes. A reduced diffusion of water vapor occurs, although this is not completely prevented, as is the case with glaze, for example. Oil is repelled by an oleophobic treatment. The surface layer of the nano coating is nevertheless quite thin and also transparent, so that it is not visible on surfaces.

Care of cars is basically divided into three areas: polish, wax and coatings. Polishes are offered for different purposes. Polishes for cleaning paint, freshening up paint, as well as against scratches, and for the shine of paint and chrome are among the classics. Wax, and in particular hard wax, is used to protect the paint in a similar way to nano coating.

 In comparison to nano coating, polishes and waxes are produced synthetically, although wax can also contain natural products. The nano coating is much more complicated to produce because the technology consists of a two-component coating. The difference to wax is also evident in the pore coating and a chemical compound with lacquers, while wax only functions on the surface.

Wax loses its durability with every contact with water, can be easily removed by washing or wiping and therefore has a much shorter protection period, which ideally only lasts a few weeks. A nano coating hardens, shows a firm structure and therefore remains effective for much longer.

A nanoc oating is so strong that even wax can be applied to it. The other way around is not possible because the wax prevents the nanoparticles from penetrating into the pores and bonding with the paint.

For you to benefit from all the advantages of the nano coating, the substrate must be cleaned in the best possible way. Coarse dirt and dust must be cleaned carefully. The substrate should also be free of tensides. The pre-treatment of a nano precleaner is recommended. Afterwards, the surface is rinsed with water and must dry completely.

A lint-free cloth, such as a microfiber cloth, is best suited for applying the nano coating. The coating is sprayed onto it and evenly distributed on the surface to be treated, similar to a conventional polish. Finally, it is polished out. It is particularly important that the coating can dry and harden. Only then does it form a resistant film on surfaces over the long term. In vehicle reconditioning companies, vehicles are usually left standing overnight to ensure a long waiting time, which contributes significantly to the maximum effectiveness of the nano coating.

Therefore, the application of a nano coating should be carried out on a dry day and high humidity due to rain should not be expected within the following 24 hours. For detailed information on the application of the nano coating, please refer to the product instructions.

Nano coating is especially useful where surfaces come into contact with dirt and moisture. Do you drive your car a lot through the snow, does your caravan stand unprotected in the garden during winter or are you planning a long sailing trip? A nano coating is always an advantage when external influences cause damage, premature wear and tear and/or increase the need for care.

Especially for new purchases of boats, vehicles and trailers, a nano coating on paint and other surface materials helps to provide reliable protection that ensures a long-lasting appearance as new. With leased vehicles, you also protect your finances, because you are charged expensive repair costs for scratches on the paintwork or plastic parts.

 But nano coating is also worthwhile for older surfaces. In combination with a previous material preparation or thorough surface cleaning, you can make old paintwork shine again and reduce the speed of the further aging process - in line with the motto: Anti-Aging for surfaces.

Caution is always advisable when buying, because the term "nano coating " is not protected by patent. In many cases the term is only used for a product that has a similar lotus effect, but is not so hardened that the other advantages of the "real" nano coating are available. Nowadays, conventional window sprays already offer a roll-off of water. However, they have little or nothing in common with nano technology.

In addition, the range of nano products is extensive, so there is a good chance of losing track. Promises are not reliable reference points that guarantee an excellent product. When buying, you should pay attention to detailed information, for example how long the protection period is and, above all, whether the product is actually nanotechnology. It is also always advantageous to know whether a test confirms the effectiveness.

A nano coating is only removed very slowly by washing or the stress of high temperature on surfaces. Even in contact with salt or bird droppings, the nano coating proves to be very robust and resistant.

However, it is advisable to wipe off such pollutants from the nano coating quickly if they are not washed away by the nano-effect. As a rule, a simple rinse with a water hose is then sufficient. The rest is done by the beading effect and the self-cleaning mechanism of the nanotechnology. For smaller surfaces, a moist microfiber cloth can ensure complete removal instead of spraying with a water hose.

"I am actually more than satisfied with nanoCare. As a hobby gardener I have also benefited from special solutions, since nanoCare also offers coatings for mineral surfaces. I am enthusiastic about my shower, which has been sealed for two weeks"
