WHAT IS NANOTECHNOLOGY?

Nanotechnology is the manipulation of matter at an atomic and molecular level. It refers to the scientific field, which deals with very small structures. One nanometer stands for one billionth of a meter (10‐9 m) and it is so small that:

  • A sheet of paper is about 100,000 nanometers thick
  • A strand of human DNA  is 2.5 nanometers in diameter
  • There are 25,400,000 nanometers in one inch
  • A human hair is approximately 80,000- 100,000 nanometers wide
  • A single gold atom is about a third of a nanometer in diameter
  • On a comparative scale, if the diameter of a marble was one nanometer, then diameter of the Earth would be about one meter!

“Once the surface has been treated, it develops properties that reduce the contact angle making it impossible for liquids and dirt to attach to it.”

The so obtained self-cleaning characteristics (or easy-to-clean characteristics) reduce cleaning expenses and protect the surface against aging, environmental aggressors and chalk deposits, among other things.

THE LOTUS EFFECT

The Lotus Effect comes from the Lotus-flower, which has self-cleaning and hydrophobic characteristics which is known as a natural phenomenon. This self-cleaning effect is precisely what our products offer and are able to be applied on practically any surface in order to create these exact properties.

Once the surface has been treated, it develops properties that reduce the contact so that dirt cannot attach to it. The water that comes in contact with the surface is not able to build a film, it is only able to form small beads that slide off much faster and take most of the dirt with them.

The so obtained self-cleaning characteristics (or easy-to-clean characteristics) reduce the cleaning expense and protect the surface against aging, aggressive environmental influences and chalk deposits, among other things.
