Facts & Tech

Nano Technology.

“There's Plenty of Room at the Bottom“

The title of a lecture given by the creator of Nano-technology Richard Phillips Feynman in 1959.

Richard Phillips Feynman, being a mastermind of Nano-technology, already knew at that time of the great potential for tiny structure. Nano-technology is the development, manufacturing and application of systems that are made up of nanometre sized components. A nanometre equals a millionth of a millimetre (10-9 m).

Materials with units of only a few nanometres opened the door to a whole new dimension of material development. Structures that just a few years ago were deemed to be physically unachievable have now become a common reality. With systems of this scale, completely new product characteristics, functions and processes are possible and are being achieved and expanded upon.

 

 

Benefits of our Nano-technology:

  • The latest knowledge in colloid- and sol-gel chemistry
  • Specialisation in Nano-coatings based on silicon dioxide (SiO2)
  • Programming material properties and functionalities for a range of surfaces
  • Mergence of organic and inorganic material worlds to create hybrid materials
  • Optimising Nano-coating products for subsequent client applications
  • Top quality long lasting Nano products
  • Graffiti-protection for porous and smooth surfaces
  • Anti-fingerprint effects on structured surfaces

 

Functions of the Nano-Care Products:

  • Influence on surface finish providing protection and easy cleaning
  • Barrier properties keeping contaminants from imbedding into your surfaces
  • Influence on the adhesion of foreign materials to the substrate (non-stick)
  • Keeps surfaces clean and shiny
  • Non-stick effects on glass, ceramics, metal, plastics, textiles, mineral surfaces
  • Barrier coatings for protecting micro-porous materials and surfaces

 

SiO2 - from the environment for the environment

Almost all sand on the earth is made up of silicon dioxide (quartz). Not only is there an abundance of it but because of its chemical resistance and durability it is also very resistant to the effects of weather. Silicon dioxide is used as the main component in all glass. The raw materials of silicon-dioxide coatings are rich in natural content and therefore environmentally-friendly.

By reducing the requirement for cleaning agents or other chemical processing products for the most surfaces they also aid in protecting the environment through the need for less chemicals to be used in cleaning.

 

THE QUALITY MANAGEMENT OF OUR SUPPLIER

All products and services are developed, produced and handled based on the highest quality standard.

ISO 9001:2008… a synonym for reliability and quality.

Naturally, our supplier’s company is certified to DIN EN ISO 9001:2008 and are always in the process of continued development in quality management.

The basics of ISO 9001-2008 certification are the continuous improvement in the quality management system, careful production and proper rendering of services to increase customer satisfaction.

 


The optimal orientation of business processes and the quality of customer-specific services are at the forefront of focus in our company, which is confirmed impartially by the certification of TÜV-Rheinland.


Our supplier is not interested in a snap-shot of their quality standards. Instead, they will always continue to improve the quality, and have their work inspected regularly. PRODUCT SECURITY Product security takes on a special role in our supplier company. Multiple measures and company-internal standards, which regularly transcend the legal specifications and customer requirements, secure the quality and the innocuousness of their products.

PRODUCT SECURITY

Product security takes on a special role in our supplier company. Multiple measures and company-internal standards, which regularly transcend the legal specifications and customer requirements, secure the quality and the innocuousness of their products.

They also work closely with renowned independent testing institutes and laboratories to enable maximum product security.
