A transparent world brimming with fascinating ideas
Glass can be only a few millimeters thin or up to several centimeters thick. It is spun from fibers and then cast. It can be bullet-resistant and fireproof. The material is etched, sandblasted, treated with laser beams, coated, tinted and hardened, decoratively foiled or laminated with silkscreen printing.
Glass filters UV rays, lets water drip off and doesn’t allow dirt to adhere. Glass is incredibly versatile. Nano gate technology can be applied with just as much versatility with glass in order to achieve a permanent surface enhancement. The material is supplemented and evaluated by additional functions that considerably increase the product benefits.
Because glass materials are used throughout various sectors, the requirements on the material are very different.
- In architecture, for example, entire buildings, facades and roof constructions are made of glass.
- On exterior surfaces and on vehicle windows Nano gate technology can achieve water repelling or so called hydrophobic properties.
On account of hydrophobic effects, liquids are not repelled, but distributed on the surface as a thin film. Conductive coatings can absorb heat or transport electric impulses without affecting the transparency of the glass.
In the interior areas, new design ideas, mirrors, doors and much more are being manufactured from glass. On etched or sand-blasted elements, Nano gate-Technology prevents fingerprints, facilitates cleaning glass doors, prevents limestone deposits in shower cabins and protects long-term against glass corrosion.
Fine material with a permanently fine appearance
High grade steel surfaces, whether brushed, matt or smooth and shiny, look chic and add a touch of technology and professionalism in private and public buildings. Glass is also used as a design element, frequently glazed, etched or sand-blasted. Both materials are however very susceptible visible soiling from finger-prints that look unattractive and are also difficult to remove.
In the professional sector a more frequently required or difficult cleaning brings with it undesired cost factors and in the private sector at the undleast an increasingly recurring annoyance.
A treatment with Nano-technology can essentially prevent fingerprints or considerably facilitate cleaning. If required the surface can be cleaned by just wiping
