NanoSafeguard coatings are only a few nanometers thick and cannot be seen with the naked eye. They form very strong chemical bonds with the surfaces to which they are applied and withstand considerable exposure from external forces, ensuring long-lasting protection for sealed items.
The nano particles in our products organize themselves to form a coating that bonds with the surface. With smooth, non-absorbent surfaces, nano particles combine with the surface; liquids are repelled, taking contaminants like dirt with them. With porous surfaces, nano particles fill up the pores from the inside. Fungus, lichen, algae and moss can no longer adhere to the surface and dirt and liquids can no longer penetrate. A similar interaction takes place on textiles and upholstery, where the nano coating surrounds the fibers, preventing any liquids or pollutants from penetrating the sealant.
Shortly after applying NanoSafeguard (one day for smooth surfaces, textiles and upholstery; two days for porous surfaces), the coating develops its full effect. The look, texture and breathability of treated materials are not affected whatsoever and are completely harmless to skin.
After drying, NanoSafeguard coatings are heat resistant (up to 450° C / 842° F), UV stable, and frost resistant. (Please note that heat resistant does not mean fireproof.) NanoSafeguard-treated surfaces are stronger and more scratch resistant than non-treated surfaces, diminishing the harm average mechanical wear inflicts and minimizing elemental damage. You can wash the surface, for example, with a high-pressure cleaner (maximum 50/60 bar or 725/870 psi) and, depending on the surface, a brush.
