Did you ever consider that your office block or home could have something in common with space travel? Yes, we are all flying through space, but there is something closer to home (or work) that is in common: nanotechnology.
As a leading Sydney painting service company, we use the best available materials on the market, including nanotechnology coatings. This technology is so successful that it is used in an ever-growing number of industries, including space travel.
What Does Nanotechnology Do In Paints?
Nanotechnology’s popularity is evident by its growth of US$4.8 billion in 8 years. It has brought higher transparency, exciting new functionalities, and superior performance. Its application now extends to protecting glass, masonry, concrete, limestone, steel, and marble. Nanotechnology proactively reacts against moisture and water stains, moss, fungi and algae growth, soot and oil stains, and corrosion of reinforced steel.
When a specific nanotechnology paint or coating makes your building’s surface extremely hydro- and oleophobic (rejects water or oil), your maintenance cycle is significantly extended, and your cleaning requirements are dramatically slashed.
The photocatalytic coatings use light absorption to cleanse surfaces and the interior air.
The Benefits Of Nanotechnology Paints
The build-up of soot, pollution and grime on a building’s exterior surface is a maintenance problem and is usually addressed with the use of detergents, abrasion, or high-pressure water jets.
Cleaning with chemical detergents puts more toxins in the environment, and the process consumes high levels of energy and labour, driving up your maintenance costs. These costs and environmental effects are reduced by using nanotechnology paint.
- Super Hydrophilic
The photocatalytic paints use UV light from an interior fluorescence source or regular sunlight. They supply a strong oxidation power and superhydrophilicity.
The super hydrophilic action makes it impossible for dirt or water to attach to the surface, so dirt and stains are easily removed with water or rainfall. It is also used to defog glass and mirrors (e.g. car exterior mirrors).
- Destroys Bacteria
The oxidation reaction destroys bacteria on surfaces, removes foul odours from toilets, and reduces volatile organic compounds and toxins in the interior air of hotels, restaurants,
business facilities, laboratories, hospitals, and homes.
A vast array of hi-tech paints and materials are commercially available to support a healthy and strong home or office building.
