Glass today is such a versatile surface that it can be used for virtually any function. It can be molded, tinted, toughened, frosted, and used as floors, roofs, glass walls, mirrors, doors, kitchen splash backs and much more.
Nanokote’s products and application systems for glass create easy to clean and anti-fingerprint properties that enable manufacturers and processors to value add and enhance their products. The properties create an opportunity to command premium prices and a competitive advantage in the market place.
Over time lime deposits can build up on shower screens. Glass corrosion also results in permanent damage to the molecular structure of the glass. It looks like dirt but once it forms it cannot be removed, no matter how much the surface is cleaned. Nanokote stops the corrosion process by repelling everything, including water, dirt, oil, soap and shampoo residue. A shower screen will stay clear and bright requiring up to 90% less cleaning and will never need to be replaced.
Nanokote is highly abrasion resistant, 100% UV stable and highly chemical resistant. It is also incredibly durable and is suitable for both interior and exterior applications. It protects external windows, commercial glass facades, roofs, glass pool surrounds or balconies.
Frosted glass can be produced from material blasting and acid etching. Both of these frosted finishes can suffer from unsightly and difficult to remove fingerprints. This problem can be a thing of the past. Nanokote Anti-Fingerprint coating will prevent fingerprints. It will also provide an easy-to-clean surface that prevents lime deposits in showers protecting long-term against glass corrosion.
A range of decorative colours using environmentally safe pigments that give exciting new looks and finishes for architectural interiors are also available.
Nanokote has many successful references of OEM’s value adding their products utilising Nanokote technology in this sector. Through value adding, our partners clearly differentiate their products, are able to command premium prices and position their brand as market leaders.
Nanokote has developed a number of processes to assist our industrial customers in reducing and in some cases eliminating the labour component of coating glass. We have engineered solutions that are ideal for implementation in glass plants that process anywhere from 100 to 4,000 sqm/day of glass. In the case of smaller processors we recommend manual or in some cases semi-automatic applications while for our medium to large customers we have designed low cost fully automated spray equipment. This equipment is modular and can be fitted to most all glass processing facilities.
