Coatings Holy Grail

Nanokote offers a range of permanent surface coatings for builders and architects offering environmentally friendly protection.

Concrete, more than any human-made material, has altered the way we build. Its tremendous strength and the independence to construct almost any contour creates endless structural possibilities from office facades and highway obstacles to industrial infrastructure and more.

Mineral compounds are the keystone of modern construction. Stone varieties including sandstone, granite, concrete, pavers, roof render, tiles and masonry surfaces are susceptible to moisture damage, leading to the corrosion of steel reinforcement, development that is alga and moss on exterior surfaces.

For sale in water or solvent base, Nanokote’s SOL variety of products are transparent and a single part, permeating nanotechnology impregnation coatings. The product uses molecular bonding to form a hydrophobic surface while still enabling the surface. Thehydrophobic surface texture is not going to be altered or make surfaces slippery which makes for an easy to preserve, self-cleaning process on treated porous mineral surfaces.

The surface coatings will also be capable to prolong the life and reduce care for substrates including:

  • Infrastructure concrete (roads, rail, ports, etc)
  • Glass such as balustrades, glass pool fences and shower screens
  • Ceramic sanitary ware and tiles
  • Textiles like that used in air filter media
  • Easy To clean, anti corrosion, anti-graffiti coating for a range of surfaces.

Nanotechnology Surface Coatings Applications

Uses for Nanokote’s surface coatings are many and varied including:

  • Anti Scratch and Anti finger print coatings for stainless steel
  • Anti Bacterial and Easy To Clean protection for cloths
  • Long-Term Easy for ceramics and glass
  • Anti Finger Print coatings for frosted glass including a wide selection of cosmetic colours

Nanokote can implement products on site or has program systems designed to apply online at point of manufacture. Nanokote brings the knowledge and experience from worldwide OEM references and case studies.

NanoMech Receives 2006 Innovation Award

Coating Technology Recognized as One of the Most Innovative Micro/Nano Technologies of 2006

NanoMech, LLC has received an award from R&D Magazine for producing one of the 25 technologies of 2006. NanoMech won the award because of its cubic boron nitride coatings for cutting tools and wear applications. R&D Magazine and its Newsletter ran an inaugural MICRO/NANO 25 Competition to select the micro- and nanotechnologies of 2006. As stated by the newsletter’s editors, the products, procedures and inventions they chosen are “groundbreaking technologies which are very likely to have the largest impact on their precise sectors and society” Criteria used for choosing the winners contained the uniqueness of this technology, the price and performance that the tech exemplifies, and the creation compared to existing technology.

The award provides additional national and international fame for NanoMech and its own nanostructured coating technologies, following closely on the heels of the 2005 Excellence in Technology Award that NanoMech received before this season by Frost and Sullivan, a global consulting company known for its high speed study on market trends and new technology. In announcing the award, Micro/Nano Newsletter noted that the program of cBN nanoparticles “was proven to dramatically improve the price and effectiveness of the surface coatings of carbide cutting tools” This innovation promises to boost the machining productivity for producers who are searching for ways to make more.

NanoMech’s patented NanoSpray coating procedure involves physical spray of materials, such as nanoparticles, under the effect of an electric field. Nanoparticles are the tiniest scale materials presently available to scientists for industrial and industrial applications. They range in size from about 1/1,000feet to 1/10,000th the diameter of a human hair. From the NanoSpray procedure, the field enables deposition of the nanoparticles on the outside to form a uniform coat of desired depth on complex or simple, three dimensional geometries. Along with cutting edge tools and use applications, the business is pursuing important programs of this technology, such as anti-corrosion, lubricating, biocidal and biocompatible coatings, in addition to thin films to be used in microelectronics programs.

R&D Magazine noted that there’s been a flurry of activity from micro/nanotechnology, leading to “a slew of products, procedures, and possible device arrangements, all taking the promise of advancing upon current technology” The MICRO/NANO 25 Competition aimed to determine which of these represent true breakthroughs. The exclusive award recognizes “the very best of the finest in micro/nanotechnology innovations made in 2006.”

Frost & Sullivan Selects NanoMech for Technology Award

NanoMech, LLC has received a 2005 Award for Excellence in Technology from Frost & Sullivan, a global growth consulting company known because of its high quality research on marketplace trends, increase opportunities, and significant new technologies.

The award provides national recognition for its organized coating technology and NanoMech. Specifically, Frost & Sullivan recognized NanoMech’s development of organized cBN (cubic boron nitride) coatings for cutting tools. The coatings are derived from a patented electrostatic spray coating procedure initially developed at the University of Arkansas with support from the National Science Foundation (NSF).

National Science Foundation Awards Grant to NanoMech

The National Science Foundation has awarded a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant to NanoMech, LLC to fund development of nanoparticle-based capacitors. NanoMech’s exceptional process used to form the capacitors creates devices with features that are considerably improved. These improvements are vital to the electronic equipment production sector which increasingly seeks miniaturization by incorporating passive apparatus into printed circuit boards.

Nanoparticles are the smallest scale materials currently available to scientists for biomedical and industrial applications. They range in size from about 1/1,000th to 1/10,000th the width of a human hair.

“Our novel approach to depositing nano-sized ferroelectric particles in an ordered, multi-layer assembly should provide substantially better performance in comparison with the random particle arrangement that’s formerly been achieved. As new generations of consumer electronics need constantly increasing component densities through use of embedded capacitors, this invention could end up being a big boost to U.S electronic equipment makers,” says Ajay P. Malshe, Chief Technology Officer of NanoMech.
