Advanced Technology

  • CHOOSE NanoTech specializes in manufacturing high performance coatings for industries for years Since 2010, CHOOSE starts to have it's own brand - CHOOSE NanoTech - to develop high performance coating for consumer market.

 

 

Properties

 

Our coatings are designed to provide an ultra thin, hard, transparent and permanent layer that protects surfaces from environmental factors.  The ceramic coating is extremely water repellent (hydrophobic), so water and any dissolved contaminants such as lime scale and dirt, run off the surface.  Any deposited dust and dirt already on the surface is picked up by water droplets, resulting in a self cleaning effect.  The hydrophobic nature of the ceramic coating results in a surface that prevents mould and bacterial growth.

Unlike alternative coatings, when our coating is applied to a clean and dry surface, the ceramic bonds to the surface to give a tough, hard wearing finish that does not require re-application over time.  This makes our range of coatings ideal for both indoor and outdoor applications.

The coating remains stable up to high temperatures (750 C) and can provide protection in corrosive and abrasive applications.

 


 

ANTI WETTING

 

Keeping materials and surfaces dry is an important factor in many situations.  Our coatings can provide superior anti-wetting performance, even to normally absorbent and porous materials.

ANTI CORROSION

 

Corrosion of materials occurs as the surface chemically reacts with materials present in the environment.  Our coatings produce a transparent, inert ceramic layer between the materials surface and the environment to help minimise these reactions from occurring.

 

 


 

SELF CLEANING

 

It is important to keep some surfaces as clean as possible.  This can be a time consuming and costly endeavour.  Our coatings can provide a self cleaning interface between the material and environmental dust and dirt.  The resulting finish has self cleaning properties and significantly reduces the time and effort required to maintain any surfaces functional use.

 

 


 

Materials

 

Our coatings can be used to coat almost any material type;

 

STONE

 

Applying DuralBond to porous construction materials such as stone, concrete and marble makes them hydrophobic. Water no longer absorbs into the material carrying with it contaminants that can lead to staining.  Materials that age quickly such as concrete can remain looking like new for years.

When water absorbs into porous materials during the day and then freezes at night.  The ice crystals expand in volume causing the solid material structure to break apart.  Over time this damage causes bricks, concrete etc to disintegrate.  Introducing a hydrophobic surface to the material prevents this damage from occurring by preventing water absorption.  

Porous stones are also excellent growth media for plants such as moss. As the plants grow, the roots can travel into the material and cause damage over time as well as ruining the look of the material.  Until now, regular maintenance has been the most effective long term solution to this problem.  DuralBond stops moss and other plants and microbes from growing on the material.  Reducing maintenance time and increasing the new look of the substrate for longer.

 

 


 

METAL

 

Most metals usually require some kind of surface treatment to protect the material.  This usually takes the form of various primer and paint layers.  Using a transparent ceramic coating such as DuralBond not only results in a superior protective layer, but also enables the natural colour and finish of the metal to be displayed.

Dural bond can even be applied over treated surfaces to add an additional protective layer which helps maintain the desired finish of the material.

 

 


 

WOOD

 

Wood is an extremely versatile and beautiful material.  In order to preserve wood for longer, it is often treated with a variety of stains, varnishes etc.  With DuralBond, you can protect the wood yet maintain its natural untreated finish. Alternatively, DuralBond can be applied directly to a treated wood finish to increase its durability and further reduce the absorption of the wood.

 

 


 

TEXTILE

 

The range of modern textiles is extensive and dwarfed only by the even larger range of applications.  DuralBond can turn even the most water absorbing textiles into water proof layers.  Whether its woven cotton, leather, nylon or paper, we can prevent your textiles from damaging water and stains.
