Nano Coatings

 

The nano coatings, “liquid solids” composed of extremely tiny particles, possess unique characteristics like extreme flexibility, easy adhesion and resistance to corrosion and microbial growth that could profoundly change the manufacturing process.

Nano coating is getting more popular for special self-cleaning performance

There have been developed various production techniques coping with various uses such as antireflection coating as optical products, water-repelling and oil-repelling films that control adhesion of contamination, transparent conductive film necessary for flat panel displays and antistatic coatings.

What is Nanotechnology?

 

Nanotechnology is the engineering method in which fully functioning devices are manufactured at the molecular scale. Through this method, the devices that are manufactured will be having higher performance than the conventional ones. The items will be constructed from the bottom up with the help of high performance techniques and tools.

Nanotechnology (sometimes shortened to “nanotech”) is the study of manipulating matter on an atomic and molecular scale. Generally, nanotechnology deals with structures sized between 1 to 100 nanometre in at least one dimension, and involves developing materials or devices possessing at least one dimension within that size. Quantum mechanical effects are very important at this scale, which is in the quantum realm.
