What is Nanotechnology?

Nanotechnology: The Science of Protection

Nanotechnology, the promise of the future, offers a revolutionary approach to protecting valuable assets and reducing cleaning times. This groundbreaking science redefines how fluids and contaminants interact with any material surface, delivering unprecedented benefits.

At NanoEnzo we have developed a range of durable nano coatings that protect every conceivable surface. Microscopic particles of silicon dioxide are carefully manipulated to create a strong bond with the surface, resulting in a range of benefits that were previously unthinkable. Our coatings are incredibly thin and invisible to the naked eye, yet provide an impermeable barrier to liquids and dirt while preserving the appearance and texture of the surface.

The benefits of our nanocoatings are versatile:

Simple, DIY application
Safe and non-toxic
Food safe
Reduces cleaning time and chemical use by 90%
Scratch resistant
Long lasting: up to 5 years for most coatings
Protects against stains, UV damage and water damage
Extends the life of assets and improves their value
Nanotechnology offers unprecedented possibilities for the future. By applying nanoparticles, we create superior surface coatings that are smoother, more resilient and more durable than ever before. Whether glass, metal, wood, stone or fabric, our coatings provide unparalleled protection and performance.

At NanoEnzo we continue to innovate and strive to continuously improve our products. The applications of nanotechnology are endless and we believe these solutions will soon be part of everyday life.

What is nanotechnology

As explained under 'What is nanotechnology', this concerns a technique or elements on a scale of a millionth of a millimeter. To get an idea of ‚Äč‚Äčthis, a small fact: a human hair has a thickness of 80,000 nanometers. A nano is therefore much, much smaller than the thickness of a human hair and is active at the simple molecular level.

The same applies to our nanocoatings. Our nano coatings contain (environmentally friendly) nano particles with which we add something to the material you apply and protect, making it water, grease and dirt repellent and making it more sustainable due to the protection that our coatings also provide. In other words, less maintenance, less cleaning and therefore lower costs. And not to forget, a reduction of your CO2 footprint.

Can the treated material still breathe?

Our nano coatings are designed to protect materials without affecting their breathability. The unique composition of nanoparticles forms an ultra-thin layer on the surface of the material, which still allows air to flow freely through the material, allowing it to 'breathe'. This property is essential for many applications, such as clothing, furniture, and building materials, because it ensures comfort and functionality. NanoEnzo's coatings provide effective protection against liquids, dirt and other contaminants, while at the same time preserving the natural properties of the material.

Does NanoEnzo have a facility service for applying coatings?

NanoEnzo works on a project basis and takes care of everything regarding the cleaning and treatment of the material used and the desired effect. Only in this way can NanoEnzo guarantee quality and sustainability.

So yes, NanoEnzo has a facility service but can also easily scale up by deploying its network of professional and certified partners, which we sometimes do in connection with shorter distances to the project and reducing the CO2 footprint.

Is Nanocoating harmful to health,

Risicobeoordeling van nanoproducten

The risk of a substance is determined by the combination of the possible effects and the dose to which we are exposed.

With nanoparticles, it is often not enough to know the weight of the dose: the size, surface area and/or number of particles can be just as important. Research is needed per application to determine what effect may occur and what dose size is most suitable.

Even if nanoparticles can be detected in a product, it is often unknown whether exposure to the same particles occurs. When nanoparticles are released into a biological environment, they have a strong tendency to stick together; this can be quite firm (aggregates) or loose (agglomerates). All kinds of other substances also 'stick' to the surface, for example proteins in the bloodstream, and this affects their distribution, breakdown and excretion. Whether and to what extent these particles are absorbed by the body is often unknown. When nanoparticles are inhaled, it is possible that they end up in the lungs. Therefore, additional safety measures are recommended when working with or producing powdered or fibrous nanomaterials.

For degradable particles, the risk assessment can be based on the substances of which they consist. Scientists agree on this. For example, if a calcium salt in the form of nanoparticles is added to toothpaste, it can be demonstrated that it dissolves completely in the stomach and does not pose a health risk.

In the Netherlands, RIVM conducts research into the safety of nanomaterials on behalf of various ministries and the NVWA. The RIVM also reviews the many publications and reports that appear on this subject

There is a special knowledge and information point for nanotechnology risks set (KIR-Nano).
