Glass with Nanokote

Glass today is such a versatile surface that it can be used for virtually any function. It can be moulded, tinted, toughened, frosted, and used as floors, roofs, walls, mirrors, doors, kitchen splash backs and much more. Nanokote's glass corrosion coating and protection products extremely versatile with the greatest value derived from application to shower screens, pool fencing, balustrades, splash backs, architectural and frameless glass, or especially when exposed to sea spray.

 

Our glass corrosion coating and protection products create easy to clean and anti-fingerprint properties that enable manufacturers and processors to value add and enhance their products. These properties create an opportunity to command premium prices and a competitive advantage in the market place.

 

Glass Coating

 

 

Make Cleaning a Breeze:

 

Over time lime deposits can build up on shower screens and corrosion can result in permanent damage to the molecular structure of the screen. Corrosion may look like dirt but once it forms it cannot be removed, no matter how much the surface is cleaned. Nanokote's glass corrosion coating and protection stops corrosion by repelling water, dirt, oil, soaps and shampoo residues. With our glass corrosion coating and protection system, a shower screen will stay clear and bright requiring up to 90 per cent less cleaning, and will never need to be replaced.

 

Nanokote is highly abrasion resistant, 100 per cent 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, pool surrounds and balconies.

Repel Fingerprints:

 

Frosted glass can be produced from material blasting and acid etching. Both of these frosted finishes often show unsightly and difficult to remove fingerprints. This problem can be a thing of the past with our glass corrosion coating and protection system, which actively repels fingerprints. The coating formula also provides an easy-to- clean surface that prevents lime deposits in showers and protects against 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 stories of OEM's value adding their products using our glass corrosion coating and protection technology. Through value adding, our partners clearly differentiate their products, are able to command premium prices and position their brand as market leaders.

 

Industrial Integration:

 

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 for plants that process anywhere from 100 to 4,000 sqm /day of glass. In the case of smaller processors, we recommend manual or 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 processing facilities.

Industrial Application using Automated Equipment of Nanokote’s Protective Coating for Glass (Easy Clean Coating) vs. Competitors

 

  Nanokote Typical Competitor
Initial contact Angle (DIN EN 828)
  • 115 Degrees
  • Maximum 90 degrees
ASTM Scrub Resistance (ASTM D2486)
- Direct measure of durability
  • Independent tests (NATA approved laboratory) show less than 10 % change in contact angle after 10,000 double abrasion cycles.  Excellent durability and performance.
  • 10 year performance warranty when professionally applied.
  • Independent tests show the nearest competitor fails this test (less than 70 degree contact angle) after 1500 cycles.
Coefficient of Friction (Slippery Feel)
  • No change (important Occupational Health and Safety Issue).
  • Results in a slippery surface.  OH&S issue for glass companies.
    “slippery surface restricts applications as fittings cannot hold”
Process Automation
  • Nanokote Pty Ltd Intellectual Property.
  • Special coating material for spray application
  • Excellent efficiency, spray heads automatically adjust for the size of the glass to always optimise product usage.
  • Low cost. 
  • Low labour requirement.
  • Easy, fast installation. 
  • Quick turnaround from order to full commissioning
  • Fast production speeds.
  • Full closed loop control and full alarm setup.
  • Telemetry for constant monitoring
  • Equipment is designed and manufactured in Australia.
  • Designed as a modular fit to existing glass processing equipment or can be stand alone.
  • Process engineering support and worldwide service support
  • Typically rely on expensive capital equipment or require a high level of labour.  In both cases this results in a high cost process.
