NanoSlic Ceramic Coating Technology

Chemistry

Forms a dense network of strong chemical bonds

Based on a revolutionary ceramic platform chemistry, NanoSlic presents a new approach to protective nanocoatings. Recent advances in polymer science, surface chemistry and nanotechnology have led to state-of-the-art coating solutions.

NanoSlic’s unique hybrid structure works in 3 ways:

  1. It forms a dense network of strong chemical bonds to the substrate
  2. It forms an inert, high-performance binder polymer layer
  3. It develops a highly hydrophobic and oleophobic contact surface

Other chemistries, such as self-assembling monolayers (SAMs) and sol-gel chemistry, provide only a limited and temporary surface modification when exposed to real-world conditions.

Properties

NanoSlic protective coatings have a hydrophobic and oleophobic surface with contact angles of 107°/water and 64°/n-hexadecane. Water and organic based materials bead up, roll off and leave the easy to clean. This creates a low energy surface which means a very slippery surface that reduces friction, drag and heat build-up.

Waterproof hard surfaces by using NanoSlic to repel water, oil and chemicals. Because liquids cannot penetrate the coating, NanoSlic also has anti-corrosion benefits. NanoSlic can be applied to metals, glass, polymers, and other materials as a clear and permanent, non-toxic coating.

NanoSlic coatings are highly resistant to chemicals, resistant to abrasion and also extreme temperatures, which makes it ideal for electrical insulation.

Usually supplied as low-viscosity liquids, NanoSlic coatings can be applied by spray, dip or wipe.
