Nanotechnology is the science and technology of small things that are less than 100nm in size. One nanometer is 10-9 meters or about 3 atoms long. Nano particles are in abundance in nature. the new thing about nanotechnology is that we can now control these structures and properties to make new functional materials and devices. We have entered the era of engineered nano materials and devices.
Another interesting area of nanotechnology results from starting at the atomic scale and building up materials and structures , atom by atom. This molecular engineering is called molecular or chemical nanotechnology. The nano materials created this way have resulted in a number of consumer products like treated bed sheets, clothes, ceramic & glass coatings for cars, flash memory, ceramic hair straighteners, industrial coatings etc. These materials have unique properties because of their small size. Researchers are using these unique properties of materials at this small scale to create new and exciting tools and products in all areas of science and engineering. Using nanotechnology, materials can effectively be made stronger, lighter, and more durable.
Nano Fabric Coatings: Nanoscale coatings of fabrics help them resist wrinkling, staining, and bacterial growth. We use fabric and leather nano coatings for seat covers in our NShield Glass Coating package for automobiles.
Glass Coatings: Clear nanoscale films on windshields, eyeglasses, computer, camera displays, windows, and other surfaces can make them water and residue repellent, anti fog, scratch resistant, anti reflective, self-cleaning, resistant to ultraviolet or infrared light,and antimicrobial. We provide Glass Coatings services for automobiles which not only gives high gloss shine to your car but also makes the paint surface protected from minor scratches, paint fading, corrosion, and stain marks.
Nano-engineered automotive materials: Products include high-power rechargeable battery systems; thermoelectric materials for temperature control; tires with lower rolling resistance; high-efficiency/low-cost sensors and electronics; thin-film smart solar panels; and fuel additives for cleaner exhaust and extended range.
Antimicrobial Coatings:The development of antimicrobial agents with low toxicity and ability to inhibit microbial contamination is a key issue in the development of new coatings for healthcare, packaging and food and pharmaceutical production. Antimicrobial coatings are specially recommended for hospitals, pathological labs and public areas to minimize the risk of nosocomial infections (hospital acquired infections) and other pathogenic contagious micro-organisms. These coatings are effective against a broad spectrum of bacteria. NShield Solutions provides Antimicrobial nano coating, Silver Bullet AM which is chemical and temperature tolerant and inhibits bacterial growth. It is a high gloss, high durability water based epoxy that contains a broad spectrum antimicrobial agent. Once applied, it has the ability to protect the coating surface from a broad spectrum of bacteria such as e.coli, salmonella and listeria as well as fungus such as mold, mildew and algae. Silver Bullet AM works by disrupting the reproduction and inhibiting metabolism of microbial cells.
Nanomedicine: Researchers are looking at ways that nanotechnology can improve vaccines, including vaccine delivery without the use of needles. Researchers are also looking for ways to grow complex tissues with the goal of one day growing human organs for transplant.
Nano Environment: Nanoparticles are being developed to clean industrial water pollutants in ground water through chemical reactions that render the pollutants harmless.
