Nilima Nanotechnologies offers a wide range of nanotechnology based coatings with protective properties for various surfaces.
Nanotechnology is the science and technology where dimensions and tolerances in the range of 0.1 nanometer (nm) to 100 nm play a critical role.One nanometer (nm) is one billionth, or 10-9, of a meter. To put that scale in another context, the comparative size of a nanometer to a meter is the same as that of a marble to the size of the earth. Essentially, this is the engineering of functional systems at the molecular scale. It is very diverse, ranging from extensions of conventional device physics to completely new approaches based upon molecular self-assembly.
"Nanotechnology" products that are on the market today are mostly gradually improved products where some form of nanotechnology enabled material is used in the manufacturing process. There is an ongoing quest to improve existing products by creating smaller components and better performance materials, all at a lower cost. Evolutionary nanotechnology should be viewed as a process that gradually will affect most companies and industries.
We are among the very few companies in India that have identified this unique opportunity and offer a wide range of products, for private and professional use.
Properties exhibited on the surface are
Easy to clean
Post application, surfaces (glass, wood, stone, ceramics etc.) exhibit long lasting hydrophobic properties i.e. water repellency. Coated surfaces would not require soap or any other chemicals for cleaning due to the dust repellant nature of the coating, resulting in minimizing efforts and saving costs
Additives can be added to plastic, paints, soaps & detergents, toothpastes and ceramics to exhibit anti bacterial properties. These are commonly used for surgical instruments, water purifiers, vacuum cleaners, sanitary ware and toys.
