What is NanoMoldCoating?
Nanotechnology is one of the fastest growing scientific and engineering disciplines worldwide. It is currently being used in fields such as bioscience, medicine, engineering, pharmacology, material sciences, and defense to name a few.
Nanotechnology involves the engineering of functional devices or systems by controlling matter on an atomic and molecular scale.
Scientists now have the ability to manipulate the atomic structure of the very molecules that make up the materials in the world around us. This ability means virtually limitless possibilities and enormous growth potential for the improvement of existing products as well as the invention of new materials and products.
Nanotechnology deals with structures of 1 to 100 nanometers in size, and refers to the ability to tailor make materials or devices within that size in an effort to manufacture high performance products.
A nanometer is a unit of measurement that is one billionth of one meter. By comparison a single human hair is approximately 80,000 nanometers in width. To put this into further perspective consider that a nanometer is to a golf ball what the golf ball is to the size of the earth.
Unusual properties arise in materials at the nanoscale. These properties may differ in very important ways from the properties of bulk materials at the macro scale. Exciting improvements can be made to materials based on the discovery of these new properties.
The very structure of these materials can be changed and improved through nanotechnology. For example the plastics industry has embraced the use of nano materials to provide plastics with greater conductivity, increased strength, flexibility and durability, and unique surface characteristics, etc…
Other nanoscale materials can be used in thin films to make them anti-reflective, self-cleaning, ultraviolet or infrared-resistant, antifog, anti-microbial, scratch-resistant, electrically conductive, anti-stick, water-repellent (hydrophobic) and oil-repellant (oleophobic).
NanoMoldCoating® is one of these innovative new polymer films.
