Nanotechnology in Car Paint Care Products
Frequently presented as one of the brightest technologies of the future, interest in nanotechnology is growing worldwide. There are thousands of possible applications from health care to car care. This is where the revolutionary car paint care products and new car paint sealants come in!
So here are the goods: You may want to sit down for this one!
The word “nano” comes from Greek nanos, meaning “dwarf”. It is also an SI (International System of Units) prefix denoting a factor of 10−9, or 1-Billionth of a meter (a nanometer, abbreviated nm). To give you a point of relevance, a average human hair is about 80,000 nm in diameter, which is 20,000 nm shy of 1 millimeter (mm). Seems pretty small, doesn't it?
Well, don't get too impressed by the small size of a nanometer just yet. The simiconductor world, responsible for our computer and communications technology is already working in picometer technologies. A picometer is a Trillionth of a meter, or 10−12. Now that's small!
In car paint care, nanotechnology refers to the study, creation and application of molecular materials, in particular nano-coatings, with a particle size that is typically less than 100 nanometers. The significance of a polymer nano-coating is that is can form a very tight bond with the undulating surface of most substrates. All substrates used in the automotive arena, including glass, paint, plastic, rubber, aluminum, chrome, stainless steel, textiles, and leather will have many pits, fibers, valleys and unevenness when viewed under high magnification. These undulations allow a nano-coating to get a tight grip on the surface.
There are four reasons that nano-coatings are important in car paint care products (surface care in general, actually):
- The better "grip" a polymer can get on a surface (substrate), the less likely it will be that another substance or element can knock it off (break through the coating). This has a direct relationship with the coating's durability and tolerance to detergents and chemicals.
- A nano-coating has a particle size that's smaller than water. As a result, nano-coatings are hydrophobic (lock water out).
- A nano-coating fills micro-size pits in glossy surfaces, further improving the gloss.
- Nano-particle UV inhibitors are perfectly clear, yet they absorb UV light energy.
Autopia-CarCare.com is now carrying one of the industry's most popular synthetic paint sealant, Wolfgang Deep Gloss Paint Sealant 3.0. It is a sealant composed of German super-polymers that offers unmatched reflection and protection.
Autopia-CarCare’s featured protective products, including Wolfgang Deep Gloss Paint Sealant 3.0 and Wolfgang Deep Gloss Spritz Sealant, are premium, high-strength, polymer, nano-coatings. Each coating is designed to bond properly with the intended substrate. They will resist water, all forms of detergent, and all but the most extreme acids, alkaline chemicals and petroleum solvents.
When applied to paint, Wolfgang Deep Gloss Paint Sealant 3.0 seals and protects at the nano level. With each additional coating your paint and glass become smoother and will reflect light more perfectly. If you’re the enthusiast that prefers to layer your sealants, we typically suggest 2-3 coats of Wolfgang Deep Gloss Paint Sealant 3.0 for maximum performance. This is what creates the extreme shine and unmatched protection!
We invite you to explore the Wolfgang difference for yourself. Who knew that nanotechnology could be so much fun?! We encourage you to try the world renowned Wolfgang Deep Gloss Paint Sealant 3.0. It will take your paints appearance to the next level. Oh, and protect it for months, as well!
