Qu'est-ce que c'est la nanotechnologie ?

par Dr. Elio Keller, President Ceracoat Industries

La définition de la nanotechnologie la plus couramment utilisée par le gouvernement et l'industrie couvre les structures, les dispositifs et les systèmes présentant des propriétés et des fonctions nouvelles en raison de l'agencement de leurs atomes dans une plage de 1 à 100 nanomètres.

De nombreux domaines d'activité contribuent aux nanotechnologies, notamment la physique nucléaire, la science des matériaux, la chimie, la biologie, l'informatique, l'ingénierie électrique et l'ingénierie mécanique.

En raison de l'extrême largeur et de la généralité de cette définition, beaucoup préfèrent utiliser le terme "nanotechnologies". Pour des raisons de clarté, il est également utile de distinguer les perspectives à court terme et à long terme ou de diviser le champ en phases de la première à la quatrième génération.

More detailed, Nanotechnology is the description of the science that is able to treat particles that are one billionth of a meter. This is about 100000x thinner than a strand of hair. Scientist have created microscopes which allow them to see them and tools like reactors and mills to manipulate these tiny particles.

With CERACOAT nano technology we are able to create very thin coatings, like a thin protection “film” on any surface, to protect these surfaces from all exterior influences (liquid, dirt, temperature, scratching, fire, odor, wear). By molecular self-organization, the nano-metric building blocks of Ceracoat form an invisible layer / coating on any surfaces. This nano-structuring process works downwards, sideways and upwards resulting in a 3-dimensional protective network. At the same time, the positive characteristics like breathing activity and touch of the surface are retained completely. Crevices on surfaces are usually much larger and make this technology ideal for use as a surface coating because the particles are small enough to fill these crevices and not be detectable to the human touch.

Thanks to the latest developments in NANO technology, there is now a product that reduces the Effort for cleaning, saves time and money and works on ALL surfaces from bathroom tiles, floors and kitchen sinks to furniture and even clothes: CERACOAT

The CERACOAT product family (absorbent and non-absorbent surfaces, vehicle care, engine protectant) works on all surfaces from glass and textiles to metal or plastics. With so many possible applications, CERACOAT is the essential all-purpose surface Protection in every-day life all around the house and car.

Simply for perfect results, most CERACOAT products/liquids are colorless and form an invisible protection coating on all surfaces. Dirt and stain do not adhere to surfaces any longer. Even heavy stains like red wine stains, which can ruin expensive clothes or carpets, are simply wiped off!

Due to its superior product qualities, CERACOAT owns distinctive advantages. Particularly in a saturated market, CERACOAT offers unique growth potentials and new market chances to retailers. Since CERACOAT can be used for a wide range of applications, an extremely large Group of buyers is targeted: The whole population!

What is the contact angle?


The degree to which a liquid spreads on a solid when it comes into contact with it.

One measure of wetting is the CONTACT ANGLE.

Complete wetting is referred to as spreading.
