Nanotec Pty Ltd based in Sydney, Australia announced today the start of the marketing of itÂs self-cleaning/easy to clean product for pavers and concrete and a product which gives glass dirt-repellent, water repellent self cleaning properties through selective surface treatment with nanoparticle solutions.
The materials have been tested in several environments and have shown long lasting to permanent durability. Both products withstand 10,000 hours of weathering in several tests and are absolute UV stable.
Thanks to the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), Nanotec Pty Ltd was able to display its first products at the HIA exhibition in Sydney. The UTS Nanohouse Initiative is a collaboration between the best of Australia's scientists, engineers, architects, designers and builders - working together to design and later build a new type of ultra-energy efficient house and exploiting the new materials being developed by nanotechnology.
Nanotec Pty LTD sees a huge potential in the treatment of surfaces with nano-impregnations and nanocoatings, because of the significantly reduced cleaning cycles, the saving in water and maintenance costs and the environment friendly water based product lines.
Harald Stulajter co-founder and CEO of Nanotec said his goals for the Australian market is to replace all solvent based conventional silicon and siloxane impregnations with much more durable nano-treatments.
ÂAustralia is the perfect market for our nanotechnology products due to the ongoing water restrictions and the strong UV radiation. In these conditions NanotecÂs products will pay for themselves.Â
