Nanovations Pty Ltd will showcase its latest nanotech surface modifications for the glass industry in the Innovative Product Pavilion at GlassBuild America 2014 expo in Las Vegas, Nevada on September 9th – 11th.

Visitors to the Nanovations Booth (#1144) will discover and experience the latest innovations in glass surface modification products, as well as other innovative product and service solutions that meet industry and customer needs. This will be the first time exhibiting at the GlassBuild America for the Australia-based manufacturer of innovative glass surface modifications and coatings. They will highlight several products with properties that have never been seen in America before.

Leading off Nanovations’s product innovation display will be their NG-1010 and NG 1314 glass coatings. These products are formulated with an inorganic sol-gel technology developed exclusively by Nanovations. Unlike traditional soft glass coatings that cover the surface structure of the glass with a thin layer of non-stick chemicals, the Nanovations glass treatment follows the contours of the glass surface right down to the nanolevel with a hard inorganic layer. The technology creates water and dirt repellent effects on glass substrates that are both invisible and incredibly thin. These glass treatments are perfectly suited to a wide range of application: from facades and automotive windshields to shower screens and solar panels.

The use of such thin layers offers numerous advantages to the older alternatives. It allows for consumption rates that are up to twelve times lower lower than traditional coatings, as well as a high resistance to abrasion. The use of inorganic material also provides UV resistance, a necessary feature for the long term use of such coatings on external areas. NG 1314 offers additional scratch-resistance and reduction in dry dust reducing.

Nanovations will also launch the N-Bond UV Primer at the GlassBuild 2014. N-Bond is a new technology that promotes molecular adhesion and can be used for the bonding of organic materials to glass surfaces. The product was developed to promote the adhesion of UV curable inks – such as those used in inkjets – to glass surfaces. An adhesion promotion system is usually required to print high resolution images on glass surfaces, and the N-Bond technology offers molecular bonding without creating a film-like layer on the glass surface. The technology also offers fast printing times, cost effectiveness, and truly astronomical coverage rates.

“We and our US representatives would like to welcome glass professional to visit us at our booth for further information, live demonstrations, or to find out how we can assist with a new revenue generation and cost saving leading edge technologies,” said a company representative. “Samples of the N-Bond and the automotive product Vision-Protects will also available in limited numbers.”

GlassBuild America is the premier North American expo for the glass, window, and door industries, and will take place from September 9th to the 11th at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
