What is nanotechnology

Nanotechnology refers to all applications and techniques within the range of 1 nanometer (nm) to 100 nm. One nanometer (nm) is one billionth, or 10-9 of a meter. To put that scale in another context, the comparative size of a nanometer to an orange is the same as of that orange to the earth.

“Nanotechnology” products that are on the market today are mostly gradually improved products where some form of nanotechnology enabled material is used in the manufacturing process. There is an ongoing quest to improve existing products by creating smaller components and better performing materials, all at a lower cost. Evolutionary nanotechnology should be viewed as a process that gradually will affect most companies and industries.

Nano coating

Nano coating describes the application of nanostructures to surfaces. After treatment, these surfaces can become super hydrophobic. This means that these surfaces are modified and therefore have a water repellent characteristic. This makes easier cleaning possible (easy-to-clean).

Such treated surfaces are chemically stable.

After the appropriate product has been applied to the cleaned material, the nanoparticles are rearranged to the desired structure. Metal, glass, textiles, plastics, wood and mineral surfaces can be treated. Use a nano coating for example in bathrooms, on wooden garden furniture or as self-cleaning facade protection. This way you protect them against dirt or weathering and at the same time you save time and money on the use of cleaning agents.


Nanoskin strives to produce all its products in a responsible way and to make the products themselves environmentally friendly. Our nano coatings consist mainly of silicon dioxide (SiO2). The raw materials for SiO2 are present in large quantities in nature and are environmentally friendly. Most of our products do not even contain VOC and are food safe. The reduction of the need for cleaning agents or other chemical products also contributes to this.
