Nano Coatings

Nano Coatings

Nano coatings are very thin film coatings, often transparent, but with very robust pinhole free finishes that act as excellent barrier coats for corrosion prevention. Typical dry film thicknesses are 5 to 10 microns. They are available from Blocksil for both porous and non-porous surfaces.

Nano coatings are often used for anti-graffiti and for energy saving stay clean purposes. Their ability to be cleaned with all manner of detergents, solvents and wipes makes them ideal for this type of application. Nano coatings are usually applied by special cloth or brush, but can be sprayed if suitable PPE is worn to avoid inhaling the atomised coating.

The coatings will air cure and are usually touch dry after 20 minutes at ambient temperatures. Full cure can take up to five days but can be shortened with additional heat.
