Nanotechnology is the programming of matter at the atomic or molecular level (less than 100 nanometers on at least one dimension), to give pre-defined useful functions. Today nanotechnology has many applications in materials engineering, medicine, computing etc.

 

The Ultraclean Glass™ / Porcelain™ CONVERTER is classed as a nanotechnology solution due to the extremely thin monolayer formed, the self-organising nature of that monolayer, the molecular bonding that occurs with the glass, and the pro-programmed function (i.e. lower surface energy) imparted to the material through that self-organising and durably-bound monolayer.

The Ultraclean Glass™ / Porcelain™ CONVERTER is a nano-chemical solution incorporating the latest developments in nanotechnology research.

Due to this, our solution shows a much improved durability over most legacy solutions.

Ultrashield Corporation are the first manufacturer to offer a genuine lifetime performance guarantee for glass converted by a certified applicator and used in conjunction with the after-care program. Get the Facts...

Fact

Ultraclean Glass™ is as durable as normal glass and the effect can only be removed through physically damaging the glass surface. Get the Facts...

Fact

Currently the only practical and cost-effective way to achieve a self-organising hydrophobic layer one molecule thick with chemicals is through the sol-gel process. Get the Facts...

Fact

Covalent bonding between (silicon dioxide) glass molecules and the converter chemicals can only be achieved with a nano-scale product one molecule thick, incorporating bonding and functional (repellent) components. Get the Facts...

Fact

Currently only products utilising strong covalent bonding with the glass can achieve such industrial quality durability and performance. Get the Facts...

Fact

Abrasion testing is an industry-standard method for evaluating durability used in the coatings industry worldwide. Washability testing involves adding water or cleaning chemicals during abrasion testing, which closely mimics the normal cleaning process used to remove limescale from shower glass. Get the Facts...

Fact

Ultraclean Glass™ CONVERTER offers up to 100 times the durability of traditional silicone and fluorocarbon-based coating technologies in abrasion/washability testing. Get the Facts...
