Nanocoating

Nanocoating changes the material at a molecular level by applying nanostructures. When these structures contact the substrate they create a self-organized hydrophobic layer with a thickness of only a few dozen nanometers. The nanoparticles create bond firmly to the surface and ensure that dirt, water and other fluids are repelled (lotus effect).

A nanocoating can be applied to virtually all materials. It is temperature-resistant up to approx. 350°C and ideally suited for fine-pored materials and high-precision applications such as ultra-thin non-stick coatings for easy removal of molded parts from the mold or as a protective film for frequently cleaned surfaces (glass, facades, etc.).

Impreglon products for nanocoating

  • MF®

    Microfinish®

    The transparent thin-film corrosion protection

    Microfinish® is a wear-resistant and transparent corrosion protection. It can even be used for complex three-dimensional component geometries without developing the stretch cracks typical of this type of use.

  • NF®

    Nanofinish®

    High-precision nano-coatings

    Based on very thin layers, Nanofinish® follows the contour of the relevant part, creating infiltration resistant nonstick coatings.

Microfinish® – The transparent thin-film corrosion protection

Microfinish® is a wear-resistant and transparent corrosion protection. It can even be used for complex three-dimensional component geometries without developing the stretch cracks typical of this type of use.

The highly flexible and micro fine thin-layer process allows pre-coated components to be treated using a remodeling process. The coating process is also suitable for smooth, polished or finely structured surfaces. The layer, which is a mere 0.3 to 5 µm thin, is completely transparent and contour-following so that the shine or structure of the original surface are maintained. No reworking, such as polishing the surface again, is necessary.

The coating is temperature resistant up to approx. 350 °C. Due to the relatively low process temperature of below 50 °C, there is no danger of warpage or discoloring of the components to be coated.

Microfinish® is suitable for all conductive metal surfaces and is especially suited as a corrosion and scratch protection coating for aluminum alloys or as a nonstick coating for molding tools and punch films.

Nanofinish® – High-precision nano-coatings

Based on very thin layers, Nanofinish® follows the contour of the relevant part, creating infiltration resistant nonstick coatings.

Damage to the surface coating usually leads to infiltration of the function layers. This is not the case with nanocoating: Nanofinish® ensures that the damage is restricted to the local area.

Nanofinish® can be applied from a thickness of 100 nm on nearly all substrates and is temperature-resistant up to 350 °C. This nanocoating is particularly well suited for polished components and high precision applications, e.g. as an ultra-thin nonstick coating for easy removal of molded parts or as a protective film for a wide range of surfaces.
