CHOOSE NanoTech’s surface coatings are based on ceramic molecule coating, a net-like molecular structure which seals and protects your surface from dust, liquids, and paint. The nanotechnology used in CHOOSE NanoTech products enables all of our star features, including water, graffiti, and fingerprint resistance, scratch resistance suitable for a 9H hardness rating, and corrosion resistance. Read on to find out more.

9H Hardness Rating

“Hardness” is the resistance of a mineral or substance to being scratched. The Mohs Scale of Hardness was developed in 1812 by German mineralogist Friedrich Mohs, who selected ten minerals of distinctly different hardness, ranging from very soft – talc – to very hard – diamond. The test compares the resistance of a mineral or substance to being scratched by these ten minerals.

CHOOSE NanoTech’s surface coatings rate a 9H on the Mohs Scale of Hardness, the second-hardest rating as measured in accordance with JISK5400 regulation. It’s scratch-resistant to most commonly available substances, including keys, knives, brickwork and concrete rendering.

Hydrophobic Technology

CHOOSE NanoTech’s hydrophobic technology reduces the surface friction of a surface drastically, ensuring that water and other fluids simply bead up and roll off. The reduced surface friction ensures that fluid contact angles are increased so that droplets are shaped more like a sphere than like the usual hemisphere.

Your surface will be protected from rain and other fluids, including oils, resulting in a longer-lasting clean and greater wet weather visibility through windows and windscreens.

Anti-Graffiti and Anti-Fingerprint

CHOOSE NanoTech surface coatings seal surfaces and fill in pores and imperfections, resulting in a smooth surface that even solvent-based paints can’t bond to. The result of this is a superior paint-resistant and anti-graffiti surface, as evidenced by the fact that our car, when treated with Kube Bond Diamond 9H and then sprayed with oil-based spray paint, was able to be completely cleaned off with nothing more than a high-pressure hose.

The same features that allow for a graffiti-proof surface also mean that your surface, when treated with a CHOOSE NanoTech product, will resist fingerprints as well. The oil on your hands will have as little traction as the graffiti paint in the above test, and so is able to be wiped off with no trouble.

Corrosion Resistant

Exposure to air and moisture causes many surfaces to corrode or degrade, including leather, fabric, and the chassis of your car. CHOOSE NanoTech works to thoroughly coat and protect your surface from exposure to the elements, drastically reducing the opportunity for corrosion.
