Glass Coating

Smart Surface Protection for Glass

Glass is such a versatile surface that it can be used for virtually any function. It can be molded, tinted, toughened, frosted and used as shower screens, floors, rooftops, walls, mirrors, doors, kitchen splash backs and more.

NANOKOTE’s glass corrosion coating and protection products are equally diverse in their practical applications—especially when surfaces are exposed to lime scale and sea spray. Enhance the durability and effectiveness of shower screens, pool fencing, balustrades, splash backs, architectural and frameless panes with appropriate glass protection from NANOKOTE.

Our glass surface coating and protection products create easy-to-clean and anti-fingerprint properties that enable manufacturers and processors to add value and up-sell their products. These bonus properties create an opportunity to command premium prices and a competitive advantage in the marketplace.

90% less time cleaning

Over time, lime deposits can build up on shower screens and glass corrosion can result in permanent damage to the molecular structure of the screen. Glass corrosion may look like dirt but once it forms it cannot be removed, no matter how much the surface is cleaned.
NANOKOTE’s glass corrosion coating and protection stops corrosion by repelling water, dirt, oil, soaps and shampoo residues. With our glass corrosion coating and protection system, a shower screen will stay clear and bright requiring up to 90% less cleaning and will potentially never need to be replaced.

NANOKOTE is highly abrasion resistant, 100% UV stable and chemical resistant. It is also incredibly durable and is suitable for both interior and exterior applications. The glass coating protects external windows, commercial facades, rooftops, pool surrounds and balconies.

Industrial Integration

NANOKOTE has developed several processes to assist our industrial customers in reducing, and in some cases eliminating, the labor component of surface coating glass. We have engineered solutions for plants that process anywhere from 100 to 4,000m2 per day of glass. In the case of smaller processors, we recommend manual or semi-automatic applications, while medium to large organizations can benefit from our low cost, fully automated spray equipment which is modular and can be fitted to most processing facilities.

Nanokote Typical Competitor
Initial contact Angle (DIN EN 828)
  • 115 Degrees
  • Maximum 90 degrees
ASTM Scrub Resistance (ASTM D2486) – Direct measure of durability
  • Independent tests (NATA approved laboratory) show less than 10% change in contact angle after 10,000 double abrasion cycles Excellent durability and performance
  • 10-year performance warranty when professionally applied
  • Independent tests show the nearest competitor fails of this test (less than 70° contact angle) after 1500 cycles
Coefficient of Friction (Slippery Feel)
  • No change (important OH&S Issue)
  • Results in a slippery surface. OH&S issue for glass companies
  • “slippery surface restricts applications as fittings cannot hold”
Process Automation
  • Nanokote Pty Ltd Intellectual Property
  • Special coating material for spray application
  • Excellent efficiency, spray heads automatically adjust for the size of the surface to always optimise product usage.
  • Low cost
  • Low labour requirement
  • Easy, fast installation
  • Quick turnaround from order to full commissioning
  • Fast production speeds
  • Full closed loop control and full alarm setup.
  • Telemetry for constant monitoring
  • Equipment is designed and manufactured in Australia
  • Designed as a modular fit to existing processing equipment or can be stand alone
  • Process engineering support and worldwide service support
  • Typically rely on expensive capital equipment or require a high level of labour. In both cases this results in a high cost process
