Are nanotechnology products environmentally friendly and safe?
The nanotechnology treatments developed by R & R Group and distributed by Renaissance Surface Protection provide maximum protection against limescale, mold and other contaminants in full compliance with health and with special attention to the environment. All products are, in fact, biodegradable and do not pollute because they use water as a carrier and are free of harmful chemicals and solvents. They are also antibacterial.
Can construction and restoration professionals afford to ignore these innovative products?
The foremost challenge of building and remodeling today is the protection of the building. It becomes critical to adopt effective, well tested solutions and technologies that are sensitive to the environment. The products offered by R & R Group designers and distributed by Renaissance Surface Protection can be indispensable for developing sustainable urban regeneration together with architectural quality while reducing the environmental impact.
What parameters measure the effectiveness of protective nanotechnology treatments?
The main parameter and the most characteristic, concerns the hydrophobic properties developed by the treatment on the surface and is measured by the contact angle. The higher the value of the contact angle, ie more spherical the drop of water on the surface the more hydrophobic the treated surface.
Is protective nanotechnology similar to protective varnishes?
Absolutely not. The protective nanotechnology does not add layers or surface film. It interacts with the nano molecular surface level changing it in a way that causes it to repel dirt and water while being imperceptible to the schematic structure. After the self-organization, the nano-particles remain anchored to the surface by generating an invisible protective barrier that makes it resistant by external contaminants, without affecting the breath-ability of the structure. This is done by lowering the energy of the material surface, which passes from a high level (state in which it retains dirt) to a very low level(which repels dirt).
What is the application process and how long does it take before you see results?
The process of applying protective nanotechnology is relatively simple, just spray the product on the surface to be protected. The technology which
is the process of self-organization of nano-particles, occurs at ambient temperature and atmospheric pressure. The effect is already visible after a few minutes .
What fields apply nanotechnology?
Today nanotechnology is used in many lines of research, including: molecular biology, chemistry, materials science, physics, mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, electronics and bio-engineering. You can see nanotechnology in use today in the fields of: medicine, information technology and energy production.
What surfaces can be protected effectively with nanotechnology?
The nanotechnology developed and tested by R & R Group and distributed by Renaissance Surface Protection has produced excellent results on stone, brick, plaster, glass, wood, fabric, metal, painted walls, marble, steel and various metals. R & R Group has been able to produce a long lasting, satisfactory result on most every material tested. It is all about selecting the most appropriate formulation for the medium you wish to treat.
What is nanotechnology?
Nanotechnology is the science of manipulating and organizing the smallest elements of matter. The word ‘nano’ is actually used to describe particles as small as one-millionth of a millimeter.
