The term nanocoating refers to nanoscale (i.e. with a thickness of a few tens to a few hundreds of nanometers) thin-films that are applied to surfaces in order create or improve a material’s functionalities such as corrosion protection, water and ice protection, friction reduction, antifouling and antibacterial properties, self-cleaning, heat and radiation resistance, and thermal management.
Engineered from Quartz, a mineral composed of silicon and oxygen. Here atoms are formed in a continuous framework of SiO2 silicon-oxygen tetrahedra, with each oxygen being shared between two tetrahedra , giving an overall chemical formula of SiO2. When applied to glass, it modifies the screen making it 10x stronger.
