The Science Behind Our Treatments

e9’s nanotechnology based surface treatments permanently change the molecular structure of the treated surface to help deter the buildup of organic and inorganic materials. The use of nanotechnology means that all reactions occur on a nanoscale (10-9  or one billionth of a meter). Using nanoscale material, allows our engineers and scientists to work with a very large surface area . This means that when nanoscale materials are used as a treatment, there is more contact with the surface material (metal or glass) than with conventional treatments, creating a stronger bond. 

A STRONGER bond means longer lifespan.

 

Unlike coatings and paints, e9 Treatments do not alter the appearance, conductivity or function of the treated surface.  Particulates may still be found on the treated material; however, e9 Treatments help prevent bonding of these particulates to the surface. This means that the surface can be easily cleaned by rain, water spray or wiping the surface with a soft cloth. 


How It Works

Material Properties

When a material viewed through an optical microscope is compared to its nano-meter counterparts (particle size 1nm – 100nm), the properties vary significantly.

Modification of Properties

Materials exhibit a host of favorable properties when used at nanoscale. Nanotechnology allows us to engineer and hone these properties to meet the needs of specific applications.

Anti-Fouling Solution

The ultra-thin, multi-functional surface treatment is measured in nanometers of thickness. These treatments reduce the buildup of various types of contaminants by altering the surface energy of the treated material.
