Nanotechnology

Key technology of the future
Nanotechnology is the understanding and control of matter at the scale of single atoms and small molecules. The word "nano" means "dwarf" in Greek: a nanometre is one millionth of a millimetre. The diameter of a human hair is fifty thousand times larger.

The object of research of nanotechnology is the specific fabrication of tiny particles and structural units. This enables the production of materials with novel properties. Thus nanotechnology opens up totally new application areas.

  • Surface properties can be directly influenced
  • In the automotive industry nano-particles make paints more scratch-resistant
  • Plastics (eyeglass lenses) can also be hardened with nanoparticles
  • In leather care soil-resisting properties are strengthened

Nanotechnology can change the properties of surfaces to be treated in an outstanding manner.
