The revolutionary water-, oil- and soil repellent
jump back |
The principle of our renowned NANO-CLEAN® impregnation
is based on the term ‘bionic’ which means learning from nature. For instance to study, analyse and reproduce the
structure of the shark’s skin
and surface chemistry of the remarkable Lotus leaf.
Contrary to the assumption that
the shark's skin is a very smooth surface, in reality the structure of
the shark’s skin is rough: microscopically small ribbles direct water
and soil past the skin reducing the friction coefficient dramatically.
A simular structure prevent leaves from being wetted by liquid. Having a
contact angle between 90° and 170° to an unstructured surface of the
same material, droplets roll off a leaf's surface like mercury, taking
mud, tiny insects and contaminants with them:
known as the lotus-effect
