Nanotechnology update from the Window Film Association of Australia and New Zealand

Abstract:
Advanced ceramics have been used by NASA to thermally protect the Space Shuttle Orbiter.

Now, due to nanotechnology, they are being used by window film suppliers in the manufacture of solar control window film.

Seen as the most important advance in window film since its inception in the 1960s, ceramic nano-technology is being used to manufacture films with high performance.

A ‘nano' is a measurement unit that is one billionth of a metre, or in comparative terms, one thousandth of the diameter of a strand of adult hair. Nanotechnology is the ability to create structure and materials at the atomic level, one molecule at time.

Rob Hamilton, President of the Window Film Association of Australia and New Zealand (WFAANZ), comments, "While still relatively new, ceramic nanotechnology is an exciting development in the window film industry, further improving the advanced capabilities of film and validating our industry-wide commitment to product refinement."
