Home > Press > The glasstec trade fair: Nanogate AG presents high-performance surfaces for interior applications

Nanogate AG (ISIN DE000A0JKHC9), a leading international nanotechnology enabler, will be demonstrating the performance of its pro.Glass® product range at glasstec. The innovative protective system for all glass surfaces inside buildings uses Nanogate technology to ensure that enhanced surfaces retain their value durably. In addition to the proven pro.Glass® Clear, pro.Glass® Matt and pro.Glass® Color products, the latest Nanogate innovations will also be on display. The company made another addition to its product palette this year with pro.Glass® Barrier 401, an optically neutral barrier coating for UV light, and has already signed up the first customers.

The glasstec trade fair: Nanogate AG presents high-performance surfaces for interior applications

Göttelborn/Düsseldorf, Germany | Posted on September 28th, 2010

Nano-based mechanisms provide for multi-functional product properties

Many years of experience in glass processing and glass coating with a focus on the use of nanotechnological processes and materials has made the pro.Glass® product line one of the leading coating systems in the glazing arena. pro.Glass® Barrier 401 not only cuts out 99% of UV light but with its very thin coating it also offers impressive easy-to-clean performance and is highly cost-effective. The enhanced glass surfaces can be cleaned more easily and are impervious to common household detergents. The liquid coating material has been designed for dip-coating plate glass and hardens at particularly low temperatures. As well as for general glazing, as in shop windows, pro.Glass® Barrier 401 is also ideally suited to high-quality applications such as glass for museum collections, picture frames and display cabinets.

Leading supplier of coatings for glass shower cubicles

Our expertise in developing easy-to-clean glass surfaces for shower cubicles has helped to ensure that consumers nowadays ask for nanotechnological solutions as standard. Well-known makers of shower cubicles use pro.Glass® Clear to achieve the desired easy-to-clean effect using optimised production processes, thereby gaining an edge over their competitors.

In recent years Nanogate AG has continuously expanded its product range in the field of high-performance surfaces. In addition to "invisible protection" for clear glass, its customers use pro.Glass® Matt to produce a lasting enhancement that durably protects matt glass from collecting dust and fingerprints. This robust, durable handling protection opens up numerous design opportunities for manufacturers, especially as the product variations developed by Nanogate can be applied quickly and cheaply. The ultra-fine glass structure is "filled in" with a coating of the nano-scale modified polymer solution, without the matt effect being impaired.

pro.Glass® Color works on the same principle, offering handling protection for matt glass as well as additional colouring opportunities for decorative and furniture glass. This coloured coating also has all the advantages of the Nanogate products for high-performance surfaces and is available in a variety of colours (blue, red, yellow, green, grey, orange, etc.).

The pro.Glass® Clean series completes the product range. It includes special cleaning agents to pretreat glass prior to coating, and detergents to ensure that the coated glass surface retains its special properties for even longer.

"Thanks to our permanent innovation in recent years, Nanogate AG has been able to develop an extensive product portfolio for enhanced high-performance industrial surfaces and to position it on the market. Our development laboratories are working permanently on innovative industrial solutions that will continue to give our customers a competitive edge," says Andreas Weis, head of the Industrial Surfaces division.

Innovation-driven competitive advantage:

Using this guiding motto, Nanogate AG launched a comprehensive innovation offensive in 2009 in order to open up new growth prospects for its clients. To achieve this, Nanogate increased its investments and funding significantly - in particular in the 2009 financial year - and has since then presented a multitude of innovations. Since going public in 2006 the company has already invested several million euros in developing new technology platforms and has transformed these into marketable products. Nanogate has successfully illustrated its expertise in more than 180 cases, using innovations to provide its clients with a competitive advantage.


About Nanogate AG
Nanogate is a leading international enabler in the nanotechnology growth market and so opens the gate to this technology for its customers. The firm, which is based in Göttelborn (Saarland), enables the programming and integration of additional properties – such as non-stick, anti-bacterial, anti-corrosive and ultra-low friction – into materials and surfaces. Nanogate thereby gains a competitive edge for its customers by product refinement using chemical nanotechnology. Nanogate covers a wide range of industries, functions and substrates on the basis of technology platforms. The company thus provides a decisive interface for the commercial use of chemical nanotechnology and bridges the gap between the suppliers of raw materials and industrial conversion into products. In doing so, Nanogate concentrates as an enabler on one of the most attractive segments in the industry. As a partner in innovation, Nanogate provides many services along the value chain – from development and production of innovative nanocomposities and nanostructured materials to powerful support for innovation and product integration.

The Nanogate Group currently has 81 employees in all (as of July 2010) and since commencing operations in 1999 has been a trailblazer in nanotechnology. The company has first-class customer references (e.g. ABB, BSH Bosch-Siemens Haushaltsgeräte, Kärcher, Koenig & Bauer AG, Opel and REWE Austria) and many years’ experience of different industries and applications. To date, more than 180 projects have gone into mass production. Nanogate has also entered into strategic cooperations with international companies such as the GEA Group and Dow Corning. The Group also includes Nanogate Advanced Materials GmbH, which specialises in complex applications like high-performance optics, FNP GmbH in the area of sport/leisure, majority shareholdings in Holmenkol AG and in GfO Gesellschaft fuer Oberflaechentechnik mbH and a shareholding in sarastro GmbH.
