Abstract:
The Commerce Management of Nili Fam Company, which is one of the active nanotechnology companies in Iran, announced that the Central Bank of the Islamic Republic of Iran is willing to use self-cleaning paints produced by the company under the commercial name of SC-Nanopaint in the façades of the bank's buildings.

Iran to Use Home-Made Self-Cleaning Nano Paints in Façades of Central Bank's Buildings

Tehran, Iran | Posted on August 14th, 2011

A contract of approximately $300,000 was signed between Nili Fam Company and the Central Bank of the Islamic Republic of Iran in May 2011, and it was decided that the self-cleaning nanopaint be used in the façade of the building in order to protect it against environmental hazards and reduce maintenance and cleaning costs.

SC-Nanopaint oxidizes surface pollutants such as fatty particles, and the surface can be cleaned easily by washing with a little water. In addition to having self-cleaning properties, the surfaces coated with this nanopaint will have anti-bacterial characteristics too.

According to the Commerce Manager of Nili Fam Company, Iran Khodro Company has recently employed TI-Nanopaint humid-thermal insulations manufactured by this company, and it is predicted that those coatings will be used in Iran Khodro's buildings.

The application of thermal-humid insulations not only decreases 37-40% of energy consumption, but also prevents the entrance of heat to the building in summer and the exit of heat from the building in winter.

Taking into consideration the higher price of the similar self-cleaning paints and humid-thermal insulations imported from foreign countries, it is predicted that the presence of such domestically-made products in the market will help the reduction of the costs in the said two fields.
