NANO COATINGS - GREAT BENEFIT OR GREAT RISK - HIDDEN DANGER BEHIND NANO COATINGS

Posted 5/5/2015

NANOMAGIC COATINGS CHARACTERISTICS - “MAGICAL TWELVE”

NanoMagic, an Irish company, provides titanium-based nano coating solutions for various private and commercial applications. This company has developed Magic IQ Coat+ water based, transparent TiO2 coating liquid that utilities the photo catalytic effect of nano grade titanium to incorporate anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, UV protection, odor removal, VOC-removal, self-cleaning and anti-static properties to any type of substrate or fabric. This product could be easily used for any type of surface ranging from glass, ceramics and plastics to textiles and fabrics. Easy spray on application and possibility of curing at room temperature make the product even more unique.

 

But is it safe? The answer is YES. NanoMagic put every effort to create products that are not only safe for us and environment but beneficial for both too. Through detailed studies of available technologies, the use of our knowledge, adding innovation, and complementing this with conscious and prudent attitude to Nanotechnology, we carefully chose raw materials that underlie all of our products, now existing and future ones: Zirconium, Quartz, Diamond, Tourmaline, Maifan Stone, Gold, Silver, Platinum, Titanium, Magnesium, Potassium and Water, we call it "magical twelve". Magical twelve is our foundation, policy, secret and philosophy; in one word speaking "nanomagic®".

Utilizing “magical twelve” ingredients we have endless opportunity to create products so advanced that successfully can be used in aerospace, so gentle that are suitable for baby and so easy to apply, that can be used at home by you. You are meeting “magical twelve” on daily basis for example gold and silver jeweler you wear, your quartz watch, sand in your child sandpit, sun filters, or even in food you eat and milk you drink.

To give you better idea how safe our products are we compare two products in the table Natural Sunscreen and Magic IQ Coat+. We want to emphasize that our product is notable for high adherence and low concentration of active substance (nano particles) in the product, only 0.5% rest is water.

The result is clear. To make it even clearer when it comes to number of particles absorbed by body we can say that two hours exposure to “Natural Sunscreen” is equivalent to 15 years of exposure to “Magic IQ Coat+”. If such sunscreen is commonly accepted as green solution and natural safe product, so where we can place Magic IQ Coat? The answer is easy.  It is real green product from its essence, not green from its label.

RESPONSIBLE APPROACH TO THE HEALTH, SAFETY AND THE ENVIRONMENT

We believe that everything designed by nature is safe and good for us, before we chose our magical ingredients we consider whether contact with these materials represents a new type of exposure, or whether organisms have been exposed to nano materials for millions (even billions) of years. If there exist naturally occurring materials, that are similar in structure and function, there would be a reduced likelihood of adverse ecosystem and health effects.

This is an important part of NanoMagic HSE Philosophy.

The current global warming phenomenon has rekindled efforts to create greener and sustainable technologies and products that will not only benefit mankind, but also preserve the environment. Legislation and regulations has been the motor for the development of cleaner and greener technologies and solutions.  This creates a huge impact on the coating and paint industry in which nanotechnology has given a huge boost to comply with the strict rules. Taking into account growing skepticism on health, safety, and the environmental (HSE) aspects of nanotechnology, and use of nano materials we put every effort to make sure that delivered technology is safe and non-toxic for human and environment. By understanding the environmental issues we are developing innovative and flexible solutions to bring about change. Our goal is to provide solutions that enable the transition from environmentally non friendly technologies to safe and natural ones.

With passion to life and nature, and with little bit of nanomagic® we use and “mix” only natural well known for ages ingredients, (nontoxic for you, your baby, pet and environment)  it is our “magical twelve”.

1)         Water –all our products are water based.

2)         Crystals – Zirconium, Quartz, Diamond, Tourmaline, Maifan Stone.

3)         Precious Metals – Silver, Platinum, Titanium.

4)         Minerals – Magnesium, Potassium and Zinc 

Above materials as we mention before are building blocks of our products, all of them are occurring naturally in the environment, commonly known as safe and used for ages.

 

Because Nanotechnology is a new technology, not yet explored, particularly the impact of nano particles on human organism, Nanomagic has developed HSE strategies, which takes care of these aspects. At the moment wide range of nano materials is available on the market, whether all are harmless, of course not. An example can be fluorine. Fluorine in nano scale is relatively cheap and has many unique properties such as resistance to high temperatures, anti-bacterial, superhydrophobic, anti-static, and many others. That is why it is very often used in functional coatings products. The liquid structure basis coatings are fluorinated surfactants that arefluoro-polymers with no analogs in nature and synthesized artificially. These coatings, previously developed primarily for military purposes, are now very common in household environment, for example cookware or new generation super hydrophobic coatings for mostly any surface around home including cloths – the world leader DuPont™ and his famous Teflon® coating is based on fluoro-polymers.

We know the great properties of nano fluorine, and we know as well the great health danger carried with it. NanoMagic HSE (Health, Safety and Environment) Policy is disqualifying fluorine from our raw material list, so other toxic ingredients such as: lead, asbestos, artificial atoms and matter and so on.

As we said to manufacture our products we are using only “magic twelve” ingredients.

 

In addition to natural and non-toxic properties our nano coatings involve the dispersion of nano materials in a liquid medium (water), what is significantly reduces exposure to nano particles during process of application .A majority of the researchers across the globe have reported the harmless nature of these nano dispersion as compared to conventional nano materials. We have developed the most appropriate technique of application and training program for commercial and industrial applicators.

 

Starting at supplier, throughout development and manufacturing finishing on end user, we always care that nanotechnology is delivered on every level with respect.
