Anti-fouling and easy-to-clean nanocoatings are applied to metal, glass, ceramic, stone and plastic surfaces for protection against biological, organic and chemical attack. Application is relatively simple and these coatings are transparent with good adhesion on the substrate without difficult pre-treatment. They offer anti-stick, easy-to-clean and anti-corrosion properties and possess excellent mechanical and chemical stability. This allows for exceptional corrosion prevention, improved safety and reduced maintenance on surfaces and structures.
